Source, Charge, and Migration Play Elements

GeoMark is the best laboratory option for Exploration Teams seeking to better understand source, charge, and migration play elements. Before the first exploration well is drilled, we help you leverage existing data from our RFDbase to focus on these key play elements, delineating associated risk. We then help your team design an exploration sampling plan that optimizes the full value of the well program—from offshore, downhole fluid analysis to onshore samples from flowback tests, cuttings, and IsoTube gas samples.

The types of samples collected for Exploration analysis typically include:

Key Exploration Concerns

Whether exploring conventional or unconventional plays, your Exploration Team will ask themselves two basic questions: “Where is the hydrocarbon?” and “How much is there?” GeoMark has approximately 30 years of experience in finding answers to such questions via petroleum system studies. The data and interpretation from these studies can save you several months of time traditionally spent on identifying source rock, describing a given play, and pinpointing a sweet spot.

Leveraging RFDbase for Data in Context

GeoMark’s industry recognized experts are the reason RFDbase exists. This is a database designed by experts and for experts. Other industry databases offer a collection of data that has been amalgamated from different sources, at different times, and for different purposes. RFDbase is unique in that it has been curated by us and regularly used internally to support the generation of new studies, and to also enhance proprietary client interpretations. GeoMark regularly uses the phrase “data in context.” This means that, while RFDbase is available to the industry for a subscription fee, any client who engages GeoMark for any level of support or interpretation, will realize the full benefit of this extensive, high-quality database in the results they receive. A single oil sample or source rock analysis quickly carries the power of the context of other related interpretations.

[av_toggle title=’Q. Are all the data generated from GeoMark labs entered into RFDbase?’ tags=” av_uid=’av-20vlw’ custom_id=”]

A. No! We take proprietary licensing and data security very seriously. When you engage us for independent lab analysis, your data will never be entered into RFDbase, unless we receive your written consent to do so. At your request, our technicians can also create a customized online database to store both GeoMark-generated data and data collected from other laboratories. These databases are only accessible by client-approved users, and offer a secure way to store data, while making it easy to find and easy to update. Click here for more information on RFDbase.

[av_toggle title=’Q. Why do I need regional data studies if I only operate in a small area?’ tags=” av_uid=’av-h72f0′ custom_id=”]

A. The industry’s understanding of North American resource plays has evolved over the last decade. At one time, resource plays were thought to be geologically consistent, and lack of variability was seen as a benefit to efficient planning. That mindset has been largely overturned, and depending on the play, operators can expect to see changes in source facies, hydrocarbon type, and rock quality within very small areas. Rather than conducting an extensive and time-consuming sampling campaign to determine your area’s natural variation, GeoMark studies can provide even more data at just the press of a button. Not only does this information help avoid expensive mistakes due to wrong assumptions about play consistency, it also provides solutions and predictable trends, so you can update your development plans accordingly.

[av_toggle title=’Q. Why should I pay for an interpretation of my data?’ tags=” av_uid=’av-79j9w’ custom_id=”]

A. Over the course of GeoMark’s years in business, we have seen many cycles of oil price fluctuations. The latest downturn has caused operators to significantly reduce staff, resulting in a loss of valuable industry experience. Engaging our experts to interpret your data frees up your manpower and assures access to “data in context.” We engage clients in as much of the interpretation process as desired, thereby, providing “on-the-job training” for less experienced interpreters.
