Souring Forecasting and Modelling

Our DynamicTVS© (TVS = Thermal Viability Shell) predictive oilfield reservoir souring modelling statistical program uses operational and reservoir survey data to forecast the production of highly corrosive hydrogen sulfide (H₂S) over the lifetime of a reservoir. Such is the strength of the program’s database, DynamicTVS© can also be used to provide guidance regarding the likelihood of souring at the earliest stages of field planning and development

Extreme Environment Souring Simulation Studies

Our UK-based research centre is equipped with specially constructed pressurised bioreactors to simulate the downhole world. Subjecting native crude oil to the pressure and temperature conditions as found within an asset, we design bespoke reservoir and waterflood simulations to establish whether or not problematic microbiological sulfide production will occur. We have been conducting pressurised bioreactor studies since 2006 and have amassed what is widely believed to be world’s largest oilfield souring dataset.
