TAVANA Services for the Unconventional Resources


In cooperation with the well-known partners , TAVANA provides full range of state-of-the-art technologies for exploration and development of unconventional hydrocarbon resources. Advanced seismic technologies, recent developments in petroleum geochemistry and petrophysical analysis all have been integrated in TAVANA services for the unconventional resources.

 Unconventional resources are natural resources which require greater than industry-standard levels of technology or investment to exploit. In the case of unconventional hydrocarbon resources, additional technology, energy and capital has to be applied to extract the gas or oil, replacing the natural action of the geological processes of the petroleum system.

Examples of unconventional resources are:

Tight Gasunconven1
Coalbed Methane (CBM)
Shale Gas
Shale Oil
Heavy Oil/Tar sands
Gas Hydrates
