Opportunity Identification & Prospect Evaluation - Exploration & Production | Elsevier

Opportunity Identification & Prospect Evaluation

Identifying commercially viable petroleum systems is critical for growing reserves and meeting short- and long-term global energy demands. We help exploration teams better understand the geologic evolution, development and subsurface geologic, geochemical and geophysical characteristics to make better interpretations and recommendations for further investment and exploration.

Drilling & Completions Engineering

Effective design and development of upstream projects minimizes exposure to operational and technical risks. In addition, employing the best engineering technologies and equipment reduces drilling time and costs, improves production and recovery of resource, and mitigates against potential HSE impacts, reducing overall operating costs. Drilling and completion engineers have access to high quality, reliable, comprehensive engineering information, enabling them to identify and develop the best technologies and practices to meet project timelines and costs without compromising business risk.
