What is Basin Modeling?

Basin modeling is the integration of geology and geochemical data with the basin history to understand and predict source rock maturity, hydrocarbon generation and phase, migration, and accumulated volume.  Basin models can also be designed to target unconventional project needs, such as quantifying the difference between generated and retained hydrocarbons and showing the consequence of gas sorption.

How Do I Use it?

Basin Models provides critical scenario testing to de-risk opportunities across your investment portfolio.  GeoMark will provide not only the maps and data related to source, charge, and preservation risks of your play/prospect, but will help you run scenarios to determine the best course of action to mitigate the risk.  Use the results from preliminary models to help you risk opportunity areas or landing zone yields.  As your project progresses, you can integrate your own specific well and production data into the same model, resulting in faster project times and more retained value.  All data generated from the basin model can be delivered to your team for integration into petrophysical and engineering models.

What Data Do I Need to Get Started?

GeoMark has an extensive set of pre-existing studies and proprietary data that can be used to start a basin modelling project with very little additional input.  However, the best models are those that are built using client generated structure maps and calibration from well data.  GeoMark will generate property maps such as reservoir pressure and temperature, generated oil volume, source rock maturity, etc., and provide them to your team as ready to use inputs for petrophysical and engineering models.

A. All of our databases contain information valuable for constraining basin models:

[/av_toggle]
[av_toggle title=’Q. I don’t want the oil geochemical interpretation, just the raw data. Can I access that?’ tags=” av_uid=’av-l19q8′ custom_id=”]

A. When downloading oil data from RFDbase, you will notice all of the interpretation columns are grouped together and can easily be removed. Raw machine files can also be downloaded from RFDbase. Contact your sales representative for help with generating a customized report.

[/av_toggle]
[av_toggle title=’Q. What are the geochemical family and maturity interpretations based on?’ tags=” av_uid=’av-ep72w’ custom_id=”]

A. The oil families and maturity interpretation are based on GeoMark’s proprietary methods described in: Zumberge, J.E., 1987, Prediction of source rock characteristics based on terpane biomarkers in crude oils: a multivariate statistical approach, Geochimica et Cosmochimica Acta, v. 51, p. 1625-1637, and more recently in Zumberge et al. 2016, Petroleum Geochemistry of the Cenomanian Turonian Eagle Ford Oils in South Texas, in J. A. Breyer ed. AAPG Memoir 110, p. 135-165. Contact the GeoMark Director of Reservoir Geochemistry for a demonstration of our interpretation process.

[/av_toggle]
[av_toggle title=’Q. What are all the methods that GeoMark offers for maturity assessment?’ tags=” av_uid=’av-boj1k’ custom_id=”]
A. Obtaining an accurate maturity assessment is critical for all petroleum system work. GeoMark has several analytical methods that assess maturity on a variety of sample types, including:
