Collective knowledge of highly qualified geoscientists all in one place
The search for information and data regarding the Brazilian sedimentary basins can be a daunting task. The BPS Geodatabase, containing the most-advanced and comprehensive information and data related to Brazil’s petroliferous basins, is the best tool to enable you and your team to produce the insights necessary to make smarter decisions than with other data providers. Our broad data collection is composed of well data (geological, geophysical and geochemical), radarsat satellite oil slick and deep-water piston core data information, and petroleum systems modeling basin analysis. All the information is seamlessly integrated into a single web application and interpretations can be made in just a few easy steps.
Our data set contains more than 1,000 carefully selected representative oil samples and source-rock data collected from the most prolific Brazilian basins. Besides bulk, elemental, carbon isotope and geochemical classical analytical (e.g. Bulk, elemental, TOC, Rock-Eval, carbon isotopes, GC and GC–MS) data, our Geodatabase also includes biomarkers for saturates and aromatic compounds of more than 600 oils. Our data includes interpretations regarding origin, source, thermal evolution, biodegradation and oil mixing.
In addition, for selected oil samples, we apply (together with Biomarker Technology) proprietary technologies such as age–related analysis (GC–MS–MS) and quantitative diamondoids analysis (QDA). These methods provide data that addresses maturity/oil cracking and can signal whether the oils found in the reservoirs are a product of a mixture of hydrocarbons or not. When a mixed-oil accumulation is determined by this method, it opens a whole new way of looking at the petroleum system elements and processes, suggesting the presence of multiple sources or, at least, a wide range of maturity of the fluid charges that have reached the reservoirs.
Also, BPS in the only company that has data from Compound Specific Isotope Analysis of Biomarkers and Diamondoids (CSIA-Bh and CSIA–D) and quantitative extended diamondoids analysis (QEDA) in its database. These new and proprietary methods are only available through our associated laboratories and reveal hidden complexities of Petroleum Systems not seen using conventional techniques.
The Geodatabase also has a Developer Docs section specifically for data managers. It is the right place for those looking for automated ways of extracting data from our database. The BPS Geodatabase can be integrated with many environments and programming languages via our RESTful API. The API was originally designed to aid developers and data management teams in helping their G&G groups to easily integrate our data asset into their preferred working platform.
