Fugro-Jason announces RockMod services

‘Sixth generation’ reservoir characterization technology derives from UT consortium work.

Fugro’s Jason unit has announced ‘RockMod Services,’ (RMS) a new reservoir characterization offering based on sixth generation, if not sixth sense, technology. The new technique emanates from the University of Texas at Austin’s Formation Evaluation Consortium.


UT associate professor Carlos Torres-Verdin explained, ‘RockMod combines geologic information, amplitude vs. angle (AVA) sensitivity analysis and pre-stack stochastic inversion – reducing the risk associated with conventional analyses.’

Earth model

RMS builds an earth model from all available information and can be applied at any stage of a field’s development. Deliverables can include petrophysics, reservoir property determination, static and dynamic flow simulation models and economic risk assessment.


Fugro-Jason general manager David Graham said, ‘Rock properties and geostatistics can be combined in a single integrated method, providing the best possible earth model. Clients spend less time considering the limitations of their models and more time designing the most effective drilling program for their field.’
