One way to decrease the cost and time of seismic data acquisition is to design sparser surveys by decimating the number of shots and receivers used. The tradeoffs associated with such decimations are investigated further here, using ocean-bottom node (OBN) data from a complex geological setting in a pre-salt play of the Santos Basin, offshore Brazil.

Following the drilling of the first ever exploration well in the Lebanese offshore, in 2020, Lebanon's hydrocarbon marathon begins. This article takes a closer look at the hydrocarbon system and future potential.
The upstream part of the oil and gas industry has been particularly disrupted with the global impact of the pandemic massively reducing the demand for oil and gas during 2020 - resulting in an almost unprecedented collapse in exploration activities globally.
So far, the increase in oil price has not brought back the level of confidence to M&A activity that was expected, which is very apparent when looking at exploration opportunities in the Asia-Pacific region.
With a huge amount of E&P potential in Africa, the PESGB/HGS Africa E&P Conference 2021 - taking place 14-15 September - offers the chance to gain new insights, promote exploration opportunities and build key connections with those active on the continent.
Created in collaboration with Oxford University Museum of Natural History and showcasing the best of William Smith’s archive, STRATA traces the life and work of William Smith from apprentice surveyor to scientific icon.
Whether you’re trying to monetise climate risk or find new ways to extend the life of offshore oil and gas assets, getting access to usable data is a vital part of the equation. It’s also key to an industry in transition.
