NEOS is a solutions-oriented geosciences company that is a leader in the emerging field of multi-measurement subsurface interpretation. Our mission is to help our clients in the onshore oil & gas and mining industries make faster, more informed decisions about where to explore, where to lease, and where to drill.
We do this by integrating a broad range of geological and geophysical (G&G) data – including data available in the public domain, owned by our clients, or acquired using proprietary NEOS platforms – to produce a highly constrained 3D model of the subsurface. By applying the latest geostatistical techniques, we help our clients determine which portions of a basin might be the most prospective and, at the lease level, what areas are most likely to contain commercial quantities of hydrocarbons or minerals.
NEOS was formed as a new breed of geosciences company where "Silicon Valley meets the oil patch." One of our largest investors is the venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers (KPCB), the entity that backed pioneering companies such as Google, Symantec, Amazon, and Electronic Arts. By tapping into the networks of KPCB and our two other lead investors – Goldman Sachs and Passport Capital – we ensure our methods incorporate the latest thinking in sensors, computing, neural networks, visualization and intelligent search.
