Decarbonising Energy

Scientists tells us that any rise in global temperatures needs to be limited to less than two degrees over pre-industrial times. Displacing coal is the primary focus. Does gas provide a useful stepping stone to a decarbonised future?

Broadband Seismic Technology and Beyond PART X: IsoMetrix - Isometric Sampling

IsoMetrix is more than broadband seismic. It goes beyond, by reconstructing the deghosted wavefield in 3D, and performs fine spatial sampling in all directions. In this article we ask: how did the idea come about? What is the story behind a ten-year R&D project in Schlumberger – its largest single engineering investment ever? The result was a great innovation: IsoMetrix, a technology that can ‘read between the streamer lines’. The project not only delivered the new seismic acquisition technology, but also the algorithms and workflows needed to manage the unprecedented amount of data it produces.

Exploration beneath Salt

The prospectivity of stratigraphically younger sediments beneath a salt layer has held oil and gas explorationists' interest for years. The target of imaging technology has been to enhance the salt-sediment interface to efficiently optimise drilling in subsalt and presalt plays.

PART V: Gas Hydrates - The Resource Potential

The gas hydrate resource is a function of geology, technology, policy, and market conditions. As we have seen, the commercial resource and recovery potential of gas hydrate strongly depends on the type of gas hydrate accumulation. In Part V of our series on gas hydrates, we discuss the resource potential.

How Much Oil in the Middle East?

“No such galaxy of fields of the first magnitude over such a wide area has been developed in the history of the oil industry.” - Everette Lee DeGolyer, Oil in the Near East, 10 May 1940, Texas
