Exploration & Appraisal



Production rates can be highly variable across shale plays, so adopting an approach that incorporates a more thorough understanding of the reservoir and being able to zoom in on the most lucrative opportunities is key. Building a robust geological framework which integrates all the relevant data will allow you to high-grade prospects and acreage, identify hazards and mitigate risk through the exploration & appraisal cycle.


We use all the legacy geological & geophysical information available to aid the design of a reservoir-oriented survey that will yield high-quality data customized to the requirements of your shale acreage. With advanced planning, we can acquire the optimum data for reservoir characterization and ‘sweet spot’ identification.
