Tue, 01/21/2020 - 12:49

Beicip-Franlab provides a comprehensive range of consulting and advisory services for the exploration and production phases of any oil and gas asset. With methodologies that offer tailored solutions to optimally match the objectives of its customers and their operational constraints, such as timing, budget and data availability, the company’s approach is based on the combination of technical excellence in every discipline, a superior multidisciplinary integration capability and a corporate culture that respects innovation and curiosity. The company’s affiliation with IFP Energies Nouvelles, one of the world’s largest independent R&D centers in the oil and gas industry, has further allowed Beicip-Franlab to develop a strong sense of innovation. Beicip-Franlab’s track record attests to its capability to innovate for the benefit of its customers. The company has, for the last 15 years, pioneered methods such as quantitative petroleum system analysis and stratigraphic modeling in exploration, modeling and simulation of production from fractured reservoirs, advanced seismic characterization methods, enhanced oil recovery, uncertainty analysis in exploration and production, fast track and highadded-value methods in process-refining, among others.

The capability to solve complex problems with multidisciplinary methods is the company’s greatest asset. Its permanent staff of experienced project leaders and technology champions have a unique experience of combining multidisciplinary data sets, multidisciplinary models and implementing multidisciplinary workflows. The company also has vast experience, acquired in large part from its work in international contexts. A clear example of this interaction and expertise is the study Pore Pressure Prediction from Basin Simulation of Heat and Fluid Flow: Application to a Realistic Earth Model in the Gulf of Mexico, developed together with the Society of Exploration Geophysicists Advance Modeling. As pore pressure prediction in the Gulf of Mexico remains critical for the exploration and development of hydrocarbons resources locked in deep and variably-pressured reservoirs, the study developed a compelling and realistic earth model to understand in detail critical mechanisms that drive the pore pressure distribution in the Gulf of Mexico. The results of the modeling were successfully blind tested with the overpressure profile from a well in the Gulf of Mexico, proving outstanding calibration in similar geological settings
