Major Projects
Gross has carried out evaluations for naturally fractured fields, as well as fields with several forms of secondary and tertiary recovery ranging from standard waterflood patterns to analysis of several active firefloods.

Gross has carried out evaluations for over a dozen fields in Kurdistan, from small single-well discoveries to the largest producers in the region. Productive reservoirs evaluated include Jurassic and Cretaceous fractured carbonates as well as sandstones and shallower gas horizons. Fluids encountered varied from dry gas to dead, heavy oils, and enhanced recovery methods were also evaluated.

Gross has carried out evaluations for more than 80 fields in Romania, from small single-well discoveries to large producers with nearly a century of production. Additionally, Gross assisted with cushion gas reserves evaluations of gas storage fields in Romania.
