Basin Data

Evaluate hydrocarbon potential with comprehensive basin data

Does your basin data provide geology at the play level?

Access basin studies and related geological data for worldwide analysis of petroleum systems and plays. An International E&P Database module, Basin Data includes more than 5,080 mappable geological provinces and 527 basins and is the only geological dataset that permits risk analysis at the play level helping you to:

  • Analyze existing reserves
  • Determine future exploration
  • Understand individual basin evolution and stratigraphy
  • Compare portfolio assets
  • Enhance oil play fairway mapping


Initial Fast Screening
Perform rapid basin analysis

Basin Ranking and Analogue Studies
Rank and compare basins with in-house GIS software, EDIN or IHS Enerdeq® Browser

Petroleum System Analysis
Leverage geology, petroleum systems, plays and E&P data to analyze exploration success and reserves for different geological units

Play Fairway Mapping
Transform petroleum system and play elements into maps to choose optimal drilling locations
