The Ryder Scott engineering group is highly experienced in all phases of reservoir analysis, reserves determination and characterization, field development and reservoir management. The firm has optimized recovery for a variety of oilfield projects, including steam and water floods, development drilling, enhanced recovery and coal-bed methane.
Performance studies range from simple decline-curve analysis to material-balance studies to sophisticated modeling that simulates the behavior of complex reservoirs. Incorporating historical data and detailed fluid descriptions, those simulations range from black-oil to fully compositional formulations. Reservoir-management recommendations may involve stimulation techniques, additional well locations, facilities upgrading, horizontal drilling and enhanced recovery through the injection of water, steam, gas, carbon dioxide and nitrogen.
