Water Geochemistry for the Oil Industry

Dr. Kristie S. McLin
Manager of Fluid Characterization Team


Water geochemistry is a well utilized tool for reservoir characterization and diagnostics in numerous industries, including hydrology, environmental, mining, and geothermal. The oil industry is no exception, and water chemistry is often the bridge between the geoscience (what’s in the ground) and operations (how we access the reservoir). In this presentation, we will review the ways water chemistry can be utilized across a broad spectrum of applications in exploration and production and how to better communicate on things that matter to engineering colleagues. We will also look to applications that still need to be developed to better understand our subsurface. Questions and discussion during the presentation are strongly encouraged.
