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. Click on the image below …

Your Basement is Full of Dark Secrets

NEOS_Basement_LinkedIn

A good horror or suspense film can get your heart pounding and adrenaline racing.  Simply thinking of the dark, creepy basements in blockbuster movies like Psycho and Silence of the Lambs is enough to make anyone’s skin crawl. Have you ever had a similar sensation when evaluating your shale play? Is your basement full of …

NEOS Tech Series: Predictive Analytics to Support Big Decisions

Oil in Place Model

Geostatistical Predictive Analytics is a crucial part of the Multi-Measurement Interpretation (MMI) methodology. The term Predictive Analytics itself is a bit of a buzz term that can be used to describe any approach to data mining to predict trends or behaviors in the effort to identify risks and opportunities. Among the various approaches to Geostatistical …

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 …

NEOS Tech Series: Multi-Physics Reveals Basement Secrets

Magnetic data along the Mid-Atlantic Ridge

The NEOS MMI methodology, specifically with the use of potential methods, is greatly suited to provide understanding of the structural complexity of a basin, at the basement level. While gravity and magnetic methods use different rock properties (density vs. susceptibility), these methods are diagnostic and when taken together can eliminate many geologic alternative scenarios therefore …

NEOS Tech Series: Gravity & Magnetics

Grav&Mag

A multi-physics approach to geoscience allows NEOS to simultaneously interpret several possible geophysical measurements in order to uncover deeper insights into regional prospectivity and well productivity. While there may be potential for the inclusion of a number of measurements within an interpretation, each is equally unique and beneficial on its own accord. GRAVITY & MAGNETICS …

Why Acquire New Gravity & Magnetic Data?

Grav-Mag

We often get asked the question, “if I already have access to some public Grav-Mag data, why are you suggesting I spend more money to acquire a newer version of the ‘same’ data?” While it’s true that we’re dealing with the same measurements – gravity and magnetic – the quality and utility of the public data …
