MERLIN+ provides a unique combination of palaeogeography, palaeo-Earth systems and predictive models designed to reduce exploration risk. The identification of viable new exploration opportunities is becoming progressively more difficult and to be ahead of the pack innovative methods are required; MERLIN+ is designed to provide these innovations.
The Robertson MERLIN Project (2007) focused on the prediction of unknown source facies. It involved a major investment over a 10 year period. In 2012 the original data and methodologies were brought together with new time slice datasets and revised predictive capabilities to form the basis of a new project: MERLIN+.
The goal of MERLIN+ is to reduce exploration risk in under-explored and frontier basins through the prediction of source and reservoir facies. Global subscribers will gain competitive advantage from the use of these innovations and will benefit directly from the initial investment and Robertson intellectual property.
MERLIN+ is based on proven methodologies that have enabled the prediction of source facies globally. Comparison of the MERLIN predictions to known source rock data shows a greater than 80% accuracy, giving confidence to the prediction of source facies for both conventional and unconventional plays. MERLIN+ provides participants with a unique, innovative, data constrained solution that delivers genuine commercial advantage in seeking investment opportunities in under-explored basins.
Plate WizardTM plate reconstructions are used to form the base maps for MERLIN+ palaeogeographic mapping. Plate Wizard™ includes a unique deformable plates capability that has a direct effect on the accuracy of the palaeogeographic maps produced. Plate Wizard™ is compiled from Robertson's in-house structural database, a vast library of non-proprietary reports and literature from the public domain.
Because Plate Wizard™ is a key aspect of the project a company-wide, multi-seat Plate Wizard™ licence is included for all global subscribers.
MERLIN+ includes 18 initial time slice datasets and will be completed in a number of phases initially over a 4 year period.
Year 1 (Deliverables available now) - Global data constrained palaeogeography for 6 time slices, underpinned by over 10,000 data points.
Years 2 - 4 - Full suite of deliverables for 4 additional time slices and continued project development, including sensitivity tests and alternative models.
