About CURISTEC

Globally, the reduction of greenhouse gases has transitioned from a simple groundswell into one of tsunamic proportion. The Earth still contains a tremendous amount of energy to be harvested. To produce it, we must be leaders in Green Energy production, i.e., we must produce the Earth’s energy with zero pollution and zero greenhouse gas emission, at the lowest cost possible.

CURISTEC is helping its clients to reach this goal by developing innovative, transverse technological solutions focused on increasing efficiency and lowering cost. CURISTEC’s solutions are based on an integration of its extensive technical and operational experience.

Our Geomechanics and Cementing scientists and engineers help you construct wellbores with the lowest risk and total cost.

Our CurisLab facility provides conventional, advanced, and project specific laboratory testing services.

Our CurisIntegrity simulating platform helps you reduce the complexity of cement integrity modeling and design cement systems.

Our CurisData Well Information Management System (WIMS) provides a seamless communication and data capture tool to reduced non-productive time and cost.

Our R&D projects focus on solutions for your project specific challenges when existing technologies and products are not available.

Integrated Solutions

CURISTEC’s solutions are based on an integration of its extensive technical and operational experience in the fields of well cementing, well integrity, and geomechanics. CURISTEC can provide laboratory testing and consulting services, and uses its R&D to develop testing equipment and software applications.

CURISTEC’s R&D focus on delivering new technical solutions to solve your project specific challenges when existing technologies and products are not available. CURISTEC’s solutions are based on its extensive operational experience with the latest knowledge in terms of modeling, material sciences, testing, and equipment manufacturing. With CURISTEC, you move from academic R&D to a goal-driven R&D.




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

CURISTEC’s cementing engineers and consultants develop industry leading cementing solutions by integrating the latest sciences, technologies, and experience. Our cementing engineers and consultants work with operators and cementing service providers to:

  • Lead cementing studies and cement laboratory testing
  • Identify well events that may prevent achieving complete zonal isolation
  • Perform cement integrity modeling to predict the risk of cement sheath failure
  • Select the cement mechanical properties targets to prevent cement sheath damage
  • Conduct field and project cement integrity diagnostic studies
  • Design and lead cement integrity research and development projects

CurisLab

CurisLab

Through its registered trademark CurisLab, CURISTEC works with operators and service providers to deliver laboratory testing services to support their projects. CurisLab is a full function materials testing and R&D laboratory 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. CurisLab engineers have extensive experiences in research, field operations, laboratory testing, data analysis, and provide laboratory training and audits.

 
 

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 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.
