Using GOR and CO2 analyzes to support hard exploration

We are excited to announce we have now integrated GOR and CO2 maps into the platform, fluid properties that are essential to understanding exploration potential in offshore Brazil. When integrated with our massive geochemical and reservoir datasets, they become a key tool in validating petroleum system evaluations and O&G expectations, especially in the areas
