Featured technology:  Modified Stochastic Inversion (MSI)


Permian operators have many challenges in the exploration and development of resource plays such as the Wolfcamp-Spraberry in the Midland Basin. Advances in drilling and completions have unlocked enormous amounts of hydrocarbons in the short term, but geology remains the strongest predictor of long-term production.
