Mind the Gaps? Infill the ‘White Space’ Among 2-D Seismic Lines

You’ve been tasked with evaluating the prospectivity of an emerging play, including recommending whether to enter the play or look elsewhere. If you’re entering, you also need to determine the best acreage to lease. What’s your first move? If you’re like most explorationists, you’ll turn to seismic, most likely 2-D since data is readily available for license in most areas or relatively easily acquired if not already on the shelf.

That’s a good start. But is it enough? How do you know what’s happening between sparsely spaced 2-D lines? Will 2-D provide enough insight into how the interplay of tectonics, deposition, and migration fit together so you feel confident making the call on whether to enter and, if so, where to lease and explore?

If you think more could be done, you’re not alone.

Fortunately, NEOS offers a cost effective solution that can help infill 2-D seismic lines and provide the insights needed to answer the tough questions management will be sure to ask.
