The most important question any oil/gas company must answer is - How can I avoid a dry Hole? The answer - focus on risk reduction, especially if your growth is by the drill bit. Evaluating possible risk before drilling is much more economical than drilling a non-producing well.
OGE TRANS FRONTIER provides a risk-reduction service to assist oil/gas companies in making timely and informed decisions at every stage of the exploration process from land acquisition to drilling. The method is based on the detection of leakage patterns (i.e. anomalies) of light hydrocarbons (C1-C5) in soils that have migrated from underlying oil/gas reservoirs. This microseepage signal can be correlated with type of reservoir i.e. biogenic gas, thermogenic gas, gas liquids, and heavy/light oil. Why not have that second opinion, another layer of information, before making that drilling decision?
OGE TRANS FRONTIER can quickly ascertain at low cost the oil and gas potential in both mature and frontier regions as well as pinpoint areas for focused exploration and follow-up drilling. Our unique hand-portable sampling system allows access to environmentally sensitive areas, forested regions, fields in crop and difficult terrain. A soil gas survey is the only feasible exploration method to evaluate a large acreage block. Our new lab , equipped with the latest technology, can offer quick turnaround on analysis of light hydrocarbons as well as CO2/O2.
Consult our pricing page for information on our new, remarkable, low-cost mini-survey program, which is designed to reduce risk by predicting the outcome of a well before drilling in terms of whether it will be dry, marginal or productive and whether gas, condensate or oil. A company may wish to evaluate and rank its inventory of drill prospects by mini-surveys. Although soil gas surveys when combined with seismic do not remove all exploration risk, they improve success rates and productive wells will more often be in optimal locations.
Soil gas surveys are ideal for monitoring of CO2 sequestration projects. To measure the effectiveness of storage it is important to establish baseline studies prior to injection. Follow-up surveys are conducted on a repetitive basis to identify at an early stage any major leakages along open conduits such as improperly plugged wells and fractures/faults. For projects at the planning stage, potential sequestration sites should be screened by soil gas surveys for their storage suitability. This approach can save a great deal of time and resources, and can optimize planning.
