Samples are taken approx. 1 foot below the soil surface and are less than 1 cm3
Bacterial DNA is extracted, producing tagged 16S rDNA, translated to bacterial species
Using our existing database with known samples a correlation model is built
A prediction map is made which reduces drilling risks and only targets profitable sites
De-risk drilling of wells on/offshore. Accurate delineation services & rank prospects or well targets for less unsuccessful wells.
Maximize financial returns mapping shale productivity, pinpointing high producing areas, avoiding the drilling of uneconomic wells.
A direct hydrocarbon indicator that is very cost-effective compared to seismic exploration—and more accurate to traditional surface geochemistry.
> 70% accuracy in our pilot projects, with individual results being up to 98% accurate.
We have worked with active operators all over the world on successful pilot projects, with more projects planned.
Our method eliminates operations in non-productive areas, thus decreasing the environmental footprint.
