Test your neoBASIN™ Knowledge

Are you on target with your neoBASIN knowledge?

How well do you know your neoBASINS? Throughout the year we’ve shared details of our geoscience programs with you and we hope you’ve been paying close attention. ‘Tis the season of giving and at NEOS we’re looking to do just that. Complete the quiz and multi-measurement match-up below, to test your neoBASIN knowledge, for a chance to win a fun NEOS prize. But before you do, here’s a quick refresher of our neoBASIN offering.

NEOS has undertaken multi-measurement interpretation projects in key hydrocarbon regions throughout North and South America. Our neoBASIN programs are designed to provide an integrated, basin-level understanding of regional geology and hydrocarbon systems from the ‘source to the surface’.

Each program utilizes a unique, multi-measurement interpretation methodology that integrates all available G&G information: public domain and 3rd party data; information from client or NEOS data archives; and newly acquired gravity, magnetic, and hyperspectral measurements. Once all relevant data has been gathered and quality controlled, a statistically guided simultaneous joint inversion is performed to generate highly constrained, 3-D distributions of rock properties, fluid saturations, and fracture zones. neoBASIN data can also provide useful insights on surface lineaments and geochemistry, and help to establish environmental baselines.

Our oil & gas portfolio includes projects in the Bossier- Haynesville, Marcellus, Neuquén, Piceance, Ventura, and Niobrara basins.
