Holiday Reading List: Abundance


I ran across a great book recently, written by a couple of really interesting guys.  One – Peter Diamandis – is an MIT rocket scientist, Harvard-trained physician, satellite entreprenneur, and founder of the X Prize Foundation (which provides grants to fund private, passenger-carrying spaceships).  The second is Steven Kotler, a prolific author and Forbes blogger on …

Analyst Sees $130 Oil in 2017

Interesting prediction, somewhat against the currently prevailing conventional wisdom. Lays out the rationale behind his ‘call’ and which market sectors to bet on if he’s right.

NEOS’ SIG Launches Frequency Enhancement Offering

The Seismic Imaging Group (SIG) at NEOS has launched a new seismic data processing offering.  This technique for structurally oriented frequency enhancement (SOFE) significantly improves the recovery of high and low frequency acoustic signal. The result is an improvement in the vertical resolution of seismic images and an increase in the quality and utility of the seismic …

When Geos Hit the Road: Petra


CMOh and our Senior Exploration Project Director had the good fortune to be in Jordan this weekend as part of a business development swing through the greater Mediterranean and Levant region.  The Sunday downtime destination? Petra – a UNESCO World Heritage site, one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, and one of Smithsonian …

An Emerging Hydrocarbon Province – Lebanon (Part 6 of 6)

LBN NarratedSlideshow

A 13-minute narrated slideshow describing some of the exciting findings about the oil & gas exploration potential of Lebanon is accessible by clicking here or on the image above. Click here to learn more about the Lebanon neoBASIN project on the Global Programs page of the NEOS web site.

Friday Fun: Seismic Reptiles

Seismic Reptiles

The image above can be found on a really cool blog post from the Agile Geoscience team. It basically shows what happens when the power of machine learning algorithms and multi-layer neural networks are over-extended, in this case identifying ‘hidden reptiles’ among the reflection layers of a seismic section. The original work (equally cool, albeit …

NEOS Buys Onshore Seismic Data Processing Business

NEOS teaser homepage_FINAL

I’m not sure if you’ve seen it yet, but NEOS just announced our acquisition of the onshore seismic data processing business of ION Geophysical’s GX Technology group. Click here to read the press release. This transaction involves a group of about 25 Denver-based folks who originally started as AXIS Geophysics and which ION acquired back …

An Emerging Hydrocarbon Province – Lebanon (Part 5 of 6)

LBN Plays

NEOS identified four distinct play types in the 6,000 sqkm area assessed on the Lebanon neoBASIN project: A Triassic interval (BLUE) which is geologically similar to the gas and condensate fields of Syria’s Palmyride Belt to the northeast of the survey area; A deeper (and potentially more gas prone) Paleozoic interval (PURPLE) also analogous to …
