High Risk/High Reward

Tremendous

Tremendous Up-front Capital Costs

Early information of oil properties can help to avoid:

Drilling of marginal prospects
Over-design of production facilities
Costly shut-ins during production

Significant Challenges for Production

Early Prediction

Early prediction of fluid chemistry and physical properties can be essential for management of risk and costs in deepwater fields
Critical information can be obtained prior to drilling
Avoid drilling marginal prospects
Design production facilities to reduce the risk of flow assurance problems
Minimize the occurences of expensive shut-ins once production begins
