GeoMark Research’s established Mud Isotope laboratory has been serving the industry for over 15 years, providing timely and trusted gas analysis data from exploration and production wells around the world. Our data provides insights to the following:
Mud Gas Analyses
The figures above present a selection of data outputs and interpretations that can be made from Mud Gas Isotope Analysis. Stable gas isotopic data (methane, ethane, propane, and higher molecules) have traditionally been used as geochemical sources and maturity markers and to indicate the relative concentrations of biogenic and thermogenic components in reservoir fluids. Collected over multiple wells, this data can be used to evaluate continuity between different zones in single and multiple wells; connected reservoirs should have similar isotopic values.
Field-scale monitoring applications, such as those below, provide a cost effective, non-evasive and efficient option to assess the migration pathways of CO₂ plumes within storage reservoirs and produce quantitative evidence for formation/seal breakthrough.
CO₂ sequestration acts as Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR), liberating less mobile hydrocarbons from the formation and driving them to a monitoring well.
Baseline fluid families as defined by oil, gas and water analyses allows for the vertical fluid character (fingerprint) of each formation above, within and below the CO₂ injection reservoir.
A. Yes, we are fully stocked with IsoTubes ready to ship directly to your field locations. Return shipping instructions are also provided. If needed, we can supply a sampling manifold that should be sent back with the filled IsoTubes.
A. Yes, we have an expert team capable of collecting gases (as well as oils and waters) from your wells. Contact your GeoMark account manager for more information.
A. Yes, we can provide IsoTraps for H2S collection and analysis purposes.
