Uncover Opportunities in a Volatile Industry

Increases in oil and gas supply and lower demand due to a weak global economy, regulations and the development of alternative energies have led to a dramatic decline in the price of oil. Companies of all sizes involved in exploration and production (E&P) must now do more with less.

To increase productivity and build cost efficiencies, Elsevier R&D Solutions supports E&P companies with access to data and research solutions to locate new, profitable plays and optimize existing ones, and to develop new technological innovations using advanced materials and methods.

In addition, our intuitive solutions support the retention of institutional knowledge and reduce training time for employee onboarding — a key consideration with roughly 50% of the workforce retiring within the next 5 to 10 years.

Tools that Enhance Oil Production Precision and Efficiency

Using Elsevier’s geologic maps, metadata and engineering resources, oil and gas producers can increase precision and efficiency while ensuring that new and existing wells remain profitable. Gain access to the latest research and technology that can limit health and safety risks and positively impact an organization’s competitiveness.
