Analysis of the AAPG giant fields database reveals that there has been a step change in volumes of oil attributed to non-structural traps in the last 20 years. Why is that – and where should we be looking for them?
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.
