Beginning in September, NuTech is expanding its services by offering Mercury Injection Capillary Pressure (MICP) core analysis services to its clients. Allen Howard, NuTech’s President and CEO, states “This is an exciting technology to add to NuTech’s family of services. A standardized core analysis benefits NuTech in so many ways. First, it ensures consistency in both core processing and reservoir interpretation. Second, it enhances NuTech’s predictive solutions. This is very valuable to our clients as they continue to look for guidance while exploring unconventional opportunities.”
“I couldn’t be more excited to combine our services with NuTech’s strong history of innovation, controlled processing and industry-leading technical service. The synergy of Poro-Labs and NuTech will provide our clients with the first “real” commercial core calibrated petrophysical analysis. I look forward to continuing our exploration of the current unconventional trends and working with the rest of the team to define the key determinants of future reservoirs.” said Poro-Labs founder, Michael Santiago. Mr. Santiago will continue to run Poro-Labs operations while joining NuTech’s management team.
NuTech Energy Alliance
NuTech, headquartered in Houston, Texas, focuses on providing key evaluation services to oil and gas companies around the world. NuTech’s services can be selectively employed for numerous applications, providing the client a competitive advantage in its screening of potential prospects, its exploitation of reserves, its identification of bypassed hydrocarbons and the development of exploration strategies for new and existing properties.
Foundationally, NuTech’s core strength rests in its unique petrophysical approach to identifying bypassed and unconventional hydrocarbons based on NuLook™ petrophysics. Since NuTech’s founding in 1998, clients have also utilized NuStim™ completion design services and NuView™ 3D reservoir modeling as an integrated, multidisciplinary approach that provides a complete picture of the reservoir.
NuTech’s service experience with over 50,000 wells analyzed in over 80 countries throughout the world combined with an unprecedented accuracy rate, consistently allows clients to identify, quantify, and produce their hydrocarbon reserves in unconventional and conventional resources with more confidence – without the added expense of running new logs.
Poro-Labs, Inc. specializes in the characterization of pore throats for oil and gas reservoirs through Mercury Injection Capillary Pressure (MICP) techniques. Specifically, Poro-Labs is experienced in providing poresize and porevolume measurements. Recently, this analysis has been shown to provide a more consistent methodology for characterizing shale pore systems and determining shale permeability.
Capillary pressure is a critical parameter in reservoir characterization because it is a petrophysical property that controls the flow of different fluids in the reservoir and the amount of hydrocarbon that can be produced. MICP analysis is a common procedure for geological evaluation of conventional core, sidewalls and cuttings.
Poro-Labs has over 30 years of experience in the oil and gas field. The team is able to offer minimal turnaround times compared to industry standards and superior customer service including strict confidentiality of data.
