NEOS GeoSolutions, Inc. has completed a neoSCAN study over an approximately 20,000 km2 area of investigation (AOI) along the South Atlantic Margin. As part of this project, NEOS integrated and simultaneously interpreted several existing geological and geophysical datasets to map the regional geology and hydrocarbon prospectivity in an AOI that included both onshore and offshore acreage. The legacy geo-datasets that NEOS analyzed included several airborne geophysical measurements as well as sparsely sampled well and seismic information.
Chris Friedemann, Chief Commercial Officer for NEOS, commented, 'We're delighted to have delivered the results for this project along the South Atlantic Margin, one of the world's most prospective hydrocarbon provinces. To accelerate our time-to-delivery and contain project costs in a very large area of investigation, we relied upon existing geoscience data for our interpretation. In a period of roughly 100 days, we were able to highlight some of the key geologic features driving prospectivity in the area and identify the most prospective locations for future exploration and development.
