Spend your time picking prospects, not preparing data
Data is a vital resource, particularly when you have major licensing decisions to make.
The challenges lie in sorting through the masses of available data and then making it easier to access and get started.
KADME, CAMA GeoScience, SXICOM and Rocktype have teamed up to provide interpretation teams with smooth and rapid access to data from the Awards in Predefined Areas.
The matched and merged continuous datasets are being put together by high-profile industry experts with extensive experience of the Norwegian Continental Shelf. To extend coverage and maximize value, each dataset will feature merged 2D/3D seismic data, velocity models, fault and well interpretations, and core sample analyses.
We will provide a matched and merged dataset for the Barents Sea in April; those for the Norwegian and North seas will follow.
Users can purchase complete datasets for one, two or all three areas. The merged data will be delivered directly in an easy-to-access format (Petrel or DUG) that minimizes data handling time and lets you start analyzing prospects immediately.
The datasets are delivered in Petrel and DUG for seismic, well data and velocity models. We can also provide support to ensure rapid seismic data loading. Our aim is to deliver what you need for a ready-to-go project for basin modeling and detailed prospect interpretation and evaluation.
High quality seismic with maximum coverage
Released 2D and 3D seismic datasets matched for maximum coverage and quality
3D surveys merged into 25m x 25m grid where applicable
Original geometry used on stranded 3Ds and 2D lines
2D lines used to tie the stranded 3Ds
2D lines spliced where applicable
Velocity data provided as a 1000m x 1000m grid every 100ms
New velocity model combined with check shots using DUG depth conversion to deliver depth-converted seismic data
Additional services include merging and matching with proprietary seismic datasets and project setup.

Interpretation of 100 exploration wells in the Barents Sea
Petrophysical (CPl) interpretation of the 100 exploration wells
Mud logs and mud gas data
Logs, Vcl, ø, Sw, check shot and deviation
Detailed salinity (Rw) maps
Calculated porosity is calibrated to measured core porosity
Interpreted NPD tops
Detailed core analyses of petrophysical properties, mineralogy and textures
Rocktype will deliver an extensive petrographic study of Barents Sea exploration wells using QEMSCAN technology.
1000 core samples analyzed with QEMSCAN at 50 μm for precise mineralogy and porosity values and calibration of log values, including Vcl, gamma, density and ø
50 samples analyzed at 4 μm for detailed textural information enabling study of grain shape, pore size distribution and pore lining phases
The mineralogy distribution and porosity information will be provided per sample in an Excel tabular format. The images of mineral maps will come in PNG format and will be organized in directories by well. Each image will have sample ID, well, depth and a scalebar printed on it and sample ID, well and depth in the filename.
