Case Study: MMI to Predict BTU Content of Marcellus Wells


Out in the October AAPG Explorer – the Geophysical Review edition – an article on NEOS’ work in the Marcellus resource play over a roughly 2,500 square-mile area in northwestern Pennsylvania. Click here (or on the image above) for the full article. For more on NEOS’ work in the Marcellus, visit the Appalachian neoBASIN webpage.

The Importance of Basement (Narrated Slideshow)

Basement plays a key role in establishing geologic environments conducive to hydrocarbon generation. Learn more about how through a multi-physics approach in which gravity, magnetic and EM datasets are simultaneously integrated, inverted and interpreted, NEOS helps to illuminate the basement and reveal key drivers of reservoir performance beyond the shale.

Near Surface Geoscience – NEOS in First Break


Given heightened environmental awareness among all key stakeholders involved in oil and gas exploration and development, generating insights about geologically associated features on the surface and in the near-surface are becoming nearly as important as insights about reservoirs themselves. In this month’s First Break, A Multi-Physics Approach to Near-Surface Characterization Over the Marcellus Shale – …

NEOS Tech Series: Using Magnetic Data to Locate Abandoned Wellbores

The cultural grid is separated from the total magnetic intensity and then compared to mapped features, like wells and pipelines.

By: Maggie Baber, NEOS Geoscientist Magnetic interpretation is an integral component of NEOS’s multi-measurement interpretation methodology (MMI). Magnetic data measures changes in a rock’s magnetic susceptibility, or the degree of magnetization in response to earth’s magnetic field. Rocks or materials with high magnetite content have a high magnetic susceptibility. Magnetics, along with gravity and other …

Unlock the Potential: Eco-Assurance

Eco-Assurance Header

For millions of years, Appalachian gas has migrated toward the surface along naturally occurring faults. Frequently, it gets trapped in shallow structures difficult to see on seismic images. Abandoned and undocumented wellbores, some a century old, compound the problem. Drilling into a shallow gas pocket en route to the Marcellus or Utica Shale can throw …

Unlock the Potential: Tioga

Tioga Header

Thanks to unconventional drilling and extraction techniques, the Appalachian Basin has experienced a multi-billion dollar economic resurgence. In Tioga County, Pennsylvania, a methodology called Multi- measurement Interpretation (MMI) has been introduced by NEOS GeoSolutions to provide a better understanding of the basin. NEOS acquired airborne geophysical data – magnetic, electromagnetic (EM), radiometric, gravity, and hyperspectral …

Unlock the Potential: Ventura

Ventura Header

Over the past 150 years, California’s Ventura Basin has been one of the world’s most productive regions, yielding nearly 4 billion barrels of oil. Coinciding with the shale boom and the subsequent search for sweet spots in the Monterey Shale, as well as recent multi-hundred-million barrel discoveries in the nearby San Joaquin Basin, explorationists have …

Unlock the Potential: Neuquen

Neuquen UtP Masthead

Argentina’s Neuquén Basin is one of the world’s most dynamic and underexplored hydrocarbon systems. Its two principal shale targets – Los Molles and Vaca Muerta – have been rich source rocks for the conventional reservoirs that have been produced in the basin for more than 50 years. With new technologies available for unconventional asset exploration …
