Bow Geo prospect portfolio:

Bow Geo has a numerous of prospects and leads in our portfolio. This database includes also volume estimates, risking, geophysical support etc.

Bow Geo is constantly working to expand and improve our prospect and lead portfolio in concession rounds areas (ordinary concession and APA rounds). A full and integrated g&g approach is used in the de-risking. Bow Geo has also access and utilizes EM data in areas where we believe it can make a difference

Bow Geo offers assistance to:

  • Complete applications and G&G services for concession rounds (APA and ordinary concession rounds)
  • Preparation for concession rounds (e.g., nomination for the 24th Concession Round)
  • Regional and Semi-regional reports
  • Farm-In evaluation
  • Licence follow-up
  • Other G&G studies

Data and Expertise

Bow Geo has access to public available data (seismic and well data) via Diskos. However, data licenced by the client may be included.

Bow Geo has invested in selected technical and graphical softwares (e.g. for seismic interpretation, rock physics, petrophysics, seismic reservoir characterization, volume calculation and CSEM work) to complete full and integrated prospect evaluation studies.

  • Petrel (Geophysics Core)
  • Interactive Petrophysics (Petrophysics and rock physics)
  • Blueback plug-ins to Petrel (Seismic reservoir characterization, Rock physics, Toolboxes and more)
  • Multi-method risk analysis (MMRA)
  • EMU (EM modelling, survey layout and evaluation)
  • Corel Draw
  • ArcGis
  • and more

Bow Geo has software expertise in Petrel + Blueback plugins, DUG Insight, GeoTeric, PaleoScan, PreStackPro, Kingdom Suites, Hampson Russel, RokDoc, Interactive Petrophysics, GeoX, MMRA, OpendTect etc., in addition to numerous graphical softwares (e.g., CorelDraw, Adobe Illustrator, ArcGis)


Bow Geo is specialized in subsurface evaluation of the Barents Sea where we have long experience in regional evaluation, prospect evaluation, reservoir analysis, and geophysical evaluation. We have been heavily involved in all concession rounds since the 16th Concession Round on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.

In addition, Bow Geo has long experience in evaluation of the Mid-Norwegian shelf (Halten Terrace, Froan Basin, Nordland Ridge, Vøring Basin, Vestfjorden Basin, Ribban Basin etc.).                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Prospect evaluation and reservoir development of Palaeozoic carbonates represents a key expertise of Bow Geo. We have been heavily involved in evaluation of Carboniferous and Permian carbonates on the Loppa High and Finnmark Platform. Tommy did his Doctor Thesis on Palaozoic carbonates on the Norwegian continental shelf and has been involved in several publications on this topic.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 Bow Geo has also many years of experience with interpretation and integration of CSEM data together with seismic and geological knowledge in order to reduce risk and increase the understanding of the subsurface. Bow Geo may run complete CSEM projects including follow-up of survey planning, acquisition, processing and interpretation towards CSEM contractors (EMGS, Schlumberger, ORG, Petromarker etc.)

APA 2019 has just been announced and Bow Geo has identified several interesting prospects and leads in the APA 2019 areas. Bow Geo has continued the work on expanding our prospect portfolio and updating our semi-regional reports. Bow Geo AS offer services and exclusive products to oil- and gas exploration companies and has performed studies within all geological sub-basins within the APA 2019 area in the Barents Sea. Several studies and reports relevant for APA 2019 may be delivered exclusively. See Projects for more information

Bow Geo has mapped some very interesting prospects in the APA 2019 area. Several of the prospects have very strong geophysical support (amplitude, AVO and EM anomalies) coinciding with structural closures. These prospects are located in areas highly suitable for migration and reservoir development, and with a proven hydrocarbon system.
