Stages of the Company’s development

  • 1989 - A group of feasibility study of investments in Russian oil industry is set up in the first Soviet-American Joint Venture "MD SEIS".
  • 1991 - MD SEIS Consulting is registered, and starts to receive orders from Russian and foreign companies for development of feasibility studies for setting up joint ventures. With the participation of MD SEIS Consulting on the basis of the Reservoir Engineering Department, NizhnevartovskNIPIneft Research and Design Institute, Nizhnevartovsk, CJSC "ENCONCO" is set up for engineering and design projects. Projects are performed for Nizhnevartovskneftegas, Megionneftegas, Varieganneftegaz Associations.
  • 1994 - CJSC "ENCONCO" and MD SEIS Consulting receive orders for engineering and design projects from major Russian and international oil companies, such as LUKOIL, Rosneft, Calgary Overseas, CONOCO, BRIDAS, SOCO, AGIP. The companies employ specialists from VNIIneft and VNIIOENG Research Institutes.
  • 1997 - CJSC "ENCONCO" is reregistered in Moscow as a private independent company. MD SEIS Consulting experts join CJSC "ENCONCO". The Company continues to grow successfully. ExxonMobil, SHELL, TNK, and other companies are among the Company’s clients.
  • 2000 - Geostream Services Group, an independent engineering and consulting group of companies, is set up on the basis of CJSC "ENCONCO"
  • 2005 - LLC "Geostream Services Group" becomes an integrated service company, with Geostream Drilling drilling company set up as part of the group. The company starts drilling at the CJSC Oil Company “Nobel Oil" field in the Republic of Komi.
  • 2008 - Key Energy Services Inc., a major US corporation with an annual turnover of about $2 billion and more than 150 branches specialized in well services, headquartered in Houston, Texas, becomes a shareholder of LLC "Geostream Services Group".
  • 2013 - Key Energy Services Inc. buys out 100% shares of LLC "Geostream Services Group." The company's management, as well as the team of CJSC "ENCONCO" leaves LLC "Geostream Services Group".
  • 2014 - LLC “Research and Design Institute of Oil and Gas-R” (LLC “NIPI-R”) commences to work. Along with JSC "ENCONCO" specialists the company employs LLC "Oil Services Group" specialists. ExxonMobil concludes a long-term service contract with the Company for "Sakhalin-1" project’s fields. OJSC "Sberbank of Russia" accredits LLC “NIPI-R” for feasibility assessments of investments in the oil and gas industry for their clients.

Development of Geoplat Pro-RS simulator


Geoplat Pro-RS - Geoplat Pro-RS is a parallel simulator with flexible architecture, which allows for entering new physical processes into algorithms as soon as possible.

The product has been developed since 2015 and now it is a computation core with implemented two-phase immiscible model, “BlackOil” three-phase model and the user’s pre- and post-processing as a part of Geoplat Pro-G. Functionality allows for performing a standard cycle of simulation from re-scaling and history-matching to modeling data analysis and technological assessment of oil and gas field development scenario.

One of the key product’s purposes is a consideration of any dependences in initial equations, followed by adjustment of simulator to unique flow conditions of any hydrocarbon field.
