HYDROCARBON POTENTIAL OF EGYPT GIS ADVISER – RECENTLY UPDATED BY LYNX

Lynx Information Systems and Fairway Exploration have recently completed an update of their GIS Database and Report on the Hydrocarbon Exploration Potential of Egypt, identifying new plays and leads in the areas of currently open acreage.

The Lynx/Fairway GIS Database and Hydrocarbon Evaluation of Egypt presents an extensive database and a comprehensive review of the exploration potential of Egypt. GIS-Based exploration portfolio management processes and tools have been used to organize the database so that it is able to support the exploration workflow at any stage from basin analysis and initial play generation, through data acquisition and on to the identification of leads and their maturation into drillable prospects. The  project contains a considerable amount of new information and interpretation. New play maps illustrating the distribution of the major source, reservoir and seal facies that make up the hydrocarbon systems in each basin have been produced. Play Fairway Maps have been generated from these data to which exploration risk parameters have been applied to develop maps suitable for undertaking Risk Analysis. In addition to the GIS and Report the database includes composite and electric logs, SEGY data and tops, reservoir and geochemistry data for over 900 wells in the area.

If you would like more information, or would like to arrange a live demonstration, then please contact us on 0208 780 2634 or email lynx@lynxinfo.co.uk.

Iran Petroleum Contract and New E&P Opportunities in Iran

Following the news of a positive conclusion to negotiations in Vienna between Iran and the P5+1 group of countries, international oil companies are once again expected to turn their attention towards E&P opportunites in Iran just as soon as sanctions are fully lifted.

The Iranian Ministry of Petroleum, together with the National Iranian Oil Company (NIOC), has already devised a new set of terms for encouraging investment from foreign companies, in a new format being presented to industry called the Iran Petroleum Contract (IPC).

40+ field development projects have already been marked for investment as part of the IPC: The map beneath provides a snapshot of these project areas.

NIOC priority projects 1&2

Lynx offers a comprehensive Exploration Adviser GIS dataset for Iran with an associated Hydrocarbon Evaluation report, combining results from historic seismic and drilling programmes with interpreted maps, field data, and summary field sheets with coverage over these IPC project areas. Please contact us for further details.

William Smith’s Maps – Interactive Website Launched at The Geological Society with special guest speaker Sir David Attenborough, and Lynx’s Peter Wigley

The Geological Society of London officially kicked off a year-long programme of events in celebration of the 200th anniversary of the publication of William Smith’s map “A delineation of the strata of England and Wales with part of Scotland” in 1815, with the launch of the William Smith’s Maps – Interactive website. William Smith’s map was the worlds first geological map, created by the surveying efforts and geological insights of William Smith and the first practical application of the principles of lithostratigraphy and biostratigraphy.

The launch event was held in Burlington House on 23rd March, coinciding with what would have been William Smith’s (often referred to as the “Father of English Geology”) birthday. It was attended by Sir David Attenborough, who unveiled a plaque at Smith’s former London home, and also introduced the new interactive website, www.strata-smith.com, which allows users to view all the known surviving editions of the Smith Map, overlay with modern geology. Smith’s cross sections can also be viewed in comparison with modern seismic data.

The development of this website was sponsored by UKOGL, and developed by Lynx Information Systems. The website has been specifically developed to host a number of fine examples of William Smith’s 1815 map, and is a free -to-all educational resource designed for teachers, students, academics and anybody with an interest in the life and work of William Smith.

Using Lynx’s expertise and experience has enabled the website to feature many great things such as a ‘live’ interactive map viewer. This enables users to not only view the maps but also to overlay one against another and compare them with modern geology, wells, seismic sections (using Lynx’s online SEG-Y viewer), and current topographic maps. Users can also display Smith’s geological sections and view 3D animations of his maps.

Lynx’s very own Peter Wigley gave a fantastic demonstration of the Strata-Smith website during the launch.

Egypt 2015 bid rounds – EGAS and Ganope

Egypt is looking to attract further investment into its exploration scene with the recent opening of two bid rounds:

Ganoub El Wadi Holding Petroleum Company (Ganope) was first to announce its latest bid round in December 2014, and has recently extended the closing date for bids until 31st May 2015. The offer involves 10 blocks located in areas around the southern tip of the Gulf of Suez and the Eastern Desert. Visit the Ganope website for further details.

The second, more recently announced by Egyptian Natural Gas Holding Company (EGAS), involves eight blocks located offshore in the Nile Delta region, and also has a closing date of 31st May 2015. Visit the EGAS website.

Block polygons for both bid rounds can be viewed and downloaded from our Interactive Licensing Round Map

Lynx Information Systems Ltd and partner Fairway Exploration have recently undertaken an extensive review of exploration results and activity in Egypt over the past three years, which although subdued in part by political turmoil, has yielded further insights into it’s hydrocarbon potential. These results have been incorporated into a 2015 version of our Egypt Exploration Adviser GIS, for which more information is detailed here and also Egypt_Flyer_2015.

Please contact us for further information or for a detailed presentation of this comprehensive exploration dataset.
