    The whitson+ team and software have made a significant impact at Murphy, demonstrated by the ability to model over 1,000 South Texas wells, some with a vintage dating back to 2010. This work, which involved various artificial lift systems and targeted different benches, was completed within a three-month period. The team’s customer-centric culture is evident not only in their quick responses to inquiries and feedback, but also in the development of their work products. The knowledge sharing sessions, training, and whitCon conference foster a sense of community, positioning whitson+ as more than just another tool in our toolbox but a game changer for the industry.

Take PVT to the next level

PVT has an impact on essentially every discipline in the petroleum domain. However, utilizing and accessing PVT information can be costly, impractical and time-consuming. whitsonPVT streamlines the access to both PVT data and models throughout an organization. Every PVT report, black oil table, fluid initialization model or gas-EOR calculation is centralized in one place. We like to think about it as a living document for PVT data and models that ensures consistency and enables collaboration across an organization.

Our Consultancy Services

Fluid Characterization

Understanding petroleum fluids is fundamental to maximizing the profitability of oil and gas assets, as the fluids are what we produce, and what we sell. An equation of state (EOS) model is one of the most sophisticated technologies available to describe these petroleum fluids. We have over the last 30+ years specialized in EOS model development and fluid characterization. Our EOS development projects generally involve multiple fluid samples from different wells.

    Example Tasks

  • PVT Report / Data QC
  • EOS Model Development
  • Black Oil Table Generation
  • Fluid Initialization

Gas Condensate Reservoirs

whitson gas condensate services include topics related to PVT, condensate blockage, and simulation of well productivity, depletion and gas cycling using black-oil and EOS reservoir models. We work with all PVT laboratories on design, QC and interpretation of conventional and special gas condensate PVT studies. We develop EOS and black-oil PVT models with special emphasis on gas condensate issues like CGR variation, condensate blockage and gas cycling EOR. Together with Stratum Reservoir (Trondheim Lab) we quantify near-well flow leading to blockage; whitson designs and interprets the lab tests, then develops velocity-dependent relative permeability models.

    Example Tasks

  • Relative Permeability Experiment Design
  • Relative Permeability Modeling
  • Condensate Blockage Modeling
  • Gas Cycling / EOR
  • EOS & Black Oil PVT Modeling

Gas-Based EOR

Enhanced oil recovery with gas injection is a commonly used strategy to increase the recovery from existing oil and gas fields. We assist our clients in both conventional and unconventional assets in addressing the challenges related to the implementation and operation of gas EOR projects, specifically assisting in selection of wells for injection, design of injection strategy (number of wells, injection pressures & volumes), and history-matching once the EOR has been started. 

    Example Tasks

  • Design Lab Program
  • Candidate Selection & Screening
  • Gas EOR Modeling
