The petrophysical analysis of core plugs and sidewall-rock samples is key to providing rock properties that are essential to reservoir performance forecasting, reservoir management, material balance calculation and multiphase flow simulation. These properties include absolute permeability, porosity, relative permeability, capillary pressure and the electrical resistivity of the rock, among others,

Pressure-volume-temperature (PVT) analysis is key to understanding how hydrocarbon composition, viscosity, density and compressibility change with pressure and temperature. Knowing how a specific hydrocarbon will react during production is essential to maximizing recovery in the shortest possible time and at the lowest possible cost. With this in mind, BPS offers
Last week, ANP published the monthly oil and natural gas production results for February 2020. During the month, 3.783 million barrels of oil equivalent per day were produced, including 2.972 million bbl/d of oil and 129 million m³ per day of natural gas. Oil production decreased 6.2% MoM but increased
We are currently modifying the way we present the Rock Geochemical data in the Brazil Geodatabase. Today, there are more than 100,000 analyzed rock samples from 544 selected wells, with around 130 wells covering the Santos and Campos basins. The total organic carbon, rock-eval pyrolysis and vitrinite reflectance methods allow us to obtain total organic carbon (TOC), potential yield (S2), hydrogen index (HI), free
We all know how hard social distancing can be. For those looking for a little escape, here is a fun diversion to test your knowledge of our all-new 3D PSM study of the deep and ultra-deep waters of Sergipe-Alagoas, one of Brazil’s premier frontier basins. Just Relax and Enjoy!
