Hydrogeology

Oil and gas environmental and operational services includes the evaluation and permitting of deep-injection water-disposal wells, the geochemical fingerprinting of hydrocarbon sources, and the assessment of potential water-quality changes associated with road traffic/maintenance, drilling, and hydraulic fracturing operations.

Services include:

  • Evaluation and permitting of deep-injection disposal wells
  • Assessment of potential water-quality changes associated with road traffic/maintenance, drilling, and hydraulic fracturing operations
  • Groundwater flow and chemical transport modeling, as well as multi-phase modeling (movement of separate-phase hydrocarbons in groundwater systems)
  • Unsaturated chemical transport modeling
  • Characterization of coal-bed methane discharge waters and prediction of impacts to soil and water resources
  • Reservoir-scale, wellbore-scale, and reservoir-fracturing analyses
  • Hydrocarbon source fingerprinting
  • Impacts of hydraulic fracturing on water quality
  • Expert witness, second opinion, and litigation support
