Mud gas Analysis

The mud gas data from wells are systematically analysed. Hydrocarbon and Seal Evaluation logs are generated for each well. Utilising these two logs in combination with sophisticated gas component comparisons and interpretation techniques, HC bearing and sealing zones can be identified, resulting in better understanding of petroleum system and different plays.

Main objectives:
  • Shows quantification
  • Acess to charge
  • Missed pay identification
  • Hydrocarbon composition
  • Productive zones
  • Sealing units
  • Hydrocarbon type
  • Permeability
  • Mud gas families
  • Water-bearing intervals
  • Migration paths identification
  • New ventures
  • License rounds
  • Exploration licenses
  • Field development
  • Near field exploration


Regional Studies

GeoProvider's Regional and Semi-Regional studies aims to provide independent data and observations on seal and charge from mud gas data and reprocessed 2D broadband seismic, which can be used as input for detailed basin modelling, de-risking of prospectivity and evaluation of potential new pays.

Additionally wells can be tied or projected onto the re-processed 2D seismic lines along with the results derived from the mud gas evaluations. In the example of the composite line, wells have been projected to a distance up to several kilometers.

In GeoProvider's Regional and Semi-Regional studies results from the individual well analysis are correlated across the study area to provide oberservations on lateral sealing and migration.


Well Correlation panels are constructed, which provides a powerful tool for regional understanding of the identified zones of interest, lateral seal correlation, integration of the well analysis with the seismic data and potentially identification of new prospects and plays.
