Gas production and gas storage

Our services include the construction, operation, and decommissioning of underground storage facilities (UGS) as well as the exploration, development, and enhancing recovery of gas and oil reservoirs.

Comprehensive services from a single source

  • Planning, design, tendering, construction, commissioning, and operational support of UGS in depleted gas and oil reservoirs, aquifers, caverns, and oil/gas fields
  • Geological exploration and creation of reservoir models including laboratory analyses of geological, petrophysical, and reservoir properties
  • Field development
  • Site supervision
  • Support with procurement procedures
  • Monitoring and operation optimization
Creation of reservoir models and reservoir simulation

Underground gas storage

We provide engineering services for the construction and optimization of cavern and pore storage facilities.

  • Determination of effective storage pressures
