In todays competitive market, knowing the composition of the fluids in your well and determining from which zones each is coming can save money and time. Is it hypersaline brine mixed with CO2 and light hydrocarbon gases? Which gases are present?
Where and how much of each fluid is coming from each zone penetrated? Further, knowing the precise mineralogy (minerals present and in what quantities), total organic content (TOC), thermal maturity, silica/clay ratio to ascertain brittleness, micro fossil identification and distribution and porosity and how they change throughout the reservoir, could be very important. Combined, these are useful data for better determining where to land a lateral and exactly where and how best to stimulate the well.
This presentation will look at the application of Raman Spectroscopy both in the well looking at insitu reservoir fluids and in the laboratory looking at cuttings and cores.
Derived results can enable drilling fewer wells that are optimally completed to suit the reservoir, thus leading to potentially higher recovery factor.
