The oil and gas industry loses billions of dollars every year due to the problems arising from caprock failure, wellbore instability, reservoir subsidence, solid production, and so on. Moreover, the environmental impact caused by the above factors could damage a company's reputation and diminish its safety record. In ARG, we provide state-of-the-art geomechanical services to create greater understanding of subsurface geomechanics and minimize the risks above. Improved geomechanical understanding could also introduce improved operation techniques resulting in enhanced production. Our geomechanics specialists work as part of project teams that may also include geologists, geophysicists, petrophysicists, as well as reservoir and production engineers.

Why work with ARG?
With geomechanics becoming a key factor in many functions of hydrocarbon recovery or waste disposal, it is now considered a discipline by itself and most companies are establishing their own teams of geomechanics. Due to diversity of reservoir geomechanical applications, building a team of geomechanics experts in all geomechanical areas is a daunting task. Moreover, efficient management of the team due to distribution of the tasks from different departments and fluctuating workload may not be straightforward. In ARG, our goal is to provide the functionality of an in-house geomechanical team for our clients without the difficulties and commitment of an actual in-house team. Unlike other reservoir-geomechanical service providers that are limited to certain software or resources, we deliver a flexible and customizable selection of resources tailored to each project's specific needs. We are confident this approach results in high quality, high speed, and cost effective results.
