Examples include: • A recent example of the calibration of the multiphase meter (MPM). A client came to Stratum because they recognized that the mix of skills and ability in the labs could be of help to them. The innovative process involved iteration between the Stratum lab, the producer of the MPM, and the client, with gas and fluid samples being sent to and from, and Stratum equipment being modified to achieve the measurement ability required by the client. The outcomes are that Stratum has secured a long-term contract with the client, and has also developed a technique that can be sold as a service to other clients. • An example of an Internal LEAN Project (all tools and equipment “in its place”) to help with Lab efficiency. Planned where it would be beneficial and what scope was appropriate, executed the project at the planned scope, but are maintaining a “watch” on how it can be continued for maximum benefit and minimum effort. The end result is an optimized “Slim LEAN” lab! • The client requested suggestions from Stratum to implement changes to the procedure for assessing SWI. The change suggested by Stratum was implementing a centrifuge process with desaturation initially by gas, and subsequent reflooding with oil. The client was very pleased with the results obtained from the upgraded setup. • The client requested a change to the protocols for PVT measurement from a condensate-producing field because of an increase in mercury and H2S content. They were specifically interested in the partition of mercury between the liquid and gas phases in the transfer line, because of the economic impacts of commingling with fluids from other fields. A process was developed combining experimental and modelling/ analytical tools to provide solutions for both the mercury and H2S pollutants. The protocol has also been adapted for wax/asphaltene precipitation from co-mingled fluids, so now has a much broader application. Stratum-Norway managed effective communications between multiple partners on the client-side and various Stratum experts. • Change management in the middle of a project due to more complexity of the samples from unconsolidated core than expected, arising from the discovery of lower-than-expected permeability, possibly as a result of the incompatibility of the samples with water used to undertake the permeability experiment A good example of “recycling a project” after a review with the client, taking it back to an earlier stage. • The “Routine” lab in Norway works in a variety of ways, both onshore and offshore to satisfy client requirements. CCUS projects are on the rise in Norway. First well drilled for CO2 injection by Equinor – Stratum delivered results (from plugging, CT scan, slabbing and analysis) from 125m of core from water-wet formation (so a rapid cleaning process!) in two weeks, 50% ahead of the expected schedule to the full satisfaction of the client.

Learning from the existing Stratum Reservoir projects and communications with clients: The early-stage project, collaborating on data collection for subsurface characterization for CCUS. This requires guidance to the clients on data collection requirements and practices, the benefits of the acquired data both for experiments/analyses conducted at Stratum, and how the results of the analyses will benefit the types of modeling that could be done by the client for storage site selection and monitoring. The aim is to have a mutually beneficial relationship, where in the client appreciated the value of data collection and therefore brings more work to Stratum. An example of how the long-term Project is a result of quality work and good communication with the client over a period of more than a decade. The longevity of the Project has benefitted significantly from excellent internal communications between different Stratum offices as well as communication between the clients (which are a large NOC and IOC) and those offices. Importantly, coordination is handled centrally. A note of caution that the NOC coordinators are pre-filtering information which is practical yet limits Stratum project managers in learning the complete set of requirements. This long-term project is a perfect project for learning communications and building relationships. Field Operations in West Africa: Example of how the core analysis results would have impacted the operators' decisions on whether or not (in this case not) to go ahead with the DST program. The data from cores and fluid sampling are usually assumed by operators to be contributing to a bigger understanding of the field. In this case, however, if “hot shot” analysis had been done at the well-site, or if the client had waited for core analysis results before selecting the intervals for DST, there would have been a more positive outcome. This operator has modified the well site procedures and now takes core plugs at the rig site and analyzes them immediately, using an on-site facility designed and built by Stratum. Time is the essence and optimized logistics of the core handling deliver multimillion-dollar savings to the client.

Principios y Aplicaciones de los Métodos de Exploración Gravimétrico y Magnético
$ 69.99 USD

Las notas y apuntes que se encuentran a continuación constituyen un RESUMEN de las actividades docentes en el Departamento de Ciencias de la Tierra de la Universidad Simón Bolívar del Profesor Víctor Graterol. Caracas. Venezuela. Trato de exponer en forma práctica los Principios Fundamentales de los Métodos de Exploración Gravimétrico y Magnético. Incluyo un capítulo donde se exponen las formas principales de INTERPRETAR estos Datos Potenciales. En este capítulo se muestran ejemplos de interpretaciones que ayudarán a comprender la utilidad de estos métodos de exploración, tanto en áreas de detalle como en aspectos regionales. Tengo que agradecerle a mi esposa Magaly Campos de Graterol y a mi amigo y casi hijo Álvaro Vargas Gómez, que siempre estuvieran presionándome para que hiciera este resumen. Ellos consideran que será de utilidad como referencia a los profesionales de Ciencias de la Tierra que le interesen estos temas. También incluyo al Dr. Mario Caicedo, quien me ayudó a completar la instalación de las fórmulas y ecuaciones que acompañan este trabajo. El Profesor Douglas Bravo, Jefe del Departamento de Ingeniería Geodésica de la UCV fue de gran ayuda en la definición de parámetros geodésicos que acompañan este resumen. La profesora Milagrosa Aldana del Departamento de Ciencias de la Tierra de la Universidad Simón Bolívar, me ayudó muchísimo no solo en la parte conceptual, sino en aspectos de edición
