An oil reservoir engineering firm based in Aberdeen has signed a partnership with an American company to strengthen its services to clients in the global oil and gas industry.

Oilgen, which has offices in Aberdeen and America, has established a co-working agreement with US-based, Expert Energy Solutions LLC (EES) to share knowledge and resources in the field of enhanced oil recovery.

Oilgen, which is led by managing director Laurent Schirrer, designs 3D reservoir models to rejuvenate oil fields and optimise further development uses market-leading software, which allows its advisors to identify deals and evaluate reserves before compiling a report on behalf of clients.

The specialist company recently launched Oilgen USA LLC to help petroleum companies acquire the best onshore oil and gas assets in America. Advisors work to identify deals and evaluate reserves in America on behalf of the client. This division is also a provider of unconventional and conventional reservoir simulation services. The company is currently also working on projects in the North Sea, France, Egypt, West Africa and Holland.

EES, based in Denver, Colorado – and led by Charles Thomas, an expert in oil recovery with more than 45 years experience in the industry – offers reservoir engineering consultancy with a focus on EOR technology applications including CO2, polymer, surfactant/polymer, and low-salinity water injection.

Charles Thomas, Managing Director, Expert Energy Solutions, said: “This is an exciting opportunity for both companies to benefit from each other’s wealth of experience and expertise. We are delighted to be making this first step into the European sector and look forward to helping Oilgen build its brand in America.”
