Unconventional Reservoirs

As new hydrocarbon reserves become more difficult to locate, explorationists are turning to unconventional reservoirs. One way to address these challenges is by applying new technologies and approaches to gain a better understanding of a reservoir.

Unconventional reservoirs can include:

  • Shale plays
  • Tight sands
  • Carbonates
  • Oil sands/heavy oils
  • Coal Bed Methane (CBM)

ION offers a wide range of interpretation services to match your business and exploration requirements. Many of the fracture detection, attribute analysis, and inversion technologies can be used to reduce costs and risks in these plays. With the majority of our geoscientists and engineers having an average of 25+ years of experience, we can help you address the challenges inherent in exploring unconventional resources.
