Home  »  Tuning the Exploration Engine


For many of the world’s top E&P companies’ exploration is shifting back into gear or in some cases, being re-started after two years of idled activity. These organizations are finding tracks to explore in smarter and more cost effective ways by tuning their exploration engine to compete with lower cost energy alternatives such as US onshore shale plays.

Based on risk profiles, some companies are racing to be the first to open up new frontier basins while others are pursuing near field exploration. Whatever exploration approach your company is pursuing, Landmark provides the content, science and cross-domain workflows needed to help you successfully navigate the exploration & appraisal lifecycle for greater economic success.

Rovuma Success - Zambezi Promise?

Much like in the Rovuma Basin, key periods for reservoir development in the Zambezi Basin will be closely linked to tectonic events and the evolution of drainage systems, in this case the Zambezi River. Could the success in the Rovuma Basin lead to promise in the Zambezi basin?

Structural History of the North African Margin: Insights Into the Prediction of Offshore Plays

Variable exploration success in the North African offshore shows that a comprehensive understanding of the geological history of the margin is necessary to understand the various petroleum systems, predict plays and reduce risk. Read how using the Exploration Insights Plate Model and our database of age-attributed tectonic elements has allowed us to reconstruct the geodynamic context and establish the relative timing of associated structural events.

Capturing Uncertainty in Basin Modelling: Better Subsurface Risk Assessment in Frontier Basins

Basin modelling is an integral tool used throughout the exploration and production lifecycle to investigate and quantify risk associated with petroleum charge in a basin. In frontier basins where subsurface datasets are limited, the nature of the source rock (areal extent, thickness, richness, kerogen type) and the heat flow model are typically the most poorly understood aspects of the basin model.
