Reservoir Engineering

RPS Energy has worked in almost every petroleum basin in the world, undertaking projects ranging from niche specialist work to large multi-disciplinary E&P studies. This mix of experience and expertise comes from a highly-experienced staff and associates, comprising a wide range of surface and sub-surface disciplines.

RPS reservoir assessment incorporates input from geophysicists, geologists and petrophysicists, into the construction and analysis of reservoir models and reservoir simulation.

RPS can undertake a range of projects from a full field integrated or reservoir engineering studies, including reservoir simulation, to the provision of operations personnel for the control of drilling, work-over, and general production activities. We have experts in black oil reservoir simulation, as well as the core skills of reservoir fluid characterisation, well test analysis and development planning. In addition we also supply specialist services such as EOR.

All work is supported by industry-standard software packages, complemented by or own proprietary, specialist tools, but any simulation or other software can be utilised to suit the client’s preferences.
