What you can expect from a Calsep project?
That you engage with a team of PVT consultants with a wide variety of industry experience including reservoir engineering, PVT laboratories and research in phase behavior. Calsep’s consultants are responsive and professional and will deliver quick results for an immediate need or provide ongoing support, modeling work, and training for longer projects. You will get timely and reliable results provided in a detailed report. In the final stage of the project, a knowledge transfer session is conducted with a presentation of the work.
We do our best to ensure transparency and traceability in our work so our clients can feel confident in project results.
