Petroleum System Modelling
We use Petroleum Systems Modelling to integrate all the geological elements and processes that are fundamental to the evaluation of a petroleum system. This includes establishing the timing of petroleum generation from source rocks as compared to that of trap formation.
Petroleum system modelling uses digital data of one or more petroleum systems to reconstruct the evolution of all elements involved as a function of geologic time. It provides a record of the generation, migration, accumulation and loss of petroleum during basin evolution. Calibration to available natural data constrains the model, while sensitivity studies are used to assess the scope of possible alternatives leading to the same results.
Models can be performed in 1, 2 or 3D. We use the suite of Petromod®(SLB) basin modelling software.
