Heavy-Oil Advisory Services

Enhanced oil recovery can boost heavy-oil production, but also results in higher operating costs. Our assessment can help.

Solomon’s integrated field-performance assessment and technical consulting services can help you apply the right resources and technology innovations to successfully optimize steam-injection recovery.

Solomon has extensive benchmarking data and expertise in heavy oil including steam-assisted gravity (SAGD) operations. Leveraging this expertise allows you to benchmark your operating cost and production efficiency for artificial lift, water management, and steam generation with your industry peers; define the gaps between current practices and best practices; and adopt practical recommendations to enhance your operating and cost efficiency. You can also access unmatched advisory and consultancy expertise including geoscience review and geological modelling, heavy-oil reservoir analysis and simulation, drilling and completions, steam-injection operational excellence, and heavy-oil strategic technology portfolio.

Our subject matter experts (SMEs) begin by sharing insight on general best practices for surface and subsurface operations with the client. Next, SMEs conduct a customized technical presentation to identify key concerns and opportunities. Finally, Solomon and the client meet to integrate findings and recommendations. Technical management and staff are included in these meetings. Input from all parties ensures a consensus on the final plan to optimize steam injection.

Solomon has utilized its extensive data and expertise to assess operational performance and provide advisory services in


heavy-oil-producing countries.
