An understanding of the tectonic history of an area is an important step in the development of new play concepts and the assessment of geological opportunity in petroleum exploration. Gaining this understanding can be a lengthy procedure involving the assessment and synthesis of multiple datasets and public domain literature sources.
The new TectonicExplorer™ dashboard is the latest tool in the Neftex® Core Insights portfolio and is designed to reduce the time and resources required during this early stage of exploration. This cloud-hosted dashboard brings together the power of the high-resolution Neftex Geodynamic Plate Model, with extensive Neftex Insights interpreted wells, geochronology and mineral deposit databases in order to automatically generate and verify a tectonic events summary for any area of interest.
The TectonicExplorer dashboard presents any explorationist with a user-friendly interface from which a robust tectonic story can be created and verified instantly. It provides a solid foundation on which to build exploration workflows without the need for specialist skills and allows the end-user to maximise time spent on the decision making process.
