Structural Geology

Kurdistan structural study

Structural Geology is a vital part of our geoscience offering. Our capabilities extend to remote sensing and potential fields analysis, and plate tectonic modelling. All scales are covered, from thin section/SEM analysis of tiny microfractures through to global plate tectonic rebuilds. Our structural geologists can boast vast experience in the field, having worked in some of the most challenging and remote regions of the world. We also have extensive office-based expertise in integrated basin studies, and in the analysis/QC of input data for static modelling/seismic structural interpretations, using cutting-edge software.

From Region to Reservoir

By calling on the skills of our specialists in Sedimentology, Stratigraphy, Engineering and Geomechanics, we are able to offer a holistic, integrated approach to reservoir modelling, as well as regional-scale tectono-stratigraphy and kinematic history studies.

Key services include:

Structural cross sectionsGeological cross section restoration.
  • Geometrically consistent 2D and 3D seismic interpretation/QC
  • Structural geology interpretation/QC of automated fault extraction results
  • Interpretation of potential fields and remote sensing data, including satellite imagery
  • Plate tectonic modelling
  • Geological cross-section balancing/restoration
  • (Palaeo-) stress and strain analysis
  • Analysis of natural and induced fractures - fractured carbonate reservoirs, core logging, image log analysis
  • Fracture network prediction
  • In situ stress analysis
  • Fault seal and displacement analysis
  • Trap formation
  • Salt tectonics
  • Integration of structural and diagenetic history
  • Planning/implementation of fieldwork campaigns in frontier regions
