Three new play types based on a deep-basin Jurassic petroleum system offshore Atlantic Morocco have been identified, based on interpretation of new deepwater seismic data and information from DSDP boreholes.
GeoStreamer X, a faster, smarter acquisition and subsurface imaging solution, reveals greater hydrocarbon potential in the Viking Graben by illuminating complex geological targets, with a significantly reduced environmental footprint.
A geologist turned reservoir engineer makes a plea to fellow reservoir engineers to use all the tools at their disposal, including studying 3D visualisations to better understand hydrocarbon reservoir simulations.
