Conventional petroleum systems require some unconventional approaches otherwise potentially productive areas can be easily overlooked. Our expertise in hydrocarbon generation and quality assessments help identify traps with high economic return, while avoiding uncharged traps or traps with leaky seals. We have detailed experience in the Gulf of Mexico and various basins in North and South America, Africa (Maende et al. 2003), Middle East, Europe, Asia, Southeast Asia, Australia, and New Zealand.
Worldwide Geochemistry is the global leader in unconventional shale resource play and prospect evaluation. We demonstrate the best areas for either oil or gas production from tight shales, tight gas sands, hybrid systems, and shallow basin methane. Our shale-gas system experience includes the Barnett (e.g., Montgomery et al., 2005; Jarvie et al., 2007), Woodford, Fayetteville, Bossier, Haynesville, Marcellus, New Albany, Antrim, Muskaw, and Montney shales. In shale-oil systems, we have had success demonstrating oil resources in the Antelope (Jarvie et al., 1995), Bakken (Jarvie, 2001; Jarvie et al., 2011), Eagle Ford (Jarvie, 2007), Wolfcamp, Avalon, Woodford, Niobrara (Jarvie, 2012), Utica (Jarvie, 2012), TMS (Jarvie, 2012) and Duvernay oil discoveries and development. We also identified similar prospects that did not exhibit the ‘right’ properties and warned clients of the higher risk of certain plays.
