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question, “if I already have access to some public Grav-Mag data, why are you suggesting I spend more money to acquire a newer version of the ‘same’ data?”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

Marcellus Case Study – Tioga County, Pennsylvania

Resistivity voxel over an ~80 sqkm area of Tioga County, Pennsylvania. Top is ~500' subsurface while the bottome is ~10,000' subsurface. High resistivity intervals (subsurface gas plumes?) shown in hot colors. Surface oil seeps noted in green; surface gas plumes in pink.

In 2011, NEOS GeoSolutions kicked off its first-ever project in Appalachia – a combined neoBASIN survey over all of Tioga County, PA and a more focused neoPROSPECTOR survey covering an ~80 sqkm patch in the southwestern part of the county. The objectives were clearly laid out by the lead underwriter, a supermajor that had previously bought …

Insights Throughout the Geologic Column: Basement Applications

Basement Gneiss

Multi-measurement methodologies find application throughout the geologic column, from the basement to the surface. In this, the first of a four-part series, we look at applications in the deepest horizon of interest to most explorationists: the basement. As all geoscientists know, the basement is the foundation upon which all the other sedimentary layers rest, hence …

Explore with More: Powder River Basin, Wyoming


The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) estimates that the Powder River Basin (PRB) contains approximately 1 billion BOE of remaining recoverable oil and 15 TCF (2.5 billion BOE) of remaining recoverable natural gas. Forty percent of the liquid hydrocarbons are believed to be contained in two unconventional shales – the Mowry and the Niobrara – while …

A New Look at an Old Basin: Ventura neoBASIN Project

Basement Topography of a Portion of the Ventura Basin - Hot colors represent structural highs; cool colors represent structural lows; producing wells represented by black dots.

California’s Ventura Basin has been in production since 1861, the year Lincoln was sworn in as President of the United States and the first shots of the Civil War were fired. Approximately 100 oil & gas fields have been discovered since, with cumulative production from the region exceeding 4 billion barrels of oil equivalent. Although activity has …
