Rapid subsurface analyses using seismic, core and well log data were used to produce calibrated seismic inversion products. Combined top quartile drilling of extended-reach and all-season wells enabled Salym Petroleum Development to dramatically increase its resource base in the last three years. While many prospects for further expansion were generated at a variety of stratigraphic levels, the expansion proved possible despite limited access to inorganic growth areas. At present, the hydrocarbon maturation funnel is filled at approximately 90 Mbbl/yr as a direct result of multi-disciplinary effort stretching from regional exploration geoscience to targeted and coordinated infrastructure construction.
