Turbidite slope channel deposits pose many challenges during exploration and development planning. Spectacular exposures in southern Chile provide useful insights in predicting sandstone distribution and connectivity in these complex reservoirs.

Water occurs virtually everywhere in oil and gas fields – yet it is often ignored. But the composition of today´s formation water is the result of multiple hydrogeochemical processes, and a primary source of valuable information.
From microscopic core analysis of the wellbore to seismic data measurements of rock properties between wells, a multidisciplinary team is essential when solving exploration and production problems in complex reservoirs.

Following a rock properties-based workflow for shale plays makes it possible to gather intelligence which not only defines where to drill and how to frac, but also better predicts the economic outcome.
