Our solutions are focused on increasing the asset value through integration of heliometric data
The Heliometric data prepared by Actual Geology becomes another layer of useful geological information that is involved in geological modelling and solves problems of various levels.
Proper use of high quality Heliometric data helps reaching new horizons and significantly reduce uncertainty of exploration and development projects.
The most challenging goals are achieved by deep integration of Heliometric data using state-of-the-art machine learning solutions. It is important to note that the deeper the integration of Heliometric data, the higher the requirements for the quantity and quality of such data.
Here we talk about integrated solutions that are carried out either by our company or by companies that are part of Heologic Group (www.heologic.com)

We called G+G+HE model to the highest level of interpretation. In this model, Heliometric data is already integrated at the level of geophysical data processing and interpretation. This approach makes it possible to improve the quality of interpretation of geophysical data and to pay attention to areas that could be missed with the conventional approach. The "HELIOMETRIC IMAGE" of successful commercial wells at this level of integration is highly reliable and prospect's Probability of Success (POS) can be greatly assessed.
PROSPECT PORTFOLIO ASSESSMENT
The need to apply new technologies before proceeding further is very common globally and it's when heliometric data plays significant role in the early generation and selection of new concepts and opportunities, the prospect assessment and used to determine annual finding targets and formulate exploration strategies followed by the development of prospects using existing and newly acquired well, seismic, and other geological data.
OLD BASINS ASSESSMENT
The use of Heliometric data is constantly growing in studies of old basins boosting their attractiveness as a destination for investment in resource exploration. Actual Geology is tasked with gathering new heliometric data concerning potential oil, gas, helium, geothermal and natural hydrogen resources concealed beneath the surface. This new data supports exploration activities by providing a better understanding of the old basins and assisting in identifying geological terrains with resource potential and for future data collection and exploration opportunity.
In salt seismic velocity contrast causes geophysical imaging problems that can mask underlying structures and prevent geoscientists from determining the location or extent of potential reservoirs. Insufficient quality of seismic data in subsoil posed significant challenges to drilling in land and sea. However, Heliometric data shows that a significant improvement in data quality is possible. Integration of Heliometric data into seismic data advances processing techniques and helps geophysicists resolve problems that previously prevented imaging beneath the salt.
Actual Geology brings a new multidisciplinary approach to maximize the value of the G&G data and mitigate uncertainty of drilling outcome to the greatest extent possible. Our customers drill wells within Heliometric Anomalies confirmed by geology with a lowest possible risk. Heliometric data has been applied onshore & offshore in more than 200 projects and is getting widely known as future-proof method that can reliably predict 90% of subsequent commercial discoveries and about 99% of the eventual dry holes.
DRILLING: GAS MUD LOGGIN
The standard industry techniques were designed specifically to evaluate reservoir rocks for hydrocarbons during drilling but mud gas logs are usually not evaluated properly for non-hydrocarbon gases like Helium. Actual Geology has developed real-time mud gas monitoring techniques and Helium Log Monitoring (HLM) system for drilling in hydrocarbon and non-hydrocarbon formations to sample Helium gas at shale shaker and evaluate the continuous Helium gas logs.
Heliometric data is used together with the latest generation of data-driven INSIM-FT model, which allows to significantly reduce the time of calculating the physical model of the oil field compared to traditional hydrodynamic simulators. A more accurate physical model with Heliometric data solves the field optimization problem and supports selection of the best decisions on what exactly should be done in the field in order to maintain and increase production, to involve in the development of areas not currently covered.
In addition to existing classical numerical reservoir simulation used to calculated expected oil and water production rates, Actual Geology offers helium gas monitoring in associated gas measured at the producers wellhead. This method proved to be successful in the evaluation of the areal sweep efficiency in many basins.
ABANDONED WELL ASSESSMENT
The use of Heliometric data in assessment of well production potential is growing constantly within last years. Before decommissioning an oil and gas well 3D Areal Helium survey is conducted with a construction of heliometric anomalous zone map around studied wells. This approach solves multiple problems at once, identifying oil, gas, helium or geothermal production potential from the wells so operators may don’t need to completely retire the assets.
