Data and interpretation on petroleum systems worldwide for deep insight on play characteristics.​

Advanced includes all the components of Core, and also enables you to
answer questions like:

  • What are the known and prospective plays?
  • What are the characteristics of these petroleum systems?
  • What are the regional depth trends?
  • What is the burial history and how does this impact timing?  …and much more








Play Analysis

  • Access our global database of proven, analogue and frontier play concepts for new ideas in mature, frontier and unconventional provinces
  • Improve understanding of the key risks for each petroleum systems element of these plays and their sequence stratigraphic address
  •  An extensive, searchable repository of proven accumulations to identify appropriate analogues..

Organic Geochemistry

    • An extensive global database of organic geochemistry information for proven and potential source rocks and produced fluids.
    • Data cover all key geochemical parameters used in exploration. All data are spatially located and are assigned a precise age using our sequence stratigraphic model allowing for greater confidence and higher resolution in interpretation.
    • Understand the distribution, quality and maturity of proven and potential source rocks for conventional and unconventional play analysis.

    Rock Properties

    • Detailed insight into the character and quality of proven and potential reservoirs and seals on a global scale through an extensive library of rock properties data.
    • Place quantitative constraints on key play elements in the subsurface to aid reservoir characterisation and regional trends in presence and effectiveness for delineating cut-offs.
    • With spatial and temporal attributes, these data help reduce uncertainty in subsurface risk analysis.

    Depth Analysis

    • Regional-scale structure depth models for key stratigraphic horizons delivered in DecisionSpace®, constrained by numerous diverse geoscience datasets.
    • Access the only globally consistent, unified, ready-to-use subsurface model for Earth.
    • Integrate your proprietary data for a regionally-constrained view on opportunities
    • Capture corporate knowledge.

    Basin Modelling

    • A series of 1D basin models, which leverage our geoscience content alongside the powerful capabilities of basin modelling software Permedia™, have been developed.
    • Gain new understanding of key parameters effecting prospectivity. These include burial history, thermal history, hydrocarbon generation, migration and trap formation.
    • The data used in developing the models is also supplied in a format which is ready to be incorporated in further models, meaning proprietary data can be readily integrated.
