Appalachian neoOBASIN

Appalachian neoBASIN

The Appalachian basin province covers an area of about 185,500 square miles, extending over 10 states from New York to Tennessee. The modern oil & gas industry began with the discovery of oil in Venango County, Pennsylvania in 1859. Today, the Marcellus shale is one of North America's most active unconventional shale plays and the deeper, more liquids prone Utica Shale has also begun to attract significant interest.

NEOS has completed a program that provides geo-scientific insights into the surface, near-surface, and subsurface in key development areas of the Marcellus and Utica Shales within the Appalachian Basin. The initial phases of the program cover Tioga and Venango counties, in Pennsylvania. Program expansions are planned in 2012.

Deep Bossier neoBASIN

Deep Bossier neoBASIN

The Deep Bossier area of east Texas and western Louisiana has a long history of hydrocarbon production, with the region gaining world-class status in the 1930's with the discovery of the giant East Texas Oil Field.

NEOS applied its multi-measurement methodology to newly acquired airborne geophysical datasets over a portion of East Texas to support the exploration efforts of an E&P operator targeting deeply buried submarine fan complexes.

Neuquen neoBASIN

Neuquén neoBASIN

The Neuquén Basin of Argentina is one of Latin America's most dynamic hydrocarbon systems. The Neuquén lies just east of the Andes deformation. The Los Molles and Vaca Muerta black shales are widespread throughout the basin and have served as rich source rocks for the reservoirs that have been producing in the area for more than 50 years.

NEOS is undertaking an ever-expanding program to allow E&P operators to highgrade their existing acreage positions by better understanding basin-scale geologic features, regional fault and fracture networks, and the thermal maturation history (and relative liquid-generation potential) of the targeted shale zones.

Piceance neoBASIN

Colorado neoBASINs

Colorado contains several important hydrocarbon-producing basins, including the Denver-Julesburg (D-J), Sand Wash, and Piceance. Many of the most important oil & gas producing sediments in these basins were deposited in and along the Western Interior Seaway that ran north from the present-day Gulf of Mexico to the Arctic Ocean during the Cretaceous. Key horizons of interest include the Mancos and Niobrara shales, the latter of which became the focus of renewed industry interest following the success of EOG’s ‘Jake’ well in Weld County.

NEOS multi-measurement interpretation methods were used to map regional geology in all three of these basins and to highlight potential sweet spots within the Niobrara.

Ventura neoBASIN

Ventura neoBASIN

The Ventura Basin has a long history of hydrocarbon production that dates back to 1861, with four billion barrels of oil equivalent having been produced from approximately 100 known oil & gas fields. Today, operators are intrigued by the exploration potential of deeper and by-passed targets.

NEOS has completed a multi-measurement study over 1,000 square miles of the onshore Ventura Basin that has revealed new sedimentary depo-centers, extensional plays, and regional fault systems that drive field locations and the relative prospectivity of known producing horizons within the basin.
