Evaluating whether an economically viable resource exists is a challenge in oil and gas exploration. Teams may have only a fraction of the information they need for a complete analysis and it's not enough for companies to make their most strategic decisions. Therefore, significant knowledge gaps must be filled in before a firm can commit to expensive drilling and development.


Today, geoscientists have found a new way to unlock some of the answers. With Geofacets, they can search easily–discoverable geologic maps, figures, tables, associated data and scientific articles from leading publishers instead of having to rely on standard search engines and open source publishers. In fact, using Geofacets is so much more effective, it's estimated to save up to 25% of project time — which is time better invested in additional projects.

"With other search engines, you could very easily miss keywords that you hadn't though about using. A lot of the useful content that I found in Geofacets, I would not have thought about looking for." Exploration Geologist


Exploration teams may never have all the information they would like, but Geofacets quickly provides answers to many unknown parts. This saves time, improves reliability, increases productivity and helps build collaboration with GIS, business development and license teams. Ultimately, by filling in knowledge gaps with Geofacets, companies can make much more strategic investment decisions overall.
