Formed in 2012, Quantico Energy Solutions is a data analytics company based in Houston, Texas. The company’s focus is on providing the oil and gas industry with data-driven solutions that address major challenges in the development of shale resources worldwide.
Our company employs a leading team of professionals from the oil and gas industry. The team has expertise in machine learning software, open hole logging tool design, geology, geophysics and completion engineering. We develop proprietary software to predict synthetic formation evaluation logs by utilizing only the information commonly gathered during the drilling process.
Why is this important? We believe that if oil companies have better access to rock mechanics and lithology information in unconventional wells, then drilling and completion programs can deliver significantly higher production and cost savings. In conventional oil and gas projects that run LWD tools, our synthetic logging approach can provide a risk-free contingency and cost saving measure that lowers overall logging costs by millions of dollars.
Quantico’s QLog service provides a suite of synthetic logs including shear, compressional and density. QLog can be run for both horizontal and vertical wells. The benefits to the oil company are: No separate logging run after the well is drilled. No nuclear or acoustic sources in the well. Results as fast as within minutes of drilling your well.
Real-time neutron, density and sonic logs while drilling. Now QDrill can assist with ROP optimization, wellbore stability and well placement decisions in projects where LWD services were previously not economically viable. For projects that run conventional LWD tools, QDrill can serve as a reliable add-on service that increases reliability, reduces NPT and logs every trip.
Using the primary logs from QLog, additional properties including Poisson’s Ratio, Young’s Modulus, Brittleness, Horizontal Stress and Lithology can be derived. The QFrac service provides these additional logs as well as a recommendation for an engineered completion design based on the interpretation of these formation properties by leading experts in the industry.
A typical horizontal well has ~20-40 times more samples in target zone than corresponding vertical well and with large lateral coverage. QRes enables more calibration constraints on seismic inversions, leading to less requirement for non-unique interpretation, or equivalently, a higher inversion resolution.
QLog will save you from 50% to 90% compared to logging alternatives including slim-hole logging tools, pulsed neutron (or behind casing) derived logs, and advanced cuttings analysis.
Demonstrated in multiple shale basins, QLog has the leading accuracy and reliability (per dollar spent) of any open hole logging solution in the industry. See FAQ.
No nuclear sources enter the well. No chances of sticking or losing a tool. No added personnel on-site. No additional lost-in-hole or HSSE risks.
With no added tools placed in the well, QLog avoids disrupting any rig operations or production equipment.
Tough-hole conditions or tools failures? Run a QLog rather than risking another logging run or not obtaining any log at all.
QLog can generate open hole logs in any production well where the original drilling data is available. This means logs can be obtained on wells drilled 5+ years ago.
Real-time or on-demand synthetic logging provides critical information for projects where conventional LWD services were previously not economically viable. For projects that run LWD tools, a software-based approach can serve as a reliable add-on service that increases reliability, reduces NPT and logs every trip..
Take the horizontal logging cost and risk factors out of your decision to engineer completions. Or have the liberty to conduct a multi-well program to test various placement and design criteria with minimal impact on the AFE.
QLog is the only solution that allows you to obtain open hole logs on wells already put on production. The ability to review formation properties on wells drilled years ago is critical to selecting candidate wells to re-fracture. Now utilize rock mechanics and lithology to selectively target promising intervals.
A typical horizontal well has approximately 20-40 times more samples in the target zone than a corresponding vertical well and with large lateral coverage. Utilize the horizontal sonic logs to better calibrate seismic between pilot wells, map geomechanics across a trend, and better calibrate microseismic velocity models.
