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 hourly basis during each day of the conference, providing visitors with overviews of our Multi-Measurement Interpretation (MMI) methodology, the technologies that underpin it, and the applications of MMI on various projects around the world.
In coming weeks, NEOS will be featuring narrated versions of the presentations on our blog, our web site, and various social media outlets including Facebook and LinkedIn.
Below is the first presentation in the series, an Overview of NEOS and Multi-Physics Interpretation as applied in oil & gas exploration. You can access it by clicking here or on the image below.

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 grown intrigued by the untapped hydrocarbon potential in a basin presumed to be past its prime. However, since most of the area is densely populated, environmentally sensitive and topographically challenging, ground-based seismic acquisition is impractical — not to mention expensive.
NEOS GeoSolutions conducted a 1,300 square mile survey that combined all available geological, geophysical, geochemical and petrophysical datasets. This information, obtained from the public domain, third-party sources and NEOS’s own archives, was combined with newly acquired gravity, magnetic, and hyperspectral data, and then simultaneously integrated and interpreted using a Multi-measurement Interpretation (MMI) methodology.
