SRK has had considerable success using a range of non-seismic tools to reconstruct basin architecture and map petroleum systems
SRK Petroleum integrates innovative technologies to maximise provenance, thermal maturity and thermal history information for source rocks, adding significant value to petroleum exploration success. Thermal History and Maturity Apatite Fission Track Thermochronology (AFTT) Apatite Uranium-Thorium/Helium Thermochronology (U-Th/He) Vitrinite Reflectance (VR) Fluorescence Alteration of Multiple Macerals (FAMM®) The amount of oil...
SRK's CBM workflow begins with developing a regional geological and hydrological model of coal beds in the basin
SRK's CBM workflow begins with developing a regional geological and hydrological model of coal beds in the basin. We integrate historical data, such as mining, drilling, completion and operation practices into our exploration model. Finally, we identify controls on production and establish production domains. Our key considerations in prospecting for...
SRK specialises all aspects of source rock and hydrocarbon characterisation and quality assessment
Source Rock Geochemistry & Thermal Maturity One of the critical events in the petroleum system is the generation of oil or gas from a source rock. To enable the generation of hydrocarbons, the source rock must meet minimum standards in terms of its geochemcial composition, this is assessed by measuring...
SRK has had considerable success using a range of non-seismic tools to reconstruct basin architecture and map petroleum systems
Basin Evolution The evolution of sedimentary basins is largely controlled by a response in the crust to tectonically driven forces. The way in which the crust responds to those forces is controlled by the strength, composition and fabric of the crust at the time of the tectonic event. Knowing the...
SRK can determine for a particular formation or geographic location the key controls on reservoir quality and the relative timing of the occurrence of these controls.
In the petroleum system, one of the key requirements is the presence of a high quality reservoir rock, this rock can either be siliciclastic (i.e. sandstone) or carbonate (i.e. limestone or dolomite). The quality of a reservoir can be defined with reference to two main rock properties: Porosity - this...
