All of the information gathered in the exploration process must be pulled together in the interpretation of seismic data. The task of interpreting seismic data requires a broad range of skills and knowledge that must tie information at the basin scale to the prospect and wellbore scale. SIGMA³ provides a comprehensive suite of interpretation services that are designed to use all of the geophysical, sedimentological and structural information to provide the client with a superior interpretive product.
3D Seismic Interpretation
Robust 3D seismic interpretation forms the basis for nearly all of the analysis that leads to the discovery of new reserves. SIGMA³ senior interpretation geophysicists have worked a wide range of basins around the world and can deliver interpretation solutions in the most complex geologic settings. Integration with the full suite of SIGMA³ capabilities in seismic analysis and petrophysical analysis, provide you with a high-end integrated product that can meet your most challenging needs.
Prospecting for hydrocarbons requires that each component of the hydrocarbon system be viable. SIGMA³ geophysical staff have many years of experience prospecting for hydrocarbons around the world, and we offer this experience base to our clients for developing quality prospects that will assure your success. When integrated with our expertise and technology in geopressure prediction, direct detection of hydrocarbons and seismic attribute analysis, SIGMA³ delivers the highest quality prospect analysis available.
Regional & Basin Studies
A complete understanding of the hydrocarbon system starts with robust regional and basin-scale analysis of the subsurface. Our basin-scale analysis and regional studies include the services of our SIGMA³ associates who are recognized as experts in each aspect of hydrocarbon systems analysis, including: (1) source rock and maturation, (2) hydrocarbon migration, (3) seal analysis, (4) reservoir analysis and (5) structure and trap evaluation. Our experts integrate these 5 critical factors to determine whether a basin contains a viable hydrocarbon system, and assist our clients in identifying the most prospective areas in the basin.
SIGMA³ offers our expertise to clients for the evaluation of assets that they are planning to divest or considering for acquisition. We provide an impartial second-party assessment of assets that will meet your requirements for their most important business decisions.
Structural Modeling & Analysis
In complex geologic settings, sound structural modeling and analysis are essential to understanding the deformation and stress history of the basin or prospect. SIGMA³ offers expert solutions in structural modeling and analysis through several of our associates who are recognized internationally for their expertise in structural geology and stress analysis. These experts provide the analysis of structural information and the integration of this information into the overall project.
Depositional Systems Analysis
The characterization of reservoirs requires the application of seismic stratigraphy and deposition systems analysis. The goal of this analysis is to understand the provenance, architecture and connectivity of the reservoir units in the subsurface. The detailed mapping of the reservoir allows the interpreter to understand better how the reservoir will perform and allows improved placement of exploration, exploitation and production wells.
