The Reservoir Characterization Project
RCP is an industry-funded geophysical research consortium dedicated to the study of integrated reservoir characterization. RCP’s unique model emphasizes a multidisciplinary, collaborative team approach for practical research and preparation of graduate students. Working closely with industry sponsors, RCP explores new methods and technologies to gain improvements in reservoir performance prediction and optimization.
Phase XVII Research
Research starts July 1, 2017 on a new project titled, The Eagle Ford Stimulation Monitor Project, provided by field operator Devon Energy. The program utilizes time-lapse reservoir characterization methods using a wide range of data in an integrated study to develop a strategic plan for life of field production.
Welcome from Dr. Ali Tura, RCP Director
"The unconventional resources challenge can only be solved by integrated work and new technology. The more diverse information we gather, the better we can understand the subsurface. Even a slight change in drilling or completion practices as a result of this wll significantly impact the bottom line."
