Imagine exploring with new clarity and dramatically reduced risk.
The process starts with Reservoir Understanding by answering the questions "Where do we explore with confidence?" and "How do we reduce risk?". Understanding the reservoir is the essential first step in the asset workflow that is enabled by integrated technologies and expertise.
The SIGMA³ Reservoir Understanding approach is unique because we leverage direct experience from hundreds of reservoir imaging and characterization projects in more than 70 petroleum basins around the world. We deliver technology-driven solutions that help our clients:
- Plan wells in the right locations while avoiding geohazards
- Design completions with the maximum return on investment
- Execute asset-wide investment decisions
SIGMA³ provides clients with superior reservoir understanding with our leading-edge reservoir characterization and modeling technologies. This field in the Officina Basin of Venezuela was evaluated for PDVSA and its partners to assess the potential of additional untapped reserves. The first well drilled into the new reservoir target set a production record with initial production of nearly 2000 barrels per day of heavy crude oil.
