A short technical description is provided to introduce major aspects of the Oil & Gas exploration, development and production processes.
Shale gas refers to natural gas, predominantly methane, that is trapped within shale formations. These shales are typically fine-grained sedimentary rocks that can be rich sources of petroleum and natural gas.
Seismic exploration is the search for commercially economic subsurface deposits of crude oil, natural gas and minerals by the recording, processing, and interpretation of artificially induced acoustic wave energy in the earth.
Wellsite selection involves an intensive review to ensure optimum design and minimum footprint.
Drilling is the process of perforating the earth’s surface and rock layers to great depths to extract fossil fuels, or shale gas, for energy production.
This is the completion phase for shale gas extraction. Hydraulic stimulation is injecting water, sand and additives into shale formations thus allowing gas to flow properly. Effective well design, per our Standards of Excellence removes all potential environmental risks associated with drilling.
