Smarter Development Plans



The industry has moved quickly to adopt new technology for drilling and completion. But as the associated costs increase, so does the break-even. Reservoir understanding is the key to getting the most from your drilling and completion investment.

The productivity of shale reservoirs can vary rapidly over short distances, so detailed reservoir petrophysical and geomechanical models are critical to planning the optimum location and trajectory of the wellbore and parameters for completion programs.

Well log


Our integarted geoscience approach can predict the best locations within a reservoir for well placement, based on a field-proven workflow that deliver advanced reservoir models to help optimize development drilling plans.

By gaining a better understanding of the factors controlling reservoir quality and exploitation potential, predictive models can be developed to explain well performance through subsurface heterogeneity and mitigate potential geohazards.

We help our clients to reduce the risk of drilling uneconomic wells and can advise on the most efficient well placements and provide input to completion optimization programs:

  • Expert petrophysical and geomechanical analysis of well log and core data 
  • Advanced reservoir characterization to produce detailed, well-calibrated geomechanical and lithological models:
    • Identifying reservoir lithofacies with elastic and geostatistical inversions
    • Deriving reservoir quality indicators such as TOC, porosity, gas saturation and brittleness with calibrated petrophysical and mineralogical logs
    • Geomechanical characterization, based on seismic attributes calibrated with well log and core measurements
    • Building predictive models to identify production sweet spots, using multi-attribute analysis of lithological and geomechanical models correlated to observed production data
  • More accurate directional drilling using MagCUBE crustal geomagnetic referencing for MWD
  • Field development plan generation using Robertson Petroleum Reservoir and Economics Group expertise
