Governments prepare onshore or offshore basins or territories for license auctions requiring definition of the geology, basin structures, lineaments and fluid migration paths. TerraScan can provide “signature” extractions for regional prospective basins or for entire countries. The result of 2D profiles and 3D maps for hydrocarbons, minerals, geothermal hot spots or potable water reserves provide insights for quantity and quality for the following steps of the exploration de-risking and decision-making process. A typical project can be presented in 4-6 weeks. The resulting maps are typically produced on scales 1:1,000,000 or 1:500,000.
Investor oil companies want to understand a concession area in terms of geology, tectonic structures and prospectivity. TerraScan provides the information necessary to indicate whether resources are available, their prospective locations, quantify the potential and levels of risk involved. 3D structural maps can be provided on a 1 km x 1 km profile grid basis can be provided in a manner comparable to seismic data. Definition of Prospective structures may lead to justification of drilling of exploratory wells. A typical project can be completed in 6-12 weeks. The resulting maps are typically presented on scale 1:200,000 or 1:100,000. Typical clients are looking for hydrocarbon, geothermic or mining licenses.
More specific investors in traditional industrial companies may be looking for sourcing of raw material and strategic buying relations of key material in order to guarantee supply/price hedging over longer periods of time. TerraScan is able to analyse and and find new locations for resource definition and extraction. Regional partnerships could be formed to bundle the interest of several parties involved along the value chain. Typical resources looked for in the mineral commodities sector are Cobalt, Lithium, Nickel, Precious metals, Manganese, Chromite and Graphite.
Operators work on a field or prospect with local blocks and tectonics, prospective structures and mining layouts. The results provided are structural maps for oil, gas, minerals or geothermal energy potential and projected well locations. The estimated time for such a project depends on the target. The resulting maps are typically on scale 1:50,000 or 1:10,000.
