Anglo-Dutch explores for oil and gas in proven onshore and near shore areas in the United States utilizing new technologies with an experienced team of geoscientists. We integrate complex geologic information with highly specialized 3D seismic processing and interpretation. We employ attribute analysis, amplitude modeling and analysis, pore-fluid movement detection and various imaging technologies. This enables us to identify low-risk prospects and to detect oil filled traps.


Keys to our approach include

Risk Reduction & Hydrocarbon Types

In the past, tools could only indirectly identify potential traps and were limited to identifying productive gas zones. Risks were high and oil zones could not be detected. By utilizing newly developed technologies, we can directly detect both conventional oil and gas deposits with a commercial success rate of 75%.

Salt Domes

Salt domes along the upper U.S. Gulf Coast create excellent traps for oil and gas. There are over 500 salt domes along the Gulf Coast from Texas to the Florida panhandle. Most of the production was established from the 1930’s to the 1950’s at shallow depths on the tops of the salt domes. By reinterpreting the 3D seismic data over the salt domes using our new technologies, we can now map large accumulations of oil and gas previously undetectable throughout these areas.

Stratigraphic Traps

The Gulf Coasts of Louisiana and Texas are some of the most oil and gas rich regions of the world. Throughout these regions, most oil and gas is produced from structural traps related to salt domes and faulting. This is because structural traps are more easily identified with seismic than stratigraphic traps. Though hard to detect with geophysical processing and interpretation tools, stratigraphic traps have still produced hundreds of millions of barrels of oil equivalent. We believe there are more reserves waiting to be discovered in stratigraphic traps than have already been produced. Anglo-Dutch is able to locate stratigraphic traps of oil and gas by employing innovative seismic processing and interpretation.
