1st Subsurface is a multidisciplinary consultancy, specialising in subsurface oilfield management, exploration and asset strategy.
We work not only with licensees, but with a wide range of stakeholders to analyse, identify and execute opportunities to maximise economic recovery and mitigate risk. This covers the full life cycle - from exploration to late life and cessation of production issues, along with supply chain opportunities.
Using our in-house expertise and powerful TROVE KnowledgeBases we add substantial value to E&P and M&A activities. Additionally, we can offer consultancy on issues relating to the energy transition.
For North West Europe (other areas in development) we offer bespoke Hub Analysis Reports. Providing an independent analysis of field historical production and remaining reserves forecasting along with powerful visualisation of the surrounding undeveloped potential for the area of interest.
We also perform basin wide analogue studies on a bespoke basis, all available within a matter of weeks thanks to TROVE.
