Advanced Formation Evaluation


Our Advanced Formation Evaluation suite provides robust and sophisticated workflows that go way beyond a ‘standard’, triple-combo, volumetric analysis.


Mineral Solver

Mineral Solver is the premier tool for non-deterministic assessment. Integrate all of your wellbore logs and core data into one solution for lithology, porosity and saturation.

  • Handle carbonate wells with complex diagenetic histories, mixed-clay wells or even heavy-mineral effects in sandstones
  • Understand unconventional reservoirs
  • Include any mineral in your rock model to truly understand downhole lithology

Saturation Height Modeling

Analyse, quality control and correct capillary pressure data the easy way with Saturation Height. Apply industry-standard or your own custom fitting functions to quickly build a robust water saturation model from SCAL Pc data. Integrated workflow with other IP modules saves significant further effort.

  • Reduce uncertainty in your petrophysical model
  • Integrate multiple saturation height functions with our Function Mixing tool
  • Apply functions to offset wells where no core Pc data is available
  • Fit and apply functions per facies or per flow unit
  • Link Free Water Level across multiple wells

Formation Testing

Organise, display, analyse and interpret your pressure test data – all in a single module. Formation Testing works with all pressure test types made with different suppliers’ downhole tools to produce a comprehensive formation test report.

Generate and visualise graphical drawdown and build-up analyses. Estimate mobility and permeability. With Formation Testing's automated tools, you can process multiple pressure tests and summarise an entire well's results in minutes.

  • QC pressure tests run by service companies
  • Produce full-blown objective analysis and robust, easily-digested reports
  • Build greater knowledge of your reservoir’s zones of interest

Hydraulic Flow Units

Classify reservoir rock into hydraulic flow grades with Hydraulic Flow Units (HFU). HFU bases its flow models on log and core data from single or multiple wells, relating permeability and porosity to production flow potential.

You can apply the HFU model as an input to IP’s statistical modules for nearby wells and define a continuous flow unit curve across the full data interval of the target well. Taking advantage of popular industry standards, HFU unlocks a powerful application for all core data across any field.

  • Predict potential production value prior to well completion
  • Identify zones with similar flow potential across multiple wells
  • Refine static reservoir models and enhance saturation height calculation, helping better estimate hydrocarbon saturation

Sand/Silt Malay

Sand/Silt Malay is an advanced IP module for calculating petrophysical properties such as porosity, water saturation and lithology volumes but designed specifically for Silty Reservoirs as found in Malay Basin.

The model is designed for very fine grained sediments with fresh to brackish formation water. The model is based on a unique type of Neutron Density crossplot where a Quartz, Silt and Dry clay point are defined. It was built to overcome interpretation problems of standard shaley sand log analysis where an overestimate of clay volume leads to too pessimistic porosities.
