Oil and gas reserves estimation

Energy companies, financial institutions, investors, royalty interest owners, taxing authorities, and estates and trusts have utilized FGA reserve estimates and value the successful record of accomplishment and experience represented by the staff.

Fair market value analyses

Preparation of evaluation and fair market value reports require accurate forecasts of time-rated production, product prices, capital investments, and operating costs associated with a project.

Gas deliverability projects

Gas and gas-condensate reservoirs are studied to determine the future deliverability at well and field levels. Calculations are based on fluid and rock properties, reservoir pressure, production tests, and buildup and drawdown pressure transient analyses.



Independent opinions of the value, and the potential value, of oil and gas interests have become a fundamental element for public investment in the oil and gas industry.

Feasibility studies

The feasibility for various methods of extracting hydrocarbon and other fuels and the installation of plants, gathering systems, and facilities have been elements of past assignments.

Well and Field Development studies

FGA engineers can determine the proper process, time and procedure to apply to a reservoir. FGA can continue to support a project by monitoring and updating the analyses as required.
