Technical Description

A short technical description is provided to introduce major aspects of the Oil & Gas exploration, development and production processes.

Shale Oil & Gas

Shale oil and gas refers to oil and natural gas 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

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

Wellsite selection involves an intensive review to ensure optimum design and minimum footprint.

Hydrocarbon Field Drilling

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.

Hydraulic Stimulation

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.

Hydrocarbon Field Development

At BNK Petroleum we believe in adhering to, promoting and continually improving environmentally sound practices during all operations.
