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 4 of 6)

Significant increase (log-scale) in intra-horizon resistivity as one moves up-section in the Cretaceous

On the Lebanon neoBASIN regional reconnaissance project, we acquired EM resistivity data from roughly 45 ground-based magnetotelluric (MT) stations that were deployed throughout the survey area.  Challenging topography and dynamic geo-political conditions on the ground didn’t always let us deploy the stations where we wanted to, but we did get some interesting results nonetheless. The …

An Emerging Hydrocarbon Province – Lebanon (Part 1 of 6)

Oil & Gas Fields of the Levant and Eastern Med.  6,000 sqkm Lebanon neoBASIN project area highlighted in black.

Greetings followers of NEOS.  There’s a really interesting oil & gas exploration story developing in a new frontier hydrocarbon province – of all places, in Lebanon!  I know, you probably are as skeptical reading this today as I was when our project started about a year ago.  But there is cause for hope in the Levant! …

A View from Space: Remote Sensing

LiDAR_PA

In this blog series on publicly available data we have thus far looked closely at the value (and limitation) of satellite data. There currently exists more than 2,200 satellites orbiting the earth, many providing a steady stream of scientific data. One might argue that the primary benefit of satellite data, at least in the case …

It Just Keeps Getting Better…

At NEOS, we were excited to hear the news last week that there is a new way being developed to launch satellites into space.  Using airplanes to launch the satellites into space will save money and time (though happy I won’t be asked to fly that mission).  The report speaks about advantages to internet access and real-time tracking of …

A View From Space: Gravity & Magnetic Data

Bouguer gravity anomaly, distinguishing thick from thin crust by more negative and positive values. Image provide by ESA/IRENA.

A new way to look at the Earth began with the launch of the first satellite in 1957.  Today more than 2,200 satellites orbit the Earth, many providing a steady stream of scientific data. Accurate satellite imagery may be the most cost-effective source of data collection in oil and gas exploration.  And it often has …

A View from Space: Multi-spectral and Hyperspectral Data

ASTER-NASA

The first satellite was launched in 1957 by the Soviets (Sputnik 1), quickly followed by one launched by the Americans (Explorer 1).  And so began a new way to look at the Earth.  Today more than 2,200 satellites orbit the Earth, many providing a steady stream of scientific data. Accurate satellite imagery may be the …

SEG Presentation: An Introduction to NEOS and Multi-Physics Interpretation in Oil & Gas Exploration

SEG Booth Theater

Last week, NEOS joined 350 other companies, government agencies, and research and educational institutions at the 84th Annual Meeting of the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG).  NEOS exhibited from a new booth on the exhibition show floor featuring, for the first time ever, a booth theater. Various presentations were delivered within the theater on an …
