Actual Geology provides geophysical exploration services
for oil and gas companies since 1992.
are located in Saint-Petersburg, Russia and London, UK.
During exploration, appraisal and development of oil and gas fields with complex geology, such as fracturing permeability, low continuity of thickness and porosity formations, energy companies face an ever present problem of low drilling success.
Traditional exploration technologies such as seismic do not always accurately predict hydrocarbons saturation.
In a review of more than 2600 US and international wildcat wells - all drilled after completion of geochemical or non-seismic hydrocarbon detection surveys- more than 80% of wells drilled on prospects associated with positive hydrocarbon anomalies resulted in commercial discoveries; and only 11% of wells drilled on prospects not associated with such anomalies resulted in discoveries*.
Actual Geology can identify an active petroleum system in the exploration area, generate unique non-seismic leads for further geological and seismic evaluation and identify "sweet spots".
Our methods are non-invasive and have a minimal environmental impact.
