Exploring with TROVE

Maurice Bamford, former Exploration Manager with EnQuest and Talisman (now Repsol-Sinopec) leads the Exploration Team at 1st Subsurface. Here, Maurice describes some of the power and functionality with the TROVE exploration databases:

Subscribers to TROVE exploration databases can find more prospect specific data "at the click of a button" than in any other database product on the market. The power of TROVE exploration databases is further enhanced by operators sending farmout flyers, additional released data for inclusion in the database.
