Challenging Plays

Many resources lay hidden within complex geologies. Salt and basalt frustrate traditional survey techniques. Fractures can aid flow or obstruct it. Geological expertise can predict the nature of the play. Innovative techniques for surveying, processing and interpreting data reveal the detail.

Fractures

Understanding Fractured Plays

Fractures control production in naturally fractured reservoirs. Characterize them to determine the best development strategies. Fractures in the overburden distort the view. Compensate for that with the latest seismic techniques. Fractures affect shale production. Understand the effect of rock properties and stresses for better completions.

Resolving Complex Reservoirs

There are no more easy plays. Turbidite channels, sand injectites, tight oil, sub-salt, sub-basalt all challenge traditional survey methods and analysis. To visualize today’s plays, ingenuity is required. Better illumination, specialty processing and sophisticated reservoir characterization all play a role.

Subsalt

Exploring Subsalt Plays

Subsalt hydrocarbons remain technically challenging and high-risk, especially in deep water. Drilling through this high-pressure, unstable geology is hazardous without better information. Now, with full-azimuth seismic, low-frequency recording and gravity data, a 3D view of the salt structure is possible.
