(Image source: Schlumberger)The global oilfield service company Schlumberger has launched reservoir rock and fluid analysis laboratory in Houston, Texas, aiming to enabling experts to better leverage physical and digital rock and fluid analysis for comprehensive reservoir characterisation

The Houston reservoir laboratory features a portfolio of Schlumberger reservoir characterisation technologies, which span downhole rock and fluid data and sample acquisition through well site and lab analysis, said the company.

“Integration of data and insight from field and lab measurements in the DELFI cognitive E&P environment enhances collaboration across exploration and production teams to realise the full potential of all available data and science in optimising oil and gas assets,” Schlumberger further explained.

Speaking to the press, Hinda Gharbi, president of reservoir characterisation group in Schlumberger, noted, “The expansion of the Houston reservoir laboratory accelerates our customers’ access to our proprietary technologies, digital models and petro technical domain expertise to overcome technical challenges across the life of the field.”

According to Schlumberger, the 123,000 sq ft facility is staffed by scientists, engineers and technicians working across the spectrum of reservoir rock and fluid analysis. The facility employs new technologies aiming to improve hydrocarbon production and recovery, including Maze microfluidic SARA analysis, unique Fluid Inclusion Technologies (FIT), Malcom interactive fluid characterisation software and CoreFlow digital rock and fluid analytics services.

In addition, the Houston lab also houses the Schlumberger production technologies centre of excellence for conducting research, formulation and testing of production chemicals.
