Crude oil and natural gas are both found underground at considerable depths and are concealed in layers of rock. Many of the reservoirs containing these resources are found below the sea or in locations that are difficult to get to, such as in the arctic.
In order to identify new reservoirs of crude oil and natural gas, it is essential to understand how these resources are formed so that the geology of potential areas can be analyzed and results interpreted, providing a vital indication of any resources contained in any given area.
At Refined Shale Gas, our expert geologists have both a practical and academic understanding of these resources, leveraging our advanced technologies to explore areas, survey the geography, interpret results and provide accurate estimations.
4D Seismic Imaging
Innovations and pioneering technology can propel and drive industries forward, providing tools to increase efficiency and understanding. The recent advent of 4D seismic imaging has done just that for the resource exploration industry.
Now, instead of only being able to obtain a very simple, static image of what’ beneath the ground, we are able to observe changes to different structures, ground composition and various formations over time. 4D imaging essentially provides a time-lapse picture of what is underground.
Multiple seismic readings of a specific location are taken at different times. This data is then later input into a super computer with the images integrated to essentially create a video of what is going on and what has gone on under the ground, allowing geologists to gain a detailed understanding of the earth’ properties, makeup, viscosity, saturation and temperature.
The only way that miners, excavators and operators can reach oil and gas that is deep under demanding, solid rock formations is by advanced drilling techniques, knowledge and equipment.
Whether they are carrying out an exploratory drilling operation or looking to begin production, precise drilling must be extensively planned so that the drill enters at the accurate and most stable point of a reservoir.
We at Refined Shale Gas have skilled, trained professionals in every area of an operation to ensure that our drilling is sustainable, safe and efficient. We also the most advanced drilling, surveying and production equipment and machinery to guarantee effective operations.
