Can we help you understand your petroleum systems better?

As every petroleum engineer and geoscientist knows, for petroleum to exist in the subsurface, there must have been a Trap, Reservoir, Charge, and Seal. If one of these elements is absent, there cannot be a viable hydrocarbon reservoir. Furthermore, the timings need to work - the reservoir must exist to receive the hydrocarbons at the time the hydrocarbons are looking for a reservoir.

When we don’t find hydrocarbons where we were expecting to find them, a frequent occurrence in our industry, a common reason is that there was a problem with the petroleum system – or we were working with an incorrect petroleum system model.

PetroMall staff have specialist experience in many sedimentary basins around the world and our expertise includes:

  • General petroleum geology and basin analysis

  • Petroleum systems analysis

  • Thermochronology and thermal history modelling

  • Reservoir and source rock characterisation

  • Oil and gas geochemistry

  • Geophysics and petrophysics

  • Provenance Studies

  • Reserves and resources

  • Basin Studies


Understanding petroleum systems is difficult, time consuming, thoughtful work - and perhaps hard to do in the high pressure environment of a modern production company. PetroMall's consultants can take more time to understand what is going on and share their insights with you. We can also help organisations make better use of available software tools to better understand petroleum systems, identify risks and help build strategies to manage them.


PetroMall is an energy consultancy dedicated to ensuring the supply of natural resources required is undertaken in a responsible and professional manner across different countries, improving the economics of prospective and existing projects.
