Malcom Fluid Characterization Software

Enable the processing and interpretation of analytical chemistry data to provide greater insights into hydrocarbon samples.

Solve exploration and production issues with organic geochemistry

Geochemistry can be applied to all phases of a field life cycle: exploration, appraisal, development, production, and abandonment. Malcom software offers geochemical engineering solutions by processing gas chromatography data (GC-FID, GC-MS, GC-MS-MS, GC-2D, etc.) from different vendors.

The comparison of oil GC fingerprints provides information on biomarkers, reservoir connectivity, estimation of the size of reservoirs, and production allocation calculation. With Malcom software, a comprehensive suite of tools are embedded within a single application to process chromatography data and to perform statistical calculation, delivering fast data interpretation.

Core benefits

  • Efficiency: Achieve simultaneous, automated processing and interpretation of multiple data samples.
  • Reproducibility: Achieve better reproducibility and repeatability of gas chromatography data processing, with harmonization of the baselines and peak area.
  • Accuracy: Leverage solid theoretical background and robust statistical methods on your results.
  • Extensibility: Extend and customize Malcom fluid characterization software by integrating your own analytical workflows with Python scripting.

Make the most of Malcom fluid characterization

  • Oil composition: Provide oil composition (individual compounds and cuts) from chromatograms in a few mouse clicks and a matter of seconds. Automated peak and cut integration combined with possible analysis subtractions provides access to the compositional input necessary for PVT analyses in a snapshot.
  • Petroleum systems charge characterization: Process chromatography data to provide information on source rock presence, thermal maturity, and oil-source rock correlation, or to identify a missed petroleum system in a producing field.
  • Reservoir characterization: Estimate the size of reservoirs and characterize reservoir compartmentalization using the patented “distribution method”.
  • Production surveillance: Perform time-lapse geochemistry, production monitoring, and production allocation calculation based on the fingerprinting method via specific production allocation modules.
