Industry’s renewed interest in Powder River Basin was the catalyst for NUTECH’s 2017 release of Powder River Basin Study version 2.0.  This is an upgrade to NUTECH’s PRB Niobrara study, first released in 2010.  PRB v2 includes petrophysical and geomechanical analyses on 125 wells in the basin.  The analyses covers formations of interest from the Teckla through the Muddy, where zones are present.  These include Teapot, Parkman, Steele, Sussex, Shannon, Niobrara, Mowry, and Muddy.  Individual well analyses were placed into a 3D geologic model.  41 reservoir property maps were created on the Niobrara & Mowry resource horizons.  Mapped parameters on Niobrara and Mowry include average and net porosity, average and net permeability, average clay volume, TOC, OIP, Hydrocarbon Pore Volume, Brittleness, Structure, and Isopach. 

This isn't just characterization of the reservoir. This improves every facet of E&P.
More accurate evaluation. Stronger development strategy. Smarter completions. Better results.
The science of reservoir intelligence isn't new. But the application, the way we do it, is changing everything.
We have completed full field studies on some of the most prolific basins in the world. Jump-start your exploration right here.
In addition to hydrocarbon production, the chief purveyors of reservoir intelligence have passion for the industry and the community.
