Archimedes News
This is a Recent Annoubcement from one of our clients: NORTH PERTH BASIN OIL & GAS (MGL 50%) A second round of stratigraphic and structural mapping over a new area of EP494 has been commissioned from Archimedes Consulting. This desktop work uses public domain magnetic data. It is a time and cost efficient process for defining areas of interest, without requiring any on ground activity and helps avoid timely and costly land access issues. This work is the main requirement for meeting the year 2 work program which expires in May, 2017. MGL is on track to meet its’ work program and cost commitments. Once sufficient targets have been generated, more conventional work can follow such as seismic surveys, with the aim of defining compelling drill ready targets. MGL can then elect to drill these or seek out a hydrocarbon specialist to farm into the project. Archimedes contributed to an edition of the GEO ExPro App, ‘New Technologies’.
  • Welcome to Archimedes

    Archimedes’ core service is the processing and interpretation of magnetic, gravity and gradiometry data using its unique techniques for the petroleum exploration and development industry.

    Archimedes began in Australia and initially performed work in Australia, New Zealand and PNG for clients such as Woodside Energy, Santos, Oil Company of Australia, Apache Energy and Origin Energy, covering many basins throughout the region.

    Archimedes has expanded considerably into the international arena, working for clients such as Shell (in several locations), BP (In several locations), Hess and many others in basins around the United Kingdom, Western Siberia, Mongolia, North & South America, Gulf of Mexico, Gulf of Suez, Nile Delta, Red Sea, Libya, Morocco, Gabon, Ethiopia, Mozambique, Malaysia, Vietnam and Indonesia. Archimedes’ head office is in Adelaide, Australia and it has a satellite office in Cairo, Egypt.

    The traditional mindset has considered magnetics and gravity suitable only for regional studies and then primarily in the minerals industry. However, Archimedes’ unique processing and interpretation techniques, with resolution and detail far superior to traditional approaches, are now routinely being applied in the petroleum industry to more focussed areas where seismic is not of good quality or simply not available.
