An empirically verified theory provides petroleum geologists with a tool to make it easier to explore oil and gas.

Most of the world's oil and gas occurs in reservoirs with a temperature between 60 and 120 °C
Errors in fault interpretation can have significant negative impact on reservoir models, facility plans, and field economics. By using integrated software applications and workflows that cross disciplines, asset teams can understand complex reservoirs better and faster.
For a geoscientist, hiking the Grand Canyon is a trip through two billion years of the past, making on average an impressive 60,000 years back in time for every step. This geologic showpiece, the greatest gorge on Earth, has been carved out by the Colorado River in a mere five million years.
The installation of a permanent seismic array in the Norwegian Valhall field enables the operator to run frequent 4D re-shoots, and the amount of oil to be recovered may increase substantially by managing the reservoir better.
