Itasca's engineers leverage their knowledge and expertise to provide optimized designs and recommendations for field operations. They use physics- and field-data-based models to understand the complex nonlinear behaviors of geological materials in oil and gas reservoirs. Such models are used to aid design and to anticipate problems during reservoir stimulation and extraction of oil and gas in complex environments. Geomechanical, hydraulic, and thermal phenomena are considered, as well as the complexity rock lithology and structures, including faults and fracture network. Itasca’s conventional oil and gas services include:

  • Borehole breakout and banding
  • Flow in fractured rock
  • Induced seismicity
  • Wellbore drilling and stability
  • Drilling and well equipment
  • Sand production analysis
  • Enhanced oil recovery
  • Water-quality impacts
  • Compaction and subsidence
  • Reservoir-scale geomechanical modeling
  • Salt cavern formation, stability, and fuel storage
  • Short- and long-term gas storage in caverns
  • Fault stability, movement, and integrity
  • Water and soil quality impacts
  • Deep-well injection of produced waters
  • Dynamic/seismic analysis
