Reservoir engineering at rockflow

Rockflow reservoir engineers work closely with other disciplines in an integrated approach which is flexible and client focused. Our senior engineers perform the project work and are also the point of contact for our clients.

Rockflow’s wide reservoir engineering experience allows recoverable volumes to be estimated in a robust and transparent way and is a key element in the Reserves audits and the Competent Persons Reports that Rockflow frequently produces.

Dynamic modelling

Rockflow has the skills, tools and experience to undertake a range of dynamic modelling studies. Depending on the project objectives, we can construct complex geocellular models and prepare these for simulation, or, if required, run and QC existing 3rd party models. In all cases we endeavour to identify key reservoir performance drivers, allowing the client to take appropriate development decisions.

Material balance

Classical material balance techniques allow Rockflow reservoir engineers to identify the key elements underlying reservoir performance; whether due to a gas cap, an aquifer, formation compaction or a combination of a number of drive mechanisms. An initial material balance analysis can often help guide subsequent simulation work.

Decline analysis

Decline analysis allows historic production rates to be matched to mathematical curves.

This technique is most appropriate when used on fields with historical production where oil, gas and water trends can all be identified. These trends are then projected and used to forecast production both at the well and field level.

In-house software

We have our own Eclipse simulation licences which our experienced reservoir engineers and consultants use to run either black oil or composition models.
