Geofacets: Uncovering Diverse Insights
Getting accurate geologic information fast helps make faster workflow and smarter decisions
For geographic areas where an exploration team has little proprietary knowledge, ramp up time is a long, arduous and tedious process. But increasingly, best–in–class oil and and gas teams are leveraging Geofacets to fill in the knowledge gaps, accelerate their exploration efforts, and improve overall productivity.
Oil and gas exploration teams pursuing new ventures opportunities require diverse sets of geologic information. Geologic maps, in particular, are one of the most valued tools because they provide a variety of data about the surface and subsurface, offer scientific insights across geologic topics, helping geoscientists understand an area's geological characteristics. However, finding, evaluating, and formatting useful data is often difficult and time-consuming. Additionally, geographic areas in which an exploration team has little proprietary knowledge requires long, tedious ramp up time.
Today, best–in–class oil and gas teams are leveraging Geofacets to fill in knowledge gaps, accelerate their exploration efforts and format data more efficiently. Whether it's characterizing geologic basins, gathering scientific support to prioritize prospects, or maintaining up–to–date knowledge of a region of interest, the maps, figures and tables available in Geofacets are critically important in new ventures exploration. And with its location-based search capabilities, Geofacets enables geoscientists to easily focus in on specific areas of interest — which helps ensure that exploration teams have a comprehensive overview of the maps and data available. Geofacets also allows teams to target smaller areas while cutting expenditures on third party information such as seismic data and well data.
"If we need to download, scan and georeference 500 maps without Geofacets, that would be weeks of work. But with Geofacets, it takes us 10% of the time." Senior Geologist at DPA E&P Norway
While identifying and prioritizing new ventures opportunities always present challenges to O and G exploration teams, utilizing Geofacets helps geoscientists maintain focus on analyzing the information rather than on searching and formatting it. It not only supercharges their workflow but empowers them to make more informed decisions — which makes all the difference when it comes to answering multi-million dollar questions.
"Geofacets has a huge database, which is very powerful. I don't have to worry about georeferencing, and I don't have to worry about metadata — both of which Geofacets does very well." Senior Geologist at DPA E&P Norway
