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.
