Gas and Oil Fields Exploration & Development


Gas and oil exploration is an expensive, high-risk operation, and is conducted primarily by national governments and/or large exploration companies. The following steps are custom-made for the exploration of oil and natural gas:

  • A high degree of knowledge is required - the carbonate environments entail carbonate platforms, high-energy shallows, restricted shoals, lagoons, inner shelves, bodies of organogenic reefs, perireef limestone, debrites and turbidites or allodapic limestone, and reef and perireef bioclastic limestone outside the carbonate platforms

  • Sedimentary process includes building, destruction, accumulation, sedimentation, and cementation.

  • Exploration tools are highly sophisticated geophysical methods (gravity, magnetic, passing through passive or regional seismic reflection surveys) to detect the existence and determine the extent of these anomalies in large-scale features of subsurface geology.

  • A prospect is identified and evaluated by exploration well drilling to conclusively confirm the presence/absence of oil and/or gas.

  • Well drilling, geophysical well logging, analysis, interpretation, resource/reserve estimation, and economic evaluation continue to declare a reservoir for production planning

Gas and Oil Fields Exploration & Development  chain consists of three streams:

  • upstream, which covers the exploration, development and production of oil and gas;

  • midstream, which includes the transportation of oil and gas by tanker;

  • downstream, which includes the refinement and sales processes.
