Basin Dynamics was formed to fill a niche in the area of understanding process sedimentology and reservoir architecture in deep-water depositional systems from deltaic environments to basin floor.  The company pioneers methods and services to reduce uncertainty pertaining to some of the main risks in oil & gas drilling.  Basin Dynamics offers interpretation services for the global oil and gas industry, leads training courses for industry professionals, and participates in North American exploration and exploitation drilling programs.

Observation is key.

For years, coarse-scale stratigraphic observation has been sufficient to address industry challenges – especially in deep-water reservoirs.  In E&P drilling today, the specificity of the detailed questions requires higher resolution data.  Basin Dynamics has created multiple platforms to help you quickly, accurately, and precisely characterize and quantify your reservoir.  We want to help you add value by improving your subsurface characterization, reservoir models, and well placement.
