“They look for the shape of the glass.

We look for the champagne first and explain the shape of the glass later.”

ANE is developing a new oil and gas exploration methodology designed to reduce costs by increasing the accuracy of the drill-site selection process. Our concession in Namibia is in a frontier basin, where no previous exploration activity has taken place, and limited subsurface geological knowledge exists. In order to improve the chances of successful drilling, we have developed software to analyse 17 layers of satellite, aerial and surface exploration data to identify promising locations. By combining these individually weak sets of evidence we can build up a detailed picture of trap geometry and identify the most likely locations of hydrocarbon deposits.
