Useful data for unconventionals

Jonathan Watson, Bridgeporth’s Interpretation Manager, spoke recently at a Finding Petroleum event in London in October about the benefits of using potential field data in the exploration of unconventionals.  

Bridgeporth commences ERHC airborne gravity and magnetic survey in Chad

ERHC Energy Chad has announced the commencement of an airborne gravity and magnetic survey of BDS 2008 in Southern Chad flown by Bridgeporth Ltd. The acquired gravity and magnetic data covering North of Esso’s Tega and Maku discoveries in the Doseo basin and East of and on trend with OPIC’s Benoy-1 margin discovery in the Doba basin will also be processed and interpreted by Bridgeporth.

ERHC Energy Chad contracts Bridgeporth for airborne gravity and magnetic survey of BDS 2008 in Chad

ERHC Energy Chad has announced the award of a contract for acquisition, processing and interpretation of gravity/magnetic data of BDS 2008 in Chad to Bridgeporth Ltd. Bridgeporth will fly 4,720 line kilometers over BDS 2008 in southern Chad commencing in the third quarter of this year. The Block is located on the northern edge of the Doba and Doseo basin, the site of active exploration and development projects with discoveries exceeding 1,290 MMBOE. Bridgeporth’s survey will focus on two main areas: north of Esso’s Tega and Maku discoveries in the Doseo basin; and east of and on trend with OPIC’s Benoy-1 margin discovery in the Doba basin.

Bridgeporth advocates the use of Geosoft’s extensible software

Bridgeporth has an article in this month’s Geosoft Earth Explorer Magazine. Managing uncertainty: derisking oil exploration in complex environments, written by Dan Zlotnikov, highlights how Bridgeporth can help with managing risks in regions where there has been very little exploration due to security, political and security uncertainties.

Bridgeporth Featured in “Seismic Profile” Magazine

Bridgeporth was featured in the Winter 2013, Issue 6 of “Seismic Profile Magazine.” “A True Pioneer of Arctic Survey” is an article written by Rachel Braun about an Arctic expedition led by Tom Austin, the President and founder of Austin Exploration, in the late 1970’s. It highlights how far technology has progressed in the last 40 years alone, as he had to lead survey teams in the winter darkness without the aid of GPS. Tom is legendary in the industry for that trip–he identified 17 anticlines that were so big they didn’t know if they were looking at real or regional data. The second article, “Hunting for Elephants: Probabilistic Models of Risk Analysis and Uncertainty in Petroleum Exploration,” also by Rachel Braun, is an investigation on how oil and seismic companies use probability methods to assess prospects.
