TGT Oilfield Services (TGT Oilfield Services) is an international oilfield service company specialising in production logging, hydrocarbon reservoir monitoring and geohydrodynamic modelling.[2] The company is headquartered in Dubai (UAE) and has regional offices in more than fifteen countries including United States, Canada, Russia, Kazakhstan, Nigeria, Malaysia, Great Britain, Indonesia, Oman, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia. In Russia, TGT has its Technology Centre in Kazan and other offices in Usinsk and at the Skolkovo Technopark in Moscow.

Company history[edit]

TGT Oil and Gas Services was founded in Kazan, Russia, in 1998 by A.M. Aslanyan and G.V. Vasilyev.[3] Many of the specialists who formed the company were students of N.N. Neprimerov, Professor of Physics at Kazan State University, who created his school of oil reservoir studies and engineering in the 1950s.

In 2003, the company’s headquarters and main activities were relocated from Kazan to Dubai (UAE).[4]

In 2011, TGT Oil and Gas Services underwent a financial and technical audit and joined the investment portfolio of Lime Rock Partners.[2][5]

In 2011, TGT Oil and Gas Services initiated a proposal to the TatNeft petroleum company to form a joint venture for oil redevelopment and generated a redevelopment project for the Bavly oilfield of Tatarstan. The company proposed pilot tests to be conducted using innovative oil recovery technologies in one of the oil areas operated by TatNeft.[6]

In 2014, the company presented its key technologies at the Open Innovations international forum.

In 2013, TGT Oil and Gas Services became an active member of the Smart City Kazan project and produced a plan to build an R & D Centre on an investment site in the project area. In 2013–2015, a research centre and a production park were to be built on an area of 5 ha to accommodate modern research laboratories, a hotel and production and storage facilities. The company also planned to participate in the creation of an educational cluster allowing students, graduates and young specialists to have practical training and study at the Park.[7][8][9][10] In 2015, all the plans were implemented at another location in the same city.[11]

As a result, the company built its own Technology Centre in 2015 in the Privolzhsky District of Kazan to accommodate 350 workplaces, with 100 of them in the company's manufacturing unit. The opening took place on 10 June 2015.

In 2016, President of the Republic of Tatarstan Rustam N. Minnikhanov paid a working visit to the Technology Centre.[12]

in Russia, TGT Oil and Gas Services has several subsidiaries in the form of limited liability companies: TGT Prime, MIKS and others.[2][13]

The company regularly participates in SPE's and other conferences, symposia and exhibitions held in New Orleans and Houston (USA) including CERA Week, organises the annual Winter School in Applied Modelling (WSAM)[14] held in Dubai since 2006, organises and sponsors the annual SMIT[15] Youth Scientific Conference on Mathematical Modelling and Information Technologies held in Kazan since 2009, and regularly participates in international exhibitions, workshops and symposia held in Moscow, Ufa, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Jakarta and other locations.[16]

Services and activities[edit]

The company's key technologies have been developed in-house and patented in Russia and other countries, and its research and development activities are carried out as resident projects at the Skolkovo Innovation Centre in Moscow and at the IT Park in Kazan.

TGT Oil and Gas Services specialises in integrated well logging and provides the following solutions:

  • Well integrity assessment for vertical and horizontal wells including those with two tubing strings
  • Behind-casing flow pattern analysis for injection and production wells
  • Formation pressure determination
  • Micro-grid hydrodynamic modelling using well log data for sidetracking, new drilling and production rate forecasting

TGT Oil and Gas Services has developed the following technologies:

  • Spectral Noise Logging (SNL)[17][18][19]
  • High Precision Temperature (HPT) logging [18][19]
  • Termosim thermohydrodynamic simulator, a software system that quatifies injection and production profiles at any time and point in a well and surrounding rocks under various well operating conditions
  • EmPulse, magnetic imaging defectoscopy (former MID) [20]
  • Integrated PLT technique
  • Memory pulsed neutron-neutron (PNN) logging [21]
  • LogViz software for well log data visualisation and analysis
