Sigra deal with matters concerning the Earth. We are equally comfortable servicing:
- the mining industry,
- the petroleum industry,
- civil engineering earth and rock construction, and
Our capabilities in ground fluids serves all these industries. For example we can take advantage of the petroleum reservoir transient well testing solutions but also understand the complexities of infiltration and can use these to advantage in groundwater studies.
Likewise, our knowledge of the geomechanical properties of rocks and soils means that we are familiar with the concepts of poroelasticity and effective stress. We have used this knowledge to the benefit of projects in slope stability, outbursts in coal mines and the behaviour of tight reservoirs.
Sigra’s cross-disciplinary expertise is a benefit to all of our clients who deal with structures in the ground.
