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


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


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


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 …

Unlock the Potential: Eco-Assurance

Eco-Assurance Header

For millions of years, Appalachian gas has migrated toward the surface along naturally occurring faults. Frequently, it gets trapped in shallow structures difficult to see on seismic images. Abandoned and undocumented wellbores, some a century old, compound the problem. Drilling into a shallow gas pocket en route to the Marcellus or Utica Shale can throw …
