One instrument and one technology for mineralogy and organic geochemistry. This reduces the footprint, personnel requirements and cost, whilst increasing certainty.
Crucial Data for the Entire Project
Every project goes through distinct stages in its lifecycle from the pre-planning modelling of the petroleum system to development and production of a commercial discovery.
At every stage, the Geo-Min™ service provides crucial quantitative data, that increases the certainty of decisions and decreases the risk of making incorrect interpretations. This has a measurable and beneficial impact on the project’s viability.
In a world where monetisation and commercialisation of a petroleum system are the goal, Geo-Min™ is one of the most important services available to increase successful outcomes.
Providing valuable insight into cost effective design and optimising return of development and production programs
Whether conventional oil & gas, shale gas, shale oils or tight sands, Geo-Min™ delivers highly valued data to decision makers:
When searching for evidence of a viable petroleum system, it is valuable to analyse legacy rock samples through Geo-Min™ in order to establish a valid mineral model for early log interpretation.
Rank Exploration Well
Establishing mineralogical profiles as the well is drilled can help demonstrate when the well has drilled key intervals and delivers additional support for formation damage management.
While drilling, Geo-Min™ also delivers value refining the basin model and significantly increasing the certainty of high cost drilling decisions.
Exploration Well in Proven Active Petroleum System
A powerful correlation tool facilitating coring and casing point decisions.
During this phase Geo-Min™ is also used to assess the extent of seal closure and integrity.
Appraisal Well Drilling
The mineralogical data delivered through Geo-Min™, characterises reservoir properties and reduces uncertainty in petrophysical analysis.
FEED specification is constrained by clay mineral profiling. Analysed through Geo-Min™, this assists with drilling fluid design optimisation for field development and completion design specifications.
PHASES 5 - 6
Development & Production
Ongoing validation using Geo-Min™ obviates the need for logging tools once the correlation model has been established and the reservoir has been characterised.
MOBILISATION & AIR TRAVEL READY
The Geo-Min™ unit is packaged in a robust travel box and has proven to be easily transported on commercial airlines, simplifying mobilisation logistics.
SAFE & PORTABLE
At considerably less than 20kg, with no harmful chemicals or x-rays, the Geo-Min™ analysis unit is a truly portable service, readily transported across international borders.
AFFORDABLE ON ANY BUDGET
Geo-Min™ is delivered at a price point that makes profiling mineralogy and geochemistry for the entire well readily affordable.
DIRECT MEASUREMENT, QUANTIFIABLE RESULTS
All data delivered by Geo-Min™ is directly measured, quantified and not dependent on the petroleum model.
SINGLE MEASUREMENT, SINGLE TECHNOLOGY
The same equipment and analysis is used for all components of the service. Laboratory based pre-well studies and rigsite analysis are completed using one technique, ensuring consistency of all data delivered.
Delivered as a complete wellsite package, Ana-min can supply Wellsite Geologists, trained as Geo-Min™ Mineralogical Analysts to ensure sample preparation is consistent, removing the need for operator training, to optimise results of analysis.
