Petroleum exploration involves a high risk investment, where decisions are made under significant uncertainty. One way of reducing exploration risk is to examine different aspects of the dynamics of sedimentary basins to determine how past conditions have affected potential petroleum system.
The Tectonor team, all PhD, consists of highly experienced geologists/geophysicists with particular expertise in solving problems related to complex processes that take place in a sedimentary basin. We use both commercial and specialized in-house software in our services, which among others include basin analysis with structural reconstruction, reconstruction of 3D surfaces including tilting due to glaciations and glacial isostasy, and assessment of the likelihood for fault leakage.
Our services can assist in reducing the risk in exploration of sedimentary basins affected by tectonic processes, such as glaciations, magmatic intrusions, salt diapirism, and more.
