Schlumberger Introduces a Novel Petrophysics and Productivity Analysis Service for Carbonate Reservoirs


EDINBURGH, May 2008 - Schlumberger announced today the release of its new Carbonate Advisor* petrophysics and productivity analysis service.

Carbonate Advisor offers a systematic analytical framework to efficiently deliver a timely, comprehensive petrophysical evaluation of carbonate rocks. The system integrates information from magnetic resonance and elemental capture spectroscopy, as well as other logs and core data, to produce a single, complete formation evaluation of carbonate reservoirs.

“Since 60 percent of the world’s conventional oil reserves are held in carbonate reservoirs, Schlumberger is committed to providing customers with interpretation systems and services designed to understand the inherently complex nature of carbonates,” said Bernard Montaron, carbonate theme director, Schlumberger. “The Carbonate Advisor service helps us to provide our customers with a systematic and robust petrophysics and producibility analysis of the carbonate rock matrix that was not previously available.”

In field tests in a wide variety of carbonate reservoirs, relative permeability and water saturation measurements from Carbonate Advisor matched discrete core analysis data. These continuous measurements permitted a more accurate prediction of fluid flow leading to better production performance.

The Carbonate Advisor service can be applied easily and with equal effectiveness either packaged with newly acquired data or to suites of previously acquired data. It maximizes the value of all the log measurements taken by using them together to solve a complex problem.
