GIS to manage exploration risk

A Geographical Information System is ideally suited to manage many of the risks associated with exploration and oilfield activities. Risks such as, but not limited to – Accidents, dangerous roads, steep inclines and slopes – In project execution, doing something you were not supposed to do and not knowing you did it – Having to Read more about GIS to manage exploration risk[…]

Using GIS to scout a land seismic survey

A 3D land seismic crew has the potential to be a big operation. How big? “A land seismic survey conducted in 2005 had 400,000 sensors per square kilometer; by 2009, that number had reached 36 million. From 2005 to 2009, the average volume of data gathered on an eight-hour shift grew from 100 gigabytes to Read more about Using GIS to scout a land seismic survey[…]

3 reasons to revisit EO again for Oil and Gas

1 History, a chance to look again at EO EO data today should be a more attractive proposition than it has previously been. I looked at an article from World Oil this week, written in 2002. It is worth a read to see how the O&G sector was using EO 14 years ago. “Data prices Read more about 3 reasons to revisit EO again for Oil and Gas[…]

Geofencing and Exploration

The aim of a seismic survey is to map the subsurface in the most detailed and efficient way, mapping the reservoir so that critical decisions, such as choosing a drilling location, can be made with increased confidence. Definition of the target and an understanding of the quality of data that can be achieved in the Read more about Geofencing and Exploration[…]
