The Encontrado JumpStart™ is a fully integrated geoscience package, consisting of upgraded well data and geological information, tied to the 38,000km² of merged and reprocessed seismic data from nine existing surveys. It includes a full review, QC and enhancement of all relevant geological information from a suite of key wells within the survey area, revised and consistent formation tops data and a regional interpretation of a series of key stratigraphic horizons and the petroleum system as a whole. The QC'd and enhanced data are provided in industry standard formats, are analytics-ready and, combined with the seismic data, provide the data set required to evaluate prospectivity and opportunities within this emerging frontier.
The aim of the JumpStart package is to create a consistent, high-quality geoscience data set to complement the associated seismic data, allowing users to get to decision points more quickly and spend time interpreting data rather than wrangling data. The JumpStart packages deliver QC’d and consistent data sets to address the key petroleum systems questions that control prospectivity, focusing on the source, the reservoir, the charge, the trap and the migration paths. All the available well data has been re-interpreted and upgraded, removing inconsistencies that may be present in the existing well interpretation, to create a consistent chrono- and lithostratigraphic scheme across the whole basin and tying it to the reprocessed seismic.
This new data set was constructed as part of a fully integrated workflow, ensuring that each discipline benefited from data and understanding derived from complementary disciplines. Stratigraphic interpretation has been supported by detailed understanding of the depositional context, tops make use of a full and consistent re-interpretation of all available biostratigraphic data, and are in-turn used to constrain the petrophysics. This consistency feeds through to the 3D horizons that are used to flatten the seismic volume in the geological time domain, to enable lateral seismic facies variations along a constant depositional surface to be mapped. These provide valuable information about potential reservoir and source rock distribution. In the Encontrado program the stratal slices capture densely-distributed, high-sinuosity deepwater channels at unprecedented resolution.
All available data for each geological discipline have been fully QC’d, reviewed and enhanced to provide a unified data set for subsequent interpretation and de-risking of opportunities.
