Basin Modeling as a Fundamental Tool at BPS

In order for our clients to gain a better understanding of the geology and petroleum systems around Brazilian, we are preparing extensive regional evaluation reports for inclusion in the BPS Geodatabase. Many of the reports have already been uploaded as petroleum systems charts that provide a full summary of the geological history, as well

BPS Geodatabase Update

As part of our continuous efforts to improve the BPS Geodatabase and provide our subscribers with a dynamic knowledge-based exploration tool, 10 new wells with in-depth oil geochemistry analysis are slated for inclusion this week. The results are currently passing through quality-control checks and interpretation before being uploaded and published under the Change Log.

Recent wells drilled in the Brazilian pre-salt

Over the last 15 months, 75 wells have been drilled in the Santos, Campos and Espírito Santo basins, including 13 exploration wells. The drilling of new exploration wells can be seen as the rebirth of exploration in the pre-salt province. During the downturn in the oil industry in 2014-2018, only

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

Maturity in your exploration decisions

BPS has a long track record in the integration of all available data via a holistic petroleum system-related approach. In fact, this is something we pride ourselves on, constantly striving to provide our clients with the most complete picture of Brazilian petroleum systems on the market.  After years of building

Making Your Exploration Decisions Easier

An important quality control step for petroleum system evaluation is to compare the fetch areas with the general framework of sedimentary basins. This is commonly achieved by creating a numerical model that simulates nature through reality checks of each petroleum system element and process. The input elements must be supported

Chrono-Litho: A key step in any petroleum system study

Despite not being based on the most high-tech analytical data, our chrono-lithostratigraphic dataset is still a very powerful tool to guide petroleum system studies, especially for understanding the organization of the stratigraphic frameworks and characterizing the spatial and temporal distribution of the source-rock and reservoir sequences of the Brazilian sedimentary

A Petroleum Scientist’s Best Friend Vol. III: QEDA

Continuing the saga of utilizing Advanced Geochemistry Technology (AGT) to piece together the puzzle of oil mixture composition and confirm the origin of the deep hydrocarbon charges in the oil mixtures of the Santos and Sergipe-Alagoas Basin, this week we are taking a deeper look at Quantitative Extended Diamondoid Analysis (QEDA), Biomarker

Revisiting the eastern area of the pre-salt

We are excited to announce our new study using a petroleum system-based assessment methodology to revisit the eastern area of the pre-salt province due to its potential for undiscovered oil resources and probable high demand in the next ANP bidding rounds. We are confident that the industry will recover fast and
