Geochemical Analysis - Exploration
The BIG-Method (Biologic - Isotopic - Geochemical) is a new developed surface exploration method for hydrocarbons.
Surface-near or in sediments stored hydrocarbons from the underground can be identified and characterised by BIG . Additionally, he lateral extent of accumulations and the type and quality of hydrocarbons is identified. A main advantange offers the multi - disciplinary approach of the method where three different, undependant hydrocarbon signatures form the underground are investigated. Interpretation of the data base and modelling leads to a ranking order of proposed well sites.
BIG Exploration Tool:
Integrates three different HC - Indications from the Underground:
The data base delivers information for the oil exploration about the genetic history of hydrocarons and wether or not a given seismic structure is filled with gas or oil.
The "dry – hole – risk“ is significantly reduced. BIG complements exploration projects with important information about the hydrocarbon habitat before drilling!
BIG and parts of the method were applied worldwide in many on-shore and off-shore exploration projects for different oil companies:
