Access to readily available information on what plays can be found in basins of interest is a challenge many explorers face. On top of this, the speed and ease of access to such knowledge can be a major advantage in time-sensitive situations.

In this webinar, we will show examples of assessing both conventional and unconventional plays in PlayFinder™. We will investigate a number of exploration-based questions, utilizing the mapping technologies and dynamic filtering schemes to search geographically and geologically. This webinar will demonstrate the holistic global approach to geological play analysis provided by PlayFinder™ application and the support of other Exploration Insights™ products. We will highlight how to rapidly assess potential plays, understand key geological risks, and find appropriate analogous plays.

PlayFinder is our one-stop solution to play analysis. At its core is a continually updated global library of proven and new play concepts. Combining products from across the Exploration Insights product suite, PlayFinder provides rapid geological insight to answer your key geological questions across proven and frontier basins globally.
