Field Appraisal

Whether a new exploration has just proven successful or you are looking to increase recovery and optimize a mature field, the asset must be accurately assessed to determine its true value, impact of geological uncertainties, and the appropriate plans for optimization, by conducting some or all of the following:

  • Integrated reservoir geosciences analysis including:
    • Geological
    • Petrophysical
    • Geostatistical
    • Geochemical
    • Geophysical/ Seismic
  • Geomechanical analysis
  • Reservoir evaluation and engineering studies
  • Reservoir simulation studies (black oil, PVT/ compositional or thermal)


Field Development Planning

Accurate analysis of reservoir and field data is critical for optimal field development planning and development. Avasthi Consulting provides state-of-the-art reservoir modeling services to identify the structure and properties of the hydrocarbon accumulation, to efficiently accommodate these factors in surface facilities, and to project lifecycle cost of the field development.

Avasthi Consulting provides the following services for field development planning:

  • Geomechanics analysis
  • Reservoir characterization
  • Geocellular modeling
  • Reservoir simulation studies (black oil, PVT/ compositional, and thermal)


Field Production Optimization

Field production optimization requires proactive asset management systems that continuously detect, diagnose, and remedy production problems, and improve operational performance. Avasthi Consulting provides comprehensive, flexible solutions built on industry-leading technologies that improve performance, reduce the risk of unexpected drilling costs, and boost overall recovery.
