ViaLogy Contracted for QuantumRD Services in Ecuador


London, May, 8th 2013.  ViaLogy PLC (VIY) announces it has signed a contract with a subsidiary of Singapore-based Gente Oil Global, Pte. Ltd. to apply its QuantumRD seismic interpretation technology on Ecuadorian properties in the Oriente Basin.  ViaLogy will focus on reservoir discovery, delineation, and development in Napo sandstone formations that have proven too complicated to understand through conventional interpretation. Project results will support the planned drilling program.

The Oriente Basin of Ecuador is a prolific producing field with nearly 3billion barrels recovered over the past 20 years. It continues to be the focus of active exploration. QuantumRD will be used to analyze 3D seismic and accurately characterize recoverable reserves from stratigraphic sandstone traps within structures associated with Andean faulting. The lithology is complex, seismically and volcanically active and, prone to rapid areal and vertical changes in geological sequence.  This project leverages some of the fluid imaging capabilities developed by ViaLogy in its work for supermajors to characterize stratigraphic reservoir assets that were below the vertical resolution of vintage seismic. 

Gente Oil Global is comprised of experienced industry veterans with a proven track record of working successfully with Latin American governments to develop oil and gas resources.  Combined, the management team has been responsible for the discovery of billions of barrels of oil and gas equivalent. 


ViaLogy CEO Robert Dean said, "We are pleased to be working with Gente Oil Global to support their drilling program in the Oriente Basin of Ecuador. This gives us a chance to bring some of the QuantumRD capabilities we have optimized for reservoirs in highly tectonic basins where both structural and stratigraphic elements are in play. We see Latin America as a significant potential market for QuantumRD services".

About ViaLogy:

ViaLogy provides reservoir characterization, geophysical imaging and hydrocarbon sizing services to global oil and gas customers based on proprietary, patented active signal processing technology. ViaLogy's QuantumRD platform assists clients in de-risking prospects over a broad range of subsurface lithologies and complex stratigraphies to generate drilling targets, position offsets and enhance recovery.


ViaLogy's core technology rapidly and accurately detects weak signals buried in high noise background and clutter, and is applicable to active/passive seismic, electromagnetic and magneto telluric data. By exploiting normally disregarded noise variations induced by changes in porosity, fluid presence and permeability across the formation, and adding computer-designed noise to the data, ViaLogy is able to amplify subtle noise variations to enhance areal and depth resolution in complex lithologies that are not achievable through conventional means.
