Innovative Solutions for the Geoscientist by Integrating Geological & Geophysical Expertise

Our unique technology – DIG DEEP – predicts rock properties away from well control guided by rock physics

Our generic rock-physics based tools for subsurface characterization can be applied throughout the lifetime of fields, from frontier exploration and appraisal, to resource mapping and production monitoring (4D) in mature fields.

The approach can also be applied for CO2 monitoring, mapping shallow geohazard, analyzing geothermal aquifers, and other studies that require subsurface insight.

About us

The DIG team was founded in February 2018 by a hardcore exploration team with average industry and tech experience of 20+ years. The team consists of experts within rock physics, AVO analysis, quantitative seismic inversion, reservoir prediction, petroleum system analysis, seismic interpretation, data science and software development – all important elements for creating exploration value.

With our long exploration history within oil companies in combination with R&D experience from academia and seismic service industry, we develop and implement new and innovative solutions on how to optimize what we do best

– get the most value out of the seismic and well data

– find oil and gas

We aim to create sustainable exploration value and efficiency by combining our in-depth knowledge with the advances of new technology.

The Team

The team has extensive exploration experience and is available for special studies and consultancy work.

Give us a problem, and we will solve it!
