Asset Evaluations

With a multidisciplinary team, Discover Geoscience is positioned to assist in all asset evaluations for clients' existing acreage or new ventures. Discover can assist in the full cycle evaluation of assets including geological and geophysical regional play analysis, prospect through to field evaluation, risking and volumetrics and a review of remaining reserves.

 

Leads and Prospect Portfolios

At Discover Geoscience our team are all highly experienced geoscientists with relevant oil company experience specialising in prospect evaluation and volumetric assessments. We can create a risked and ranked prospects and leads portfolios in preparation for farm-outs, IPO's or investor presentations.

 

Peer Reviews

Working as a multidisciplinary team across continents and a vast variety of global projects gives Discover Geoscience an outstanding perspective that may be difficult to match inhouse or when working with a small team. Allow us to provide insight and feedback to your prospects and drilling plans through a formal peer review process. Particularly during the drilling phase, small investments in reviewing all possibilities can often lead to substantial savings in rig time.

 

Post Well Analysis

A detailed and systematic post well review is a key foundation for prospectivity analysis, whether entering a new area or looking for fresh ideas in existing acreage. Discover Geoscience can prepare a systematic and objective post well analysis of each play level, analysing the presence and effectiveness of each of the petroleum system elements.

 

 

Sequence Stratigraphic Framework Analysis

Creating a sequence stratigraphic framework to interpret and anlayze prospectivity can assist greatly in understanding the expected nature of the depositional environments and spatial understanding of the likely facies distributions.

Discover Geoscience can assist in developing the sequence stratigraphic framework and chronostratigraphy, which can be used to determine the key horizons for seismic interpretation. The sequence stratigraphic framework can also assist with prospect risking by improving the understanding of the relative eustacy and source input of each play level.

 

Seismic Facies Mapping

Seismic facies mapping can be used for detailed mapping of facies at each play level. As a complementary next step to a standard seismic interpretation, mapping facies can assist in the development of detailed depositional environment and can also be used as a lithological predictor from regional to prospect scale.

 

Play and  Risk Mappping

Play and risk mapping are fast and effective ways of focussing in on the most prospective blocks or areas. Discover Geoscience has vast experience in play mapping and common risk segment mapping and can provide this as a service to clients to assist in decision making regarding bidding rounds, new ventures assessments or regional portfolio management.

 

Well Planning

The staff at Discover Geoscience have a wealth of operational experience from around the globe, and collectively have planned and executed the drilling of a vast number of wells from deepwater wildcat exploration to HPHT field developments. Our experienced geoscience team can assist with all aspects of well planning from Basis of Well Design, Formation Evaluation, Lithological and Formation Prediction, Shallow Hazards Analysis, Well Testing and VSP Design.
