Geofacets helps oil and gas companies do more with less

In today's unpredictable environment, successful oil and gas companies need to spend wisely, reduce geologic risks and improve success rates. Companies can no longer spend 80% of their time searching for and formatting information and data to make the best decisions.

How Geofacets makes a difference
Using Geofacets doubles efficiency and enables entire exploration and development teams to gain a deeper geologic understanding of petroleum systems and reservoir properties — which ultimately leads to better investment decisions. Geofacets combines a vast, vetted library of maps, figures, and tables with powerful location-based search targeting, so geoscientists find content fast and ahead of the competition. Geofacets also helps exploration teams build more confident 3D models of the subsurface, through integration to GIS, Petrel, and Excel for analysis.

Geofacets helps geoscientists to:
