Welcome to Reservoir Quantification Laboratories
The Reservoir Quantification Laboratory(RQL) was established in 2005 by Fred Hilterman and Gennady Goloshubin. Initial support came from a Department of Energy Project and oil industry sponsorship. On Fred's retirement in 2008, Christopher Liner became Director and John Castagna joined as co-PI.
The RQL mission is to develop new and novel techniques for recognizing potential hydrocarbon reservoirs and then predicting the composition of the reservoir (characterization).
With a better quantitative understanding of the physical processes that effect the transmission and reflection of seismic amplitude, a more accurate characterization of the porosity, permeability, fluid saturation, thickness, etc. for the various compartments of a reservoir will follow.
