UDSS provides consulting services, specialized human capital resources, and technology solutions that support the life-cycle phases and activities of E & P assets in the hydrocarbon sector.

Today’s hydrocarbon environment requires in depth knowledge and expertise. Innovation, leading-edge technologies and strongly integrated practices are required in order to increase production, reserves, and improve operational efficiency across the various disciplines involved in the reservoir management cycles, from exploration to production.

An integrated business approach  that includes people, process and technology is necessary to break the barriers between the various reservoir management cycles – operations – production optimization and field management, and to facilitate the maturity of information into knowledge. Engineering processes related to each reservoir management cycle need to be accelerated by the implementation of automated/ interactive workflows. Integrating various levels of field data frequency with petro-technical processes can help in operational efficiency, leaving more time for a more proactive engineering analysis of problems and solutions. A successful workflow approach ensures that the hydrocarbon’s decline curve is mitigated with higher ultimate recovery. Additionally, the integration of data with numerical and analytical reservoir and well models, through workflows, helps to bring more efficiency in the field planning cycle in order to establish proper Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) or in-fill drilling plans to increase recovery factors.
