RockProp is a software product that delivers analysis for cuttings, logs and drilling data, developed by the Cuttings Alliance - a consortium of Stratagraph, CoreSpec Alliance and PetroScale Reservoir Solutions. The aim of these oil and gas service companies was to bring mud logging, cuttings analysis and sophisticated well interpretation under one roof to reduce costs and improve well productivity.
RockProp combines log and drilling data with physical properties measured from cuttings to output reservoir parameters. Mineral models, total porosity, effective porosity and bound versus mobile fluid estimates are obtained. This provides an assessment along vertical or horizontal wellbores that is independent of log models, which can be used to refine 2D and 3D reservoir models, improve geosteering, optimise completion designs and better characterise well potential.
William Hagan, Stratagraph’s CEO, said: “Many operators have separate programs and budgets for mud logging, cuttings analysis and interpretation. RockProp brings these services together into a single product to save time and money while providing a sophisticated interpretation to improve reservoir characterisation. Better understanding of the reservoir equates to better fluid and proppant programmes, more efficient fracs, and higher well productivity for our clients.”
