OSLO, Norway – Applied Petroleum Technology (APT) and SGS have entered into a global teaming agreement to enhance their service capabilities to oil and gas operators.
SGS is a testing, inspection and certification company, with 89,000 employees across 2,600 offices and laboratories worldwide. Applied Petroleum Technology provides geochemical and biostratigraphic laboratory services, basin modeling, and petroleum systems solutions to operators worldwide.
Terry W. Daigle, Global Upstream Analytical Services Business Manager at SGS, said: “By effectively packaging SGS’s current reservoir description capabilities with APT’s proven geochemical expertise, SGS and APT are able to further our global goal of effectively delivering maximum value to our clients and providing them with critical reservoir data to maximize ROI during exploration, development, and lifelong production.”
For APT, the partnership means that it can offer US-based operators PVT (phase behavior) analyses – including EOR, cEOR and coreflooding analyses – as well as reservoir and production chemistry services in addition to its own geochemical and modeling services.
For SGS, the teaming agreement enables the company to offer its customers APT’s specialist competence within geochemical production allocation and monitoring, including “APT Allomon,” plus basin modelling and well site gas analysis.
APT Allomon is a methodology developed to facilitate production well optimization in shale oil fields, reducing capex, opex, and drillex. The proprietary deconvolution software at the core of APT Allomon also allows this methodology to be readily deployed in conventional systems where source contribution determinations are crucial.
Scott Granger, APT’s regional manager for the Americas, said: “Combining SGS’ production chemistry and EOR knowledge with APT’s interpretive geochemical services allow us to jointly offer what is probably the oil and gas market’s most complete offering within subsurface reservoir fluid characterization. This full package offering will be greatly beneficial to oil and gas operators in both the USA and elsewhere around the world.”
