What we offer:

Rock Mechanics

Petricore is a diversely skilled geomechanics and special core analysis laboratory providing standard and customized testing and consulting services to aide operators in drilling, completion and field development of unconventional reservoir. Extensive amount of testing has been performed to provide critical rock mechanics testing results for geomechanics models inclusive of acoustic velocity and anisotropy measurement as a function of stress. The tests are carried out in accordance with international standards, providing high quality results and short data delivery times.

During the last years, our team has performed most of the rock mechanics tests done to cores from both onshore and offshore wells located in Mexican territory.

Petricore is currently the only one in Mexico that has performed tests on salt core samples and on poorly consolidated cores from the Gulf of Mexico.

Geochemical Analysis

Petricore offers a complete range of geochemical analysis on rock, oil and gas samples, as well as regional basin studies to evaluate conventional and non-conventional reservoirs.

Complete Geochemistry Services: Total organic carbon (TOC), Rock-Eval Pyrolysis and thermal maturity measurements, vitrinite reflectance, maceral analysis, bitumen extraction, kerogen types, saturated biomarkers, aromatic hydrocarbons, gas chromatography, liquid chromatography (SARA), carbon and sulphur isotopes, among others.

Reservoir Fluids Analysis

We offer a full range of PVT studies, water formation analysis, oil-based mud evaluations and flow, assurance screening with rapid turn-around. High resolution compositional analysis can be combined with isotopic measurements and pressure gradients for highly detailed studies.

Our PVT services include:

  • Surface separator, sample restoration and recombination
  • Transfer of fluid samples from formation testing tools
  • Sample restoration and separator sample recombination
  • Complete PVT Analysis (black oil, volatile oil and gas, and condensate)
  • Isotopic analysis
  • Smart PVT program for EOS programs
  • PVTMod system for predicting petroleum fluid properties based on wireline formation tests
  • Standard oilfield water analysis (Stiff analysis)

Biostratigraphy

Petricore offers a wide range of paleontological services (micropaleontology, nanopaleontology and palynology) in conjunction with services of sedimentology, reservoir geology, interpretation of well logs and stratigraphic consultancy.

We have the ability to study the entire geological column. All our staff uses StrataBugs for the management of biostratigraphic data and its correlation with geological data, well logs, lithological charts, etc.

We have specialists in the provision of biostratigraphic services in site (in real time) and in quantitative studies of high resolution reservoir scale, as well as paleoenvironmental interpretations, calibration of absolute ages, calibration of stratigraphic sequences and basin studies.

Services of Preparation, Conditioning and Delivery of Physical Samples

Petricore has the services of preparation, conditioning and delivery of samples obtained from the subsoil during the activities of exploration and extraction of hydrocarbons, in order to comply with the technical guidelines required by the hydrocarbons legislation in Mexico, which are established in its manual of delivery of physical samples.

We count with experienced personnel in processing and conditioning of physical samples that includes: conventional rock cores and samples derived from these, drilling cuttings, sidewall cores, thin sections, outcrop and fluid samples.

We also have the resources and materials necessary to ensure the preservation of different types of samples of both rock and fluids.

Drilling Fluid Additives

Petricore further provides the supply of Drilling Fluid Additives such as weighting agents, primary and secondary emulsifiers, organophilic clays, gilsonite, viscosifiers, suppressors and clay inhibitors, as well as any product necessary for the formulation of a drilling fluid in general.
