Services customized to your needs
MHA provides you with the exact reservoir management solution you require. We offer focused, cost-efficient assistance without overworking the problem. We work closely with you throughout the course of a project to transfer the knowledge gained from our work.
Our goal is to ensure that you receive maximum benefit from the operation and evaluation of your assets. We like to think that MHA represents not only our company name, but also the concept of Maximizing your Hydrocarbon Asset value.
From Pre-discovery through Depletion
MHA can work with you through every stage of field and reservoir development, from pre-discovery through the producing life.
We provide analysis that leads to identification of the optimum method of depletion. We do this by:
- Generating accurate forecasts of future production
- Incorporating forecasts in an economic analysis
- Identifying a plan to maximize hydrocarbon and economic recovery
Primary, Secondary and Enhanced Recovery
We use a variety of analysis tools and techniques to arrive at the best possible reservoir description and predict performance for primary, secondary and enhanced recovery.
Reserve and Economic Valuation
MHA is able to convert complex hydrocarbon recovery data and production forecast information into an economic analysis.
- Revenue projections
These forecasts are often performed on individual wells, and then aggregated into corporate projections for financial and reporting purposes.
Well Performance Analysis
MHA routinely reviews the performance of alternative well designs, including the application of horizontal wells. We also analyze operational data to determine if the current performance of a well can be improved.
Gas Storage Reservoirs
The combined performance of the reservoir, wells and surface facilities must be appropriately considered. MHA is experienced in all phases of gas storage: planning and design, field implementation, analysis of current storage operations, and the prediction of final blow-down phase of performance.
Coal Bed Methane Reservoirs
Methane production requires the additional consideration of issues related to de-watering and methane “desorption”. MHA has analyzed the coal-bed methane potential of large prospective areas and hundreds of producing coal gas wells.
The MHA Analysis Approach
MHA is expert at assisting you with the proper management of your hydrocarbon assets. We apply the most cost-effective and reliable approaches. MHA uses state-of-the-art software to assist with fluid characterization, black oil simulation, compositional simulation and thermal simulation. We are equally experienced at applying conventional analysis.
The Comprehensive Solution
MHA provides a comprehensive solution to reservoir problems. Our integrated analysis incorporates the disciplines of:
- Reservoir engineering analysis
- Reservoir simulation
- Drilling, production facility engineering
- Economic valuation and risk assessment
Our experienced project management brings all of these disciplines together to achieve an effective and efficient solution.
MHA is experienced in managing large projects that rely on input from a number of different disciplines. MHA project management controls cost and meets deadlines.
We apply conventional 2-D and 3-D seismic technology and utilize emerging geophysical technologies on both exploration and production projects.
MHA is experienced in studies involving complex structural interpretations and detailed stratigraphic descriptions utilizing sequence stratigraphy methods. Three-dimensional geospatial modeling facilities field studies, operational planning and management understanding.
Our log-and-core analysis is performed in a multi-disciplinary framework that provides results consistent with other available geological and engineering data.
Reservoir Engineering Analysis
We refine the reservoir description, including rock and fluid characteristics, to determine the fluids-in-place and to provide an understanding of reservoir and well performance.
MHA is experienced in both black oil and compositional simulation. Our models range from small-scale, reservoir models to very large, full-field and multi-field models.
Drilling, Production and Facilities Engineering
As part of the integrated analysis, MHA can assist you in optimizing existing facilities or in the design of new facilities to produce, gather and process oilfield fluids.
We have tools to perform either a conventional net-cash-flow analysis or to project economic performance under unique production sharing agreements.
MHA can supply you with a risk assessment describing the range of uncertainty in the results of the integrated study. We provide this type of analysis for reserve definition, business planning, cost-to-benefit analysis of appraisal date and contingency planning.
Helping You Maximize Your Resources
MHA thinks in business terms. We apply high-end technical analysis to tough reservoir management problems in order to help you make intelligent business decisions.
Optimize Your Reservoir Management Plan
The majority of our reservoir management studies are performed with the objective of better understanding the reservoir and arriving at an economically optimum plan of future development and operation.
Financial Planning and Business Strategy
Our reserve and economic studies are used for corporate planning or financial reporting purposes. We work with you to help set and achieve strategic goals. Recognizing the importance of uncertainty in the process of business decisions, we also provide risk assessment as part of the solution.
Acquisitions and Divestitures
MHA assists in evaluating potential acquisitions or divestitures, including identification of upside and downside potential of the properties involved. MHA also assists in the sale of properties by organizing technical data and providing technical presentations to prospective buyers.
Unitization Support/Equity Redetermination
MHA is experienced in providing support to companies in the process of unitizing reservoir ownership and in redetermining equity sharing. Our integrity and independence allow us to perform these studies either on behalf of a particular client or in the position of a neutral arbitrator.
MHA provides technology transfer to your staff members involved in our projects. MHA also presents in-house courses, including:
- Reservoir Engineering
- Reservoir Simulation Pressure
- Transient Analysis
- Complex Fluid Behavior
- Management of Uncertainty
- Overview of the Exploration and Production Process
Litigation, Regulation and Arbitration
MHA has been involved in numerous litigation, regulatory and arbitration hearings—both inside the U. S. and worldwide. We posses the communication skills and presentation abilities required in these situations. The quality of our technical analysis allows us to present a view that is consistent with the available data and can be rigorously defended.
