Introduction to Hydrocarbon and Fluid Analysis
- Seminar and Lab Tour -

September 26th, 8:00am - 4:30pm


Reservoir & Development Geoscientists recognize that increasing production while controlling OPEX & CAPEX is one of the primary goals of an Integrated Field Development Team. 


Successfully understanding & managing fluids & produced hydrocarbons is the most effective method Field Development Teams can incorporate. In this seminar, Stratum Reservoir will explain a proposed workflow to understand produced fluids & mitigate common production concerns in Conventional & Unconventional assets. We will discuss sample requirements for each proposed test with an emphasis on current technologies.

*Note that this class will include a lab tour; PROPER CLOTHING REQUIRED (including closed-toe shoes & long pants).
