GEOSPATIAL SOLUTIONS FOR OIL AND GAS EXPLORATION

Remote sensing data and imagery collected by satellite and aerial sensors are powerful tools that help energy companies in both exploration and logistics. Auracle’s mapping, modeling and analysis improves the potential for efficient planning, successful discoveries and risk management.

PROCESS: Hydrocarbon seeps cause chemical and mineralogical changes at the surface which may indicate the presence of undiscovered oil and gas occurrences.  Auracle has successfully mapped alteration minerals and proxy indicators related to hydrocarbon seeps, even at small scales. We also analyze vegetation indicators with our indirect hydrocarbon detection methods.

 

USES: 

  • Cost effective exploration for hydrocarbons. 

  • Challenging geology or surface conditions.

 

BENEFITS: Our results complement conventional exploration methods such as gravity, geochemical, seismic and aeromagnetic surveys.

 

HYDROCARBON DETECTION

We fuse satellite data to disclose spatial information undetectable with traditional methods.

PROCESS: Auracle plans geophysical surveys and works with our clients to consider local and regional geology and specific site conditions and access. 

 

USES:

  • gather, interpret and map geophysical data

  • locate and map subsurface features

  • resolve survey and data challenges

 

BENEFITS: We work with clients to develop an approach that best suits the survey objectives, constraints and budget.

GEOPHYSICAL SURVEY PLANNING

Evaluate geological maps to prospect for oil and gas. 

PROCESS: Surface geologic mapping services to map or evaluate prospects for new oil and gas discoveries using our knowledge of regional to mine-scale mapping.

 

USES:

  • base mapping

  • structural mapping

  • regolith mapping

  • alteration mapping

 

BENEFITS: Auralce provides expert analytical support to solve specific issues such as hydrocarbon potential.

GEOLOGICAL MAPPING

Maps to evalute new prospects for oil and gas discovery.

ROUTE PLANNING

Optimize your pipeline route planning.

 PROCESS: Auracle’s customized web-based studies use high resolution satellite images and GIS to optimize routing.

 

USES: Pipeline route planning.

 

BENEFITS: Mitigate risks in pipeline route selection:

  • Geohazards

  • Topography

  • Engineering and design issues

  • Jurisdictional boundaries

  • Environmentally sensitive areas

PROCESS: Using 3-D Bare Rock Models, we integrate and align geological, geophysical and geochemical data sets.

 

USES: Locate geological hazards such as faults and landslides and reveal the location and type of resources such as gravel, sand, mineral deposits and ground water.

 

BENEFITS: Upgraded geological maps correct errors and discrepancies and can be refined as new geologic information becomes available.

 

GEOLOGICAL MAP UPGRADING

Upgrade maps, correct errors and locate hazards.

 

 

PROCESS: We fuse satellite data to disclose spatial information undetectable with traditional methods.

 

USES: Reveal structures, contacts and deposits so field work  stays focused on targets, Deepen and expand your search areas with Auracle’s 3D Radar Bare Rock Models.

 

BENEFITS: Penetrate overburden to disclose blind or non-outcrop mineralization in dimensions previously unseen. These models are an excellent base for ongoing situational monitoring.
