TECHNOLOGY DRIVEN EXPLORATION

Prospects are generated based on play models.

According to NPD, “a play is a geographically and stratigraphically delimited area where a specific set of geological factors such as reservoir rock, trap, mature source rock and migrations paths exist in order that petroleum may be provable”.

A prospect is a potential trap which geologists believe may contain gas and/or oil. Their belief is based on the interpretation of extensive geological and geophysical data.

It is not, however, always true that “oil is found in the minds of men”, as has been said. More and more often gas and oil is found using new, innovative technology in combination with traditional geophysical methods and sound geological thinking.

In several recent discoveries on the NCS it is fair to say that exploration and prospect generation was driven by technology. This is why we have selected “technology driven exploration” as a subject in the Hydrocarbon Habitats series.
