Analogue studies are useful in frontier as well as mature areas. They can provide uncertainty limits for rock properties or reservoir and field production characteristics. For example, if you have a 10,000ft deep Miocene turbidite prospect with no nearby production, you may want to know the range of recovery factors, porosity and permeability for Miocene turbidite fields with a depth range of 9,000-11,000 ft. Cossey and Associates Inc. can provide this information in a detailed analogue study. Analogue reports have been compiled for clients in parts of East Africa and Indonesia.
We can also conduct analogue studies matching subsurface reservoirs to outcrops where architectural elements and other features may be similar. Customized literature analogue studies can also be provided.
We can conduct regional exploration studies utilizing various types of data such as core samples, seismic data, logs and other information for any region of the world, including industry active areas such as the Gulf of Mexico and West Africa. Steve Cossey has worked extensively in the Gulf of Mexico, offshore S. America, offshore Africa and the Far East.
