  • CGG Launches TopSeis - The Solution for Imaging Shallow Reservoirs

    CGG announced today at ONS 2016 the launch of TopSeis™, the latest evolution in offshore broadband seismic, specifically designed to overcome the intrinsic lack of near offsets inherent in 3D towed-streamer seismic. Exacerbated by the use of progressively wider spreads to meet the industry’s quest for greater efficiency, the lack of near offsets leads to an inability to image shallow ...

  • Revealing the hidden meaning in mass spectrometry images

    The National Physical Laboratory (NPL) worked with 20 laboratories across the globe to examine one of the most significant issues in Time-of-Flight Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry (ToF-SIMS): the matrix effect. A new algorithm has been developed to overcome this effect allowing for better analysis of images in the future. Gas cluster ion beams (GCIB) have profoundly advanced the analysis ...

  • Space tech helps to find natural resources

    Using space-based technology developed during ESA’s gravity mission studies, a novel gradiometer is being developed by a UK-based company to help oil and gas companies find the most appropriate locations to drill wells and plan further exploration. The gravity gradiometer measures the variations in the Earth’s gravity, or in technical terms, the ‘differential acceleration’. These variations ...

  • Computer simulations shed light on nanosized minerals

    The red and blue images appear ghostly, like a fleeting glimpse of something that’s never been seen before — which is true. Using computer simulations, Berkeley Lab scientists have developed the first predicted images of water molecules surrounding a nanoparticle, in this case an iron-oxide mineral called hematite. The simulations indicate that the size and shape of the nanosized mineral ...
