Northern Gulf of Mexico Structural Framework
Northern Gulf of Mexico Structural Framework
Drilling in the northern Gulf of Mexico continues at an impressive pace since its prospectivity continues to expand as greater depths are reached by the drilling technology. New Wilcox and Norphlet discoveries at 30,000+ depths are a frontier in exploration. Granted the discoveries are well above basement structure, but the statistics prove the basement structure has influences on the placement. Today seventy ...

Louisiana Shelf:  Timbalier Bay and Bay Marchand Salt Domes
Louisiana Shelf: Timbalier Bay and Bay Marchand Salt Domes
The configuration of the salt domes had come into question by the client.  The directive given to IGC was to determine the possibility and extent of the salt overhang. Several publications were available on the Bay Marchand and Timbalier Bay salt domes. All publications described the as deep seated salt domes. The top of salt was defined by approximately 320 well penetrations.  Only 1 well with a base of salt occurs on Bay Marchand Do...

Offshore Gabon
Offshore Gabon
A regional interpretation of western Offshore Gabon was based on an IGC interpretation of satellite-derived gravity data offshore and a compilation of published data offshore and onshore. The Regional Geologic Features map featured in this report shows a series of basins and high blocks trending sub parallel to and subnormal to the coastline. Numerous fault/fracture zones extend northeast from oceanic crust areas of the South Atlantic ...

Custom

IGC’s reputation has been built on the quality and usability of our custom interpretations for clients. Each project is designed to accomplish the directive given by the client. To help the client visualize results clearly, we will design and tune data to the most appropriate final map views. We provide your output and data in whatever format you require.

For more information see the Library.

Packages

IGC’s multi-client or non-exclusive packages are an effective way to benefit from selected components of our experience. We’ve worked a lot of places and we’ve used that region- and area-specific experience to develop non-exclusive integrated interpretation packages for the Continental U.S., Gulf of Mexico and select basins around the globe.

For more information see the Library.

Assessment

We understand you want results, not just information. Clients get a thorough assessment of every issue associated with an engagement before we ever create a proposal. We confirm that the interpretation, as proposed can give you the results you want. We want to make sure it is realistic and that it fits within the constraints you must deal with in your organization.

For more information see the Library.

Technology

To get the most out of your data, IGC utilizes various commercial and proprietary software packages. We follow industry best practices in applying the tools, and add our own experience in optimizing them. To help clients manage their inventory of interpretations and data, we have developed a proprietary data-management solution called VIDL® Visual Interactive Data Library.

For more information see the Library.

Data Management

The type and quality of data affect outcome of the project. Many factors influence the quality of data such as the instrumentation used and how it is maintained; the position reference sources and their accuracy; and the skill of the crew collecting survey data. For the best results, you need a team that is intimately familiar with the strengths of the survey companies and the quality and idiosyncrasies of existing data sets.

For more information see the Library.

Geophysics

Our techniques, tools and knowledge create value. Execution is as important as planning. There are proven practices that get the most from whatever software or tools you want to use. Those practices come from the collective published knowledge of the science and the unique experience of our interpreters. Correlative knowledge of area geology is critical to interpretation.

For more information see the Library.

Multi-Science

Integrated, multi-science interpretations now represent the state of the art because of the detail and confidence they provide. Geophysics has proven its value in both identifying areas of interest within a broad region and in clarifying structure in specific areas. In some situations the geosciences are the only way to get a reliable picture of a prospective structure.

For more information see the Library.

Products

A project is defined as a series of 2D and/or 3D products interpreted to resolve the geophysical/geological problem at hand. Some examples of final product would be: Integrated Interpretation Maps, Data Enhancement Maps, 2D Structural Model Profiles, and 3D Earth Model. We also provide a project summary or project report as either a paper copy or a PDF digital copy.

For more information see the Library.

Results

Helping decision makers understand what you’ve found is key. Your interpretation is valuable only to the extent that decision makers can understand it. They may have diverse professional backgrounds and their understanding of the sciences may vary widely. We work with clients to generate the presentation elements that will be most meaningful to their internal audience. Our hallmark is that each presentation will honor the integrity of the data and reflects only the results from the data.
