The precursor MERLIN Project (2007) focussed 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: Robertson Predictions.
The goal of Robertson Predictions is to reduce exploration risk in under-explored and frontier basins through the prediction of source and reservoir facies. Subscribers gain competitive advantage from the use of these innovations and benefit directly from the initial investment and Robertson intellectual property.
Robertson Predictions is based on proven methodologies that have enabled the prediction of source facies globally. Comparison of the marine source facies 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. Robertson Predictions provides participants with a unique, innovative, data constrained solution that delivers genuine commercial advantage in seeking investment opportunities in under-explored basins.
Robertson Plate Kinematics plate reconstructions are used to form the base maps for Robertson Predictions paleogeographic mapping. Plate Kinematics includes a unique deformable plates capability that has a direct effect on the accuracy of the paleogeographic maps produced. Plate Kinematics is compiled from Robertson's in-house structural database, a vast library of non-proprietary reports and literature from the public domain.
Predictions includes 18 time slice datasets:
Geological mapping and interpretation of remote sensing data, from regional projects to detailed interpretation of licence blocks.
