RDR has extensive experience in fault seal analysis, field- to regional-scale structural synthesis, and the geostatistical characterization of fractured reservoirs. We are also able to offer services in structural logging and accurate petrophysical and diagenetic characterization of reservoir and low-permeability rocks.
Integrated Fault Seal Analysis
RDR has developed an integrated core-to-seismic scale approach to fault seal analysis. We have been successful in providing critical data needed for the evaluation and prediction of sealing behavior on a field and basin scale.
Specimen Characterization for Reservoir Behavior
RDR offers a wide range of services for characterizing rock specimens. We have equipment for accurate quantification of permeabilities (down to less than 0.0001 mD), pore size characterization using mercury injection capillary pressures (up to 60,000 psi), and microstructural analysis (using SEM, CL, TEM).
Characterization of Fractured Reservoirs
Based on detailed core and well data, RDR offers structural, mechanical and geostatistical characterization of fractured reservoirs.
Structural Analysis from Seismic Data
RDR has extensive experience in the structural interpretation of seismic data sets, including attribute and coherency mapping, validation of structural interpretations, regional synthesis and the construction of fault juxtaposition diagrams.
Structural Logging of Core and Well Data
Information on the type, distribution, connectivity and properties of sub-seismic structural discontinuities are vital to the advanced geological evaluation of reservoirs, flow modeling and engineering applications. RDR has extensive experience in the logging and characterization of structural features in both clastic and carbonate reservoirs.
Outcrop Based Field Mapping
Detailed mapping of reservoir analogues provides critical information on the architecture of deformation features. RDR offers detailed structural mapping which can be integrated with sampling and specimen characterization programs.
Faulting and Fault Seal Training Courses and Field Excursions
Short courses, workshops and team building exercises in structural geology, fault sealing and core analysis are available.
Sponsored Research in Structural Geology
RDR conducts multicompany research projects critical to improving understanding and prediction of the properties and behavior of deformation features. We are involved in collaborative long-term research programs with in-house company research teams and have support for shorter term foundation projects.
Software and Database Construction for Fault Analysis
Application and rapid implementation of the advances in structural analysis requires robust tools. RDR has created usable software and databases for fault seal prediction and risk assessment.
Synthesis Reports on Faulting and Fault Sealing
Regional synthesis reports on faulting and fault sealing are produced by RDR. In addition, atlases and databases of fault seal types and the properties of fault rocks developed under different conditions are also being generated.
