The Ross Exploration team consists of geoscientists with experience from all areas of the Norwegian Continental Shelf.
Ross Exploration Team has experience from the previous license
rounds with all from pre-screening of APA-licenses, area
evaluation of central area in Barents Sea, farm-in screening and
evaluations, and having the full responsibility of a license
application. License evaluations includes prospect evaluations,
with volume uncertainty analysis.
Exploration Strategy Advisory
Advisory on Exploration Strategy, procedures of license
application, government communication.
Mapping of larger areas, connecting areas and licenses together
for a better understanding of area. Correlating seismic data, well
log data and depth conversions.
Independent Business Development projects
Ross Offshore can run larger projects, evaluating multiple
regions for prospectivity, drainage solutions, farm-in
possibilities and development strategy. This work will require
multidisciplinary effort from explorationists, reservoir engineers,
production technology and will also benefit from Ross Offshore's
partners on development solutions and cost evaluations. The work
can both be related to upcoming license applications but also to
possible M&A (merger and acquisitions) activities.
Exploration 3D Geological illustrations of Plays
Ross Offshore has developed a new way of visualizing
paleogeological environments, using 3D-gaming platforms.
Illustrations can be used as part of the creative process in the
Exploration work, as a tool to visualize prospect ideas for
internal/external decision makers, and directly as illustrations in
Evaluation of the sealing of faults and cap rocks, to understand
the potential for HC leakage.
Analytical HC potential evaluation (source, migration)
Evaluation of available information on both source maturity and
migration possibilities, to evaluate the Hydrocarbon potential of
an area. Our understanding is that it is important to get and
overview of the HC potential of an area in the early phase of the
CCS - storage qualification
Ross Offshore has extensive experience from CCS, especially from
working with Gassnova. Ross Offshore has done extensive work both
related to screening and qualifying various reservoirs for storage
of CO2 and to understand and evaluate the development of CO2 ,
temperature and pressure in the reservoir.
