Upcoming Events & Presentations from NEOS

With the year in full swing and several industry events around the corner, we want to remind everyone to not miss your chance to catch our own Dr. Morgan Brown – an expert in seismic depth imaging – presenting at two upcoming events. If you aren’t able to make these events, not to worry; we will upload a recording of Morgan’s presentation in the coming weeks.

2017 3D Seismic Symposium – Wednesday, February 22 in Denver

Organized by the Rocky Mountain Association of Geologists (RMAG) and the Denver Geophysical Society (DGS), this year’s symposium promises a full agenda of informational presentations focused on seismic imaging in North America. Morgan will take the stage at 10:30 AM to present a prestack depth migration case study from the Appalachian Basin/Marcellus-Utica shale.

CSEG Technical Luncheon – Monday, February 27 in Calgary

The following week, Morgan will be presenting at CSEG’s luncheon. The lunch starts at 11:30 at the Calgary Petroleum Club.

 

About Dr. Morgan Brown
Morgan is a well-known evangelist for advanced seismic processing technology including PSDM imaging. As a Geophysical Advisor in Depth Imaging at NEOS, his role includes optimizing PSDM workflows and consulting on internal PSDM projects. Morgan received a Ph.D. in Geophysics from Stanford University and a B.A. in Applied Math from Rice University.

NEOS Presents at 3D Seismic Symposium – PreStack Depth Migration for Structural Imaging

RMAG’s Annual 3D Seismic Symposium is nearly upon us again. Be sure to mark you calendars to catch our presentation on PreStack Depth Migration (PSDM).  NEOS’ Dr Morgan Brown will present a case from a multi-client survey in northwest Pennsylvania where PSDM provided key structural imaging benefits for horizontal drilling applications, materially reducing the risk of dropping out of zone during geosteering. Additionally we will set out to demonstrate how in the future PSDM will also improve the accuracy of any rock property attributes derived from migrated gathers. Join us to see how we do it.

NEOS Presenting at 2016 SEG

NEOS recently completed a study over 1,000 square miles of Southern Colorado to identify areas that may contain CO2 reservoirs.  Airborne magnetic and EM (ZTEM) data were collected and integrated with proprietary seismic and well data, as well as public domain ground gravity data.  With a more quantitative integration using Predictive Analytics methodology we were then able to highlight areas that may have a higher potential to host CO2 reservoirs. Join us at the SEG Technical Program next week to gain more insight into this study.

Introducing our New Logo & Website

We are excited to debut our new look as a part of the evolution of NEOS.

neoslogo_600x186x150dpi_forwebBy harnessing technological innovations and seeking out smart synergies, we continue to advance multi-physics and grow as a company. As we have evolved, so has our look; and we are excited to share our new brand with you.

Visit neosgeo.com to discover how we are reinventing exploration and leading the way to a brighter future.

Stay tuned over the coming weeks and months as we reveal more.

NEOS Presenting at 2016 AAPG

 

AAPG logoNEOS recently took on a project to asses the supply source of CO2 used for Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) in the northern Raton Basin. Onshore structurally complex areas, such as this, combined with large amount of igneous intrusions can be difficult to image at depth with seismic data alone.

This multi-measurement interpretation study incorporating airborne- and ground-acquired geophysical data covers more than 1,000 square miles of topographically challenging, environmentally sensitive terrain in the Rocky Mountain region, an area containing numerous natural accumulations of CO2.

Join us at the AAPG Technical Program next week to gain more insight into this study.

NEOS to Acquire CGG Multi-Physics Business

NEOS_CGG_homepage2

Earlier today, NEOS and CGG announced that they entered into a Definitive Agreement in which NEOS has agreed to purchase CGG’s Multi-Physics business line & General Geophysics Italy business (read:  press release).  These two businesses are part of the CGG group of companies, a leading provider of geoscience technologies, services and equipment.

DASH-7-RebrandedThe Multi-Physics business operates the world’s largest fleet of geophysical data acquisition aircraft, is the leading provider of airborne gravity gradiometry (AGG) systems and acquisition services, owns one of the industry’s largest non-exclusive libraries of gravity and magnetic data, and has a distinctive capability in acquiring and processing airborne electromagnetic (EM) data.

According to NEOS CEO, Jim Hollis,

“We are combining two of the leading proponents of multi-measurement interpretation, albeit with different strengths.

CGG’s Multi-Physics & General Geophysics Italy business is acknowledged for its advanced geophysical sensor technologies, efficient data acquisition platforms, and excellence in all facets of airborne operational execution, particularly in its HSE philosophy and performance.

NEOS has focused in the areas of multi-physics data processing, integration and interpretation, as well as predictive analytics.

By combining the entities, we will be able to better deliver a full-scope exploration offering that encompasses multi-measurement survey design, data acquisition, processing and analytic interpretation.  Moreover, the combined entity will have a truly global operational footprint in key natural resource centers, with a client base that includes the world’s leading oil, natural gas, and mining firms.”

After the transaction closes in a number of months, the combined company will feature:

  • Aircraft: world’s largest fleet of geophysical acquisition aircraft;
  • Data libraries: one of the largest non-exclusive libraries of gravity and magnetic data;
  • Gravity gradiometry: industry’s largest portfolio of airborne gravity gradiometry (AGG) systems;
  • EM technologies: unique capabilities in electromagnetic data acquisition, imaging and interpretation;
  • Seismic imaging: industry-leading capabilities in seismic data processing in complex geologic regimes, including subsalt, naturally fractured, and stacked-pay reservoirs;
  • Geophysical software: proprietary geophysical software supporting multi-physics data integration and interpretation;
  • Marine acquisition services: the leading provider of marine potential fields acquisition services to the oil & gas industry;
  • Analytic interpretation: proprietary predictive analytics algorithms and methodologies used to highgrade exploration acreage and identify new exploration targets;
  • Global team: 350 professionals positioned in key natural resource exploration centers in the United States, Canada, Australia, South Africa, Italy and Brazil.
