Denmark has a rich exploration history with numerous hydrocarbon discoveries totalling over 100
MMboe in recoverable reserves. Recently reprocessed vintage 3D data provides the perfect platform to support any renewed exploration efforts in Denmark.
An innovative new modelling workflow for reservoir characterisation has been developed that is capable of producing an advanced 3D geomodel of any subsurface zone of interest and can identify potential sand gas or oil zones that have previously lain undetected within a producing area.
Easy access to accurate maps is an important part of exploration. Francis Cram, founder and CTO of MapStand, a new open platform for easy tracking of oil and gas activities and live geo-tagged news, explains how open data access will transform the oil and gas industry.
The Geophysical Institute of Israel (GII), a leading global seismic acquisition provider, has purchased a brand new silenced mini-Vibrator fleet from INOVA Geophysical and coupled it with the Quantum nodal receiver system.
There is a trend away from frontier oil and gas exploration towards finding more in less risky proven basins, fuelled by learning gleaned from studying the most successful petroleum basins in the world.
The Middle East is best known for its conventional oil and gas reserves, which have been a critical part of the world’s supply for nearly a century. Could the US shale revolution be transferred to the Middle East? Maybe – but geology is not the only factor in the shale revolution.
