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 …

NEOS Launches Eco-Assurance Offering

Appalachia Farm

NEOS has launched a new Eco-Assurance solution for oil & gas companies seeking additional insights related to surface and near-surface geologic conditions. Although designed for E&P companies operating in Appalachia, the Eco-Assurance solution can be implemented in almost any natural resource exploration and development setting. E&P operators in Appalachia face significant scrutiny when conducting their drilling, …

Neuquen neoBASIN Program Continues to Expand

TOC variations across various formations outcropping in Argentina's Neuquen Basin. Image is roughly 10km across x 30 km long. Red = High TOC; Blue = Low TOC

NEOS has completed Phase I of its multi-measurement project in Argentina’s Neuquen Basin, having delivered the results to the program’s underwriters (a group that included a North American supermajor). This particular survey made extensive use of hyperspectral imaging to map outcrops, detect oil seeps, identify indirect hydrocarbon indicators, and even delineate Total Organic Carbon (TOC) variations on an areal basis …
