Generate New Exploration Ideas
Subsurface geological analogues should form an integral part of your prospect maturation workflow to help reduce exploration uncertainty. Whilst individual plays and prospects are never identical, key learnings can be transferred both within and between basins and therein lies the power of analogues. Commercially successful analogue fields can be used to both develop new ideas in mature basins and in the application of established ideas to frontier basins. ‘Discovery thinking’ requires an open mind supported by detailed global knowledge of what is possible and what is proven.
