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 …

Near Surface Geoscience – NEOS in First Break

FirstBreak_Aug2014

Given heightened environmental awareness among all key stakeholders involved in oil and gas exploration and development, generating insights about geologically associated features on the surface and in the near-surface are becoming nearly as important as insights about reservoirs themselves. In this month’s First Break, A Multi-Physics Approach to Near-Surface Characterization Over the Marcellus Shale – …

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: 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 …

Unlocking the Potential – NEOS in Upstream Technology

Upstream-Technology_Silicon-valley-meets-oil-patch_Jan2014(6)

Andrew McBarnet explores NEOS’ innovative approach to MMI in the article “Silicon Valley Meets the Oil Patch” in Upstream Technology Magazine. Take a look! The big idea driving NEOS is a rethinking of how geological and geophysical (G&G) data can be harnessed to provide rapid, cost effective answers for E&P companies under pressure to make …

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 …

NEOS Presents at the IQ Earth Forum

IQ Earth Forum

NEOS is no stranger to the IQ Earth Forum, having been a speaker at the last two consecutive events. IQ (Integrated and Quantitative) Earth is a strategic initiative within SEG, intended to create a fundamental change in visualizing and predicting subsurface structure and rock and fluid properties through quantitative subsurface integration. This year’s theme centers …

BHP Billiton’s Dave Rainey on Shale Geology & Geophysics

WorldOilCover

I ran across the following excerpt from BHP Billiton‘s President of Petroleum Exploration and Chief Geoscientist, Dave Rainey, in the March 2014 edition of World Oil.  I found it fascinating, as the regional, multi-physics approach to shale development he is advocating is highly aligned with NEOS’s multi-measurement interpretation (MMI) approach. I’ve been told that one …
