In addition to providing routine technical service in association with high-quality laboratories such as Weatherford Labs, Geochemical Solutions has conducted more than 40 non-exclusive multi-client and/or exclusive proprietary projects for assessment of both offshore and onshore areas in Brazil, Argentina, Peru, Trinidad, the Greater Caribbean and elsewhere in Latin America.
These projects, which have been widely subscribed by the energy industry, were designed to evaluate hydrocarbon charge and source characteristics in order to identify petroleum systems and associated risk at the Regional, Basin, Field and Prospect scale. These projects utilized a variety of different approaches including Surface Geochemistry, Remote Sensing, Basin Modeling, Crude Oil, Source Rock and Integrated Studies.
Petroleum geochemistry is used to better understand and predict the occurrence of crude oil in marginal basins. This approach is supplemented by results obtained from other exploration tools such as surface geochemistry and basin modeling. For exploration companies to be successful, a firm understanding of the operative petroleum systems is necessary to make intelligent choices with regard to projects and lease acquisition.
