Amros Corporation’s breakthrough ShaleVision™ technology identifies the highest producing zones in shale plays using only open-hole log data, providing operators with optimum locations and trajectories for horizontal wells to maximize profitability and avoid drilling low-productive wells, reducing development cost and environmental impact. It provides also key information to optimize well spacing. When combined with data from surrounding vertical wells, ShaleVision™ identifies the best formations and optimum trajectories for horizontal wells along with estimates of production. 

Amros was selected from nearly 1000 innovative technologies from North America to participate in the prestigious InnoSTARS Competition 2019, hosted by the US China Innovation and Investment Summit (officially supported by both governments). The Business Model is simple. Operators provide new or old open hole log data. Amros ShaleVision™ studies this data and generates locations of the sweet spots and the best trajectories of horizontal wells.

One of the studies shows that in Permian Basin, 80% of the rocks produced 12 times less than the remaining 20%. That means that development of the sweet spots is 12 times more profitable. It means also that ShaleVision™ reduced environmental impact in 12 times.

About Amros Corporation

Since 1994 Amros Corporation has been providing innovative geoscience solutions to help operators optimize the development of both conventional and unconventional reservoirs around the world. These have included solutions for direct hydrocarbon identification using seismic data, joint petrophysical and seismic interpretation, formation evaluation for heavy oil and marine littoral shale deposits, and many others where we have extracted maximum value from data to support informed decision making and optimized operations.  

In 2013 Amros Corporation introduced ShaleVision™, our proprietary technology based on decades of research and analysis that identifies the highest producing zones in shale plays, allowing operators to target the best-producing zones and avoid the cost of drilling low productive wells.
