About CURISTEC

As a privately owned and independent group, Curis International merges the activities of several companies, (CURISTEC, CurisIT) with its industry recognized engineering and consulting services.

CURISTEC is an industry leading technology company, specializing in oil and gas geomechanics, wellbore integrity, cement integrity, engineering software and consulting services. With people in France, Vietnam, Americas, and Abu Dhabi, CURISTEC is globally positioned to deliver solutions based on an integration of the science, engineering and field experience for your projects. The quality of the service is the same independently from where it is provided.

CURISTEC offers engineering Services: in cement integrity (CurisIntegrity Services), in geomechanics (CurisGeomec Services), in Project Consulting and Training in geo-sciences and well cementing.

CURISTEC performs full materials testing and R&D laboratory through its brand CurisLab. With locations in Pau, France, CurisLab performs cementing, formation, rock, drilling and stimulation fluids testing according to API/ISO methods and maintains an ISO 9001 certification.

CurisCotta is the association between Curis International and TerraCotta (a Middle East company). CurisCotta combines Curis International’s sciences, technologies, and services with TerraCotta’s highly experienced residential engineers to create fit for challenge solutions for its customers.

CurisIT, CURISTEC's sister company, creates leading edge, user-friendly software applications based on the latest sciences and technologies. With offices in Spain and China, and access to CURISTEC’s engineers and consultants, CurisIT is ideally positioned to substantially reduce your software development time and enhance the usability of your software.

Services

We are what we repeatedly do.
Excellence, therefore, is not an act, but a habit.

CURISTEC’s engineers, scientists and consultants develop industry leading cementing, well integrity and reservoir management solutions by integrating the latest sciences, technologies, and experience. Our engineers and consultants work with well operators and service providers to reduce the cost and risk of well construction, enhance zonal isolation for the life of the well, and reduce the time required for reservoir harvesting. CURISTEC consulting services is staffed with industry recognized subject matter experts in the areas of geo-sciences and oil well cementing. Having worked for operators and services companies, our consultants have extensive technical, operational and management experiences

Our Software

Full description

CurisIntegrity

CurisIntegrity software evaluates the risk of losing cement sheath/plug integrity during the life of a well. CurisIntegrity models are based on over 10 years of R&D and validated by recognized industry publications and extensive laboratory testing.

  • CurisIntegrity Quicklook is a cost-efficient computation module that provides a risk analysis and anwser the question: does a conventional cement system ensure integrity in my zone of interest;
  • CurisIntegrity Screening is an extended version of CI Quicklook, with screening of one conventional and two types of advanced cement systems;
  • CurisIntegrity Expert is the key tool for cement sheath/plug design: it computes the risk of losing cement sheath/plug integrity during the life of a well and computes the safe range of cement propertes;
  • CurisIntegrity Numerical is a FEA model for all types of wells (with salt, low casing standoff...);
  • CurisIntegrity Cement plug computes the risk of opening a micro-annulus around a cement plug during a pressure test and the associated leakage risk.

CurisData

CurisData

CurisData helps you to efficiently and effectively manage your cement laboratory(s). Obtain and maintain your quality management compliance qualification as outlined in either ISO 9001 or API Q2:

  • Reduce the time and cost associated with redundant or re-work testing;
  • Data capture, data mining
  • Chemical inventory
  • Equipment calibration / maintenance scheduling
  • Staff training and certifications, quality processes
  • Report generation

Research and Development

Technology is the core value of CURISTEC.

Our R&D relies on more than 40 years of experience in the geomechanics and in cementing. We have combined in our tools our experience and the industry’s demands to deliver affordable and reliable Services and Software. We deploy a technology that is recognized wordlwide (see our Publications) and secured with patents.

We keep on sharping our knowlegde with the latest sciences and publications. This allows us to develop the appropriate models and technologies to meet customer’s needs in the most difficult study cases. For instance, we developed a model that simulates over 80 years the damage of a cement sheath and a casing in a compacting field.
