In a fast-evolving, data-driven world, access to to high quality large datasets has never been more important.

RealWellData is the Geoprovider productline of high quality digitised well data delivered in a Petrel-ready format that can easily be used in any exploration workflow, geomodel or as part of a machine learning project.

Datasets include an ever-expanding selection of geoscience data driven by our clients’ needs and includes mudgas and hydrocarbon analysis, porepressure and geomechanics, scanned and depth referenced completion logs, temperature, core plug data, core images and core interpretation.

Your prospect is a winner!



GeoProvider’s most popular product is our Advanced Mud-Gas Analyses. The analyses are done on a well by well basis either as in-depth evaluations to highlight a specific challenge or covering a regional area to map out migration pathways, sealing formations, and hydrocarbon potential.

Mud-gas data is acquired on-board drill rigs and recorded using a gas chromatograph. The gas chromatograph has become very exact over the past 50 years and the principles behind it have stayed the same, meaning that you can correlate and compare your well data across decades of exploration.

GeoProvider have compiled and tested methods and techniques from all over the world and calibrated them against data in the UK, Denmark and Norway. The range of ratios and techniques combine classical methods from the North Sea with newer, sophisticated ways of evaluating the hydrocarbon potential in wells, confirming shows identified from fluorescence, staining, gas spikes and sampling. These methods allow typing of the hydrocarbon fluid properties (phase, API, GOR) and identification of barriers to flow and compartmentalization.



Quickly compare logs to each other, to correlate seismic and CPI data.

RealRock is a digital archive of all publicly available core photos on the Norwegian continental shelf with close to 100 000 images and the database is still growing. The depth annotated standardised cropped core images are delivered as Petrel projects for the North, Norwegian and the Barents Sea. Digital images of cores are essential to asses reservoir quality (N/G), depositional environments and detailed sedimentology like bedforms, ichnology and facies.



True formation temperatures are important because temperature affects many key parameters for petroleum geology such as water resistivity, to calculate oil saturation from resistivity logs, fluid formation volume factors, needed for petroleum reserve estimates, and geothermal gradients, needed to estimate temperatures and pressures in undrilled zones. In addition, accurate temperature measurements from boreholes can be used to calibrate basin and petroleum system models. The temperature calibration can have a major impact on the calculated timing, depth, and yield of petroleum from source rocks in these models.

RealTemp is a collection of all available temperature data from exploration wells to help identify true formation temperatures and predict regional geothermal trends. The databases consist of temperature data from drill stem and production tests, maximum temperatures from wireline logging runs, temperature data from wireline pressure pretests and fluid sampling runs as well as reported temperatures. Temperatures measured during logging operations are lower than the undisturbed true temperature data and parameters necessary to perform temperature corrections are included in the database (time since circulation, circulation time). Horner-type and single-point corrections are applied.

The temperature datasets are prepared for basin modelling, reservoir quality evaluation and temperature trends. Petro-Mod and Trinity ready Genesis well projects are available for quick turnaround of your basin models together with 1D temperature and maturity modelling of wells using ZetaWare Genesis.



RealCompLog is a digital archive of all publicly available completion logs on the Norwegian continental shelf. The completion log images are cut and renamed with fitting depths and loaded into Petrel projects for North, Norwegian and Barents Sea. Digital images of completion logs are used for facies interpretation. Compare and correlate logs and core images.



A full wellbore pressure and geomechanics evaluation has historically been reserved for the most demanding wells. However, the value of such analysis in terms of understanding the subsurface and drilling optimisation goes well beyond drilling successful wells.
Based on Geoprovider’s proprietary workflows and Matlab analysis we analyse offset wells including old analogue wells, log data and drilling mechanics (Torque, WOB, ROP). This allows for an exact estimation of pressure, stress and wellbore stability using several independent methods calibrated against real data. All this is delivered as a comprehensive report and Petrel-ready project or any other industry database format. Our semi-regional data and analysis can be applied by explorationists, basin modellers and reservoir engineers in regional and license work for overpressure estimation, pressure barier identi cation, depth to overpressure, depth to HPHT, PVT modelling and much more.

A pre-drill analysis of offset wells allows license geologists, operations geologists and drilling engineers to safely and effectively plan exploration and appraisal wells



Having a complete database of rock properties at your fingertips without having to trawl through old reports and struggling with strange data formats is any geoscientist’s dream. Geoprovider has compiled and digitised all available core plug data from the Norwegian continental shelf reformatted and exported as standardized LAS files and available as a Petrel project. Our analysis can be applied by explorationist, reservoir and drilling engineers from prospecting to drilling in infill wells. A key application is a high end pre-drill offset well analysis to assure smooth drilling conditions. RealPore is the most comprehensive digital database of core data on the Norwegian continental shelf.
