Beicip-Franlab explorationists have developed workflows and techniques specially adapted to mature basins. These techniques aim at incorporating in a timely manner the numerous data wells usually available in mature basins (logs, cores, production data, seismics) into well organized, quality-controlled data base.
Application of new ideas and new concept allows then to revisit previous interpretations. Beicip-Franlab consultants will reconstruct sequence stratigraphy/ sedimentological models incorporating new seismic inversion results and seismic attributes. Subtle traps, diagenetic traps, stratigraphic trap will be particularly investigated. New ideas on source rocks and hydrocarbon migration pathways will be tested through the development of 3D basin modeling and stratigraphic modeling techniques.
Our explorationists will test the possibility of hydrodynamic traps driven by topography or compaction. Data pertaining to water salinity distribution in carrier beds, water chemistry, overpressure distribution, production data, will be carefully reviewed and incorporated in the analysis.
Beicip-Franlab offers a unique set of innovative technology solutions for exploration in mature basin. These tools can be used separately or in a combined way, along integrated workflows.
InterWellTM offers seismic inversion solution in mature exploration situation. Its flexible a priori impedance modeling capability can cope with all kind of a priori information (preexisting wells),
DionisosFlowTM is the ideal stratigraphic modeling tool in mature basins. It allows matching well data and known seismic interpretations, refining stratigraphic correlations and predicting reservoir and seal property distributions.
TemisFlowTM is a powerful integration tool allowing reconstructing thermal and maturity of source intervals, testing new source rocks, simulating hydrocarbon expulsions migration scenarios. TemisFlowTM, linked to DionisosFlowTM, is a superior ‘integration’ tool for the multidisciplinary exploration team.
