Field Studies & Complex Reservoir Processes

Integrated Field Development & 3D Modeling

MHA employs an integrated approach to understanding the most complex reservoirs. Our comprehensive analysis provides the framework for identifying the most efficient methods and enables accurate evaluation of oil and gas fields and reservoirs.

Geophysics

Our team applies industry-standard 2-D and 3-D seismic technology and utilizes emerging geophysical technologies on both exploration and production projects. This approach aids in efficient field development and expansion efforts.

Geology

MHA is experienced in studies involving complex structural interpretations and detailed stratigraphic descriptions utilizing sequence stratigraphy methods. Three-dimensional geospatial modeling software facilitates field studies, operational planning, and project management.

Petrophysics

Our log and core analyses are performed within a multi-disciplinary framework which provides results consistent and complementary to other available geological and engineering data.

Reservoir Engineering Analysis

Our approach provides refinement of the reservoir description, including rock and fluid characteristics, to determine the original and remaining fluids-in-place, and to provide an understanding of the current and long-term reservoir and well performance.

Reservoir Simulation

MHA’s team members have extensive experience in both black oil and compositional simulation. Our modeling capabilities range from small-scale single well reservoir models to large, full-field and multi-field models spanning entire basins.

Economic Valuation

Our team consists of experts in valuing oil and gas properties. We have the experience to perform either a conventional net-cash-flow analysis or to project economic performance under unique and complicated production sharing agreements.

Completion and Production

As part of the integrated analysis approach, MHA can assist in optimizing existing facilities or in the design of new facilities to produce, gather and process oilfield hydrocarbons.

Risk Assessment

MHA’s multidisciplinary approach aids in identifying potential risks. We can provide you with a comprehensive risk assessment describing the range of uncertainty in the results of the integrated study. This assessment will provide guidance in the decision-making process.
