Geology Geophysics & Petroleum Engineering


RPS offers a wide range of geology, geophysics and petroleum engineering expertise to support the work of energy producers.


We have the experience and capability to provide services at any point in the asset lifecycle, from exploration through appraisal to production and de-commissioning.

Our geoscientists include geophysicists, geologists and specialists in the technical disciplines of petrophysics, sedimentology and biostratigraphy.

This expertise can be delivered either by an individual specialist or by an integrated team, and provides our clients with a level of support for both integrated and specialist projects that is second to none.

Many of our staff have worked within operating oil and gas companies and have the technical and commercial overview to ensure that projects are properly resourced and deliverables provided on time.

Our petroleum engineers work closely with our geologists and geophysicists in integrated teams to develop an understanding of the reservoir and ensure that maximum information is extracted from all sub-surface data.

We have expertise in, and access to, most industry standard interpretation and modelling software tools.

RPS Energy experts can assist with:

2D and 3D seismic interpretation

Integrated geological and geophysical basin studies

Stratigraphic and structural studies

Geochemistry and thermal history reconstruction

Basin modelling (regional correlations and sedimentological models, reservoir analogues, sand-body geometry, input into determination of flow units, integration with seismic and petrophysics for prospect evaluation)

Prospect mapping and evaluation

Petrophysics – integration of core samples and well log data, structural analysis and modelling (structural interpretation of seismic data, cross-section restoration, structural history analysis, fault-seal analysis)

Static reservoir modelling – integration of seismic data, reservoir data, fluid data and well data to build reservoir models suitable for simulation using third party software

Dynamic reservoir modelling – numerical simulation of oil and gas reservoirs using proprietary and third party software

Well test analysis – pressure transient analysis of oil and gas wells using third party software

Evaluation of unconventional gas resources including coal seam gas, tight gas reservoirs and shale gas

Regional geohazard assessment

Asset valuations
