Basin Modeling by Petrosar Technology

A geologically depressed area with thick sediments in the interior and thinner sediments at the edges is called a sedimentary basin.

Basin modeling tries to bring all the geological processes that happen over geological time spans within sedimentary Basins into a model. A model exhibits the entire history of the basin fill from the oldest layer deposition up to the younger one at the present time. One of the main goals of basin modeling studies is to define the petroleum system(s) properties within the basin. A petroleum system is a geologic system that bears Hydrocarbon Source Rocks and all related oil and gas; and which include all the geologic elements and processes required if a hydrocarbon accumulation is to exist. Once the petroleum system(s) within the basin defined, exploration trend are revealed and the risk of coming up with dry wells are strongly reduced.

This procedure can help exploration geologists to define the location of the HC reserves with higher accuracy and investigate the conditions of essential elements. Defining the level of thermal maturity of potential source rocks, timing of the HC generation and expulsion, time of trap formation, seal rock properties and facilitates making exploration decisions in frontier basins.

Moreover, determining the probable migration pathways throughout the basin and defining regimes of pressure and subsurface temperature further assist the exploration programs to be successful.

What Petrosar do for Basin Modeling

Petrosar Technology Ltd. is an innovator of the basin modeling studies in Iran and using a highly experienced personnel work with powerful modeling software’s such as: Temisflow, Temis Suite, Dionisos, Qubs, Genex and Geokin. This company has held many training courses to introduce this new science to the NIOC staff.

The company provides a series of complete and effective consulting services for play and prospect analysis beginning from the early stages of HC prospection to the final stages of field development and petroleum production. Moreover, our procedure includes active participation in research projects and defining many of the key properties in the petroleum systems.
