Kinetics and Stable Gas Isotopes Simulation

The analysis and interpretation of stable gas isotopes allows fast determination of key fluid properties and sweet spots during drilling or completion

  • Modeling of generation kinetics of hydrocarbon components from thermal cracking of immature source rocks by a system of pyrolysis experiments
  • Isotopic modeling and calibration of gases generated from thermal cracking of immature source rocks
  • Estimation of fluid properties by reference to gas isotopes
  • Correlation of gases in an exploration area to their sources
  • Assessment of mixed source hydrocarbons and the timing of hydrocarbon generation
