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 …

A Multi-Method Approach for Exploring the Neuquén Basin

GEO_ExPro_v11i2(2)

In GeoExPro‘s Issue 2, 2014, out this month, a NEOS case study on one of the most dynamic and underexplored hydrocarbon systems, the Neuquén Basin. …several operators in the region began to look ‘outside of the box’ for a fast and efficient exploration method in which the target shale intervals could be mapped and the most …

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 …

Unlock the Potential: Tioga

Tioga Header

Thanks to unconventional drilling and extraction techniques, the Appalachian Basin has experienced a multi-billion dollar economic resurgence. In Tioga County, Pennsylvania, a methodology called Multi- measurement Interpretation (MMI) has been introduced by NEOS GeoSolutions to provide a better understanding of the basin. NEOS acquired airborne geophysical data – magnetic, electromagnetic (EM), radiometric, gravity, and hyperspectral …

What a great time several of us had in the Greater Pittsburgh area last week (and no, it wasn’t to celebrate the first playoff appearance by the Pirates after twenty consecutive losing seasons)! After two solid days of collaborative brainstorming in an unconventional shale workshop hosted by our largest customer, a dozen of us – NEOS …

Unlock the Potential: Ventura

Ventura Header

Over the past 150 years, California’s Ventura Basin has been one of the world’s most productive regions, yielding nearly 4 billion barrels of oil. Coinciding with the shale boom and the subsequent search for sweet spots in the Monterey Shale, as well as recent multi-hundred-million barrel discoveries in the nearby San Joaquin Basin, explorationists have …

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 …

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 …
