An Emerging Hydrocarbon Province – Lebanon (Part 2 of 6)


We continue our Lebanon neoBASIN project series, this time, taking a look at some large, basement-driven  structural highs that have been identified in the Triassic and Paleozoic intervals in the survey area. Our highly constrained, multi-measurement methodology for developing these types of 2-D cross-sectional models is covered elsewhere (you might review our MMI 101 narrated slideshow …

A View From Space: Gravity & Magnetic Data

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 …

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


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 …

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 …

Why Acquire New Gravity & Magnetic Data?


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question, “if I already have access to some public Grav-Mag data, why are you suggesting I spend more money to acquire a newer version of the ‘same’ data?”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 …

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 …
