In 2017, GEOLOG celebrates the 35th anniversary of its groundbreaking history. Founded in 1982 in Italy to provide mud logging services, over the past years GEOLOG has been able to develop its innovative solutions and technological patents into commercial products and services, thereby significantly growing the client base across not only International Oil Companies but also across National Oil Companies worldwide. Many more anniversaries to come!
“The advanced gas service provided by GEOLOG has proven definitely to add values to the Asset Team to narrow down uncertainties in fluid interpretation related to complexity and heterogeneity. The integration with real-time mudlogging and LWD data is helping minimize the need for wireline fluid sampling with the consequent reduction of the costs involved.”
Geological & Geophysical Manager, Chevron

GEOLOG has just presented at the International Petroleum Technology Conference (IPTC) in Bangkok - Thailand, “Deep-Spectrum Gas Chromatography & Carbon Isotopes Analysis While Drilling Enhance Value of Real-Time Formation Evaluation, Reducing Interpretation Uncertainty”. This paper highlights improvements in surface logging technology allowing real-time quantitative analyses. It references case studies describing direct comparisons with PVT data, identifying hydrocarbons of different sources and maturities to evaluate migration pathways and source provenance.
GEOLOG collaborated with Repsol in an initiative to improve the health of personnel working on Huacaya-2ST project, Bolivia. In order to promote the practice of sport, GEOLOG supported this initiative with the donation of mountain bikes and bike helmets, giving the opportunity to the workers to make exercises.
Recently in China, GEOLOG was given an award by Shell for excellent performance during the Yinggehai project. This offshore contract combined GeoPressure, real-time pore pressure evaluation and mudlogging services, delivered in conjunction with our strategic alliance partner Quad Operations and Shengli.
In keeping with tradition, GEOLOG will exhibit at OMC - Offshore Mediterranean Conference & Exhibition, held from 29 to 31 March 2017 in Ravenna, Italy. We will be pleased to meet you at Hall 2, Booth #A4 to showcase GEOLOG’s latest advances in integrated rock and fluid characterization. We will also present case studies where GEOLOG helped operators achieve substantial cost savings by optimizing and replacing expensive downhole measurements with real time surface solutions.
GEOLOG recently presented a paper in conjunction with Southwestern Energy at the Unconventional Resources Technology Conference (URTeC) in San Antonio, Texas, titled “Cost-Effective Reservoir Characterization from Advanced Surface Logging Technologies in Unconventional Reservoirs”. This paper highlights the use of advanced mud gas and real time isotopic analysis, alkene hydrocarbon identification, elemental analyses and micro-loss measurements as cost effective ways to evaluate reservoir characteristics (organic and inorganic content and fracture confirmation) while drilling and aid in well-placement.
GEOLOG is participating in the SPE Annual Technical Conference and Exhibition, taking place from 26 to 28 September at the Dubai World Trade Centre, a world-class convention venue located in the heart of this vibrant city. Visit us at booth #5161 and find out our added value services for saving time and interpreting data at best costs, solutions to optimize clients’ budgets and bring meaningful surface logged data to the attention of the reservoir and drilling teams.
GEOLOG and Kuwait Oil Company jointly presented the paper “The Application of Well Site Isotopic Analysis for Reservoir Evaluation” (#1533) at the SPWLA Symposium (June 2016). This paper documents for the very first time in the oil industry the successful measurement and utilization of carbon isotopic data from C1, C2 and C3 while drilling in real time, to characterize an oil reservoir.
The scope was to characterize the reservoir fluids and the source rock fluids in terms of maturity, and identify any vertical or horizontal variations across the basin. The successful evaluation of the reservoir was based on a novel technology which permitted extending the range of carbon isotopic analysis beyond methane, to light hydrocarbons such as ethane and propane. This technology advancement has broadened the analysis done while-drilling and generated an isotopic data density much superior to what can be obtained in the laboratory.
As customary for GEOLOG, we will present one of our recent published technical papers at the yearly SPWLA Symposium - this year held in Reykjavik, Iceland, on June 25-29.
Together with our co-authors, Kuwait Oil Company (KOC), a paper on carbon isotopes detection from mud gas will be presented by GEOLOG. Such work is the result of the ongoing and fruitful partnership between GEOLOG and KOC spanning nearly 10 years.
GEOLOG and QUAD enter into Strategic Partnership Alliance to leverage each other’s respective expertise in providing fully integrated wellsite and drilling services.
