The important breakthrough in the last decenia in Exploration and Production has been in the seismic . Especially the introduction of the three dimensional seismic method in the mid seventies has inpacted the subsurface insight in E&Pdramaticly.
Inteligent/smart oil fields require an inteligent operator interface.A combination of a smart CAD model of the production facilities were condition of e.g. flow parameters are diplayed in real time takes operatorship to the next level.
Considering the subsurface not only as an acoustic medium but also as a electrolyte system. This can be studied separately as well as in combination as conversion as well as dependence of both systems occur. Exiting possibilities to detect hyrocarbons have been identified. Learn more >>
Passive 3D Seismic Imaging using seismic earthquake activity as a source. This tomographic method provides striking three dimensional images in complex geological areas were 2 dimensional seismic data is notoriously poor and 3 dimensional seismic cost are prohibitive. Learn more >>
