Mark your calendar now and plan to be in Houston on Wednesday, November 5, 2014, for The Rothwell Group’s 4th Annual PaleoGIS/PaleoClimate User Conference and Plate Tectonics Reconstruction Workshop.

Join your colleagues from the oil, gas and mineral exploration industries, and from the geoscience research community, for a highly informative day (9 a.m. to 4 p.m.). The conference will include presentations of industry user case studies, current research from leading scientists and the latest technological advancements from our plate model partners.

In addition, the Rothwell team will demonstrate new product capabilities and share our future development plans. These include updates to our web-based product strategy and a new offering for the academic community.

Stay tuned for a detailed agenda and formal invitations, in the near future. We look forward to seeing you again—or welcoming you for the first time!

PanAtlantic Exploration Company Selects PaleoGIS

PanAtlantic Exploration Company is the newest user of PaleoGIS.

We are pleased to announce that PanAtlantic Exploration Company (PanAtlantic) is the newest user of The Rothwell Group’s plate tectonics reconstruction software, PaleoGIS.

PanAtlantic is an independent oil and gas company with extensive experience and expertise in safe, efficient, offshore and onshore exploration along West Africa and South America, as well as in the Black Sea.

The Rothwell Group (Rothwell) is a software engineering and process optimization company. Our solutions are designed for organizations that rely on complex geoscience, geospatial, decision support and operational processes to fuel business performance. We collaborate with our customers to transform their critical workflows into intuitive and tailored solutions that drive efficiency, manage costs and increase productivity.

For the petrochemical and mineral industries, Rothwell has developed PaleoGIS, plate tectonics reconstruction software, and PaleoClimate™, quick-cycle climate modeling software. These are first-pass screening tools that enable geologists and GIS professionals to predict high-potential analogues with lower risk and cost, as well as to understand basin and play formation with greater accuracy. The products are installed at the majority of the largest and fastest-growing global oil and gas and mineral exploration companies.

Rothwell Introduces PaleoSearch™

Product Insights Bulletin: PaleoSearch™

We are pleased to provide the Rothwell paleo-geoscience user community with periodic insights into our ongoing product direction.

In this “Product Insights” bulletin we would like to introduce PaleoSearch™.

The amount of data gathered and incorporated into basin and play development analysis continues to grow significantly, meaning the value of rapid data access and retrieval has never been greater. Rothwell’s PaleoSearch™ will allow geologists and GIS professionals to execute real-time geologic searches across geologic time, geographic area and keywords. PaleoSearch™ can be used with datasets that are internally developed, purchased from third-party data vendors or compiled from public domain sources.

With PaleoSearch™, users will be able to quickly perform searches that can specify:

  • A time interval of interest,
  • A spatial area of interest (AOI), and
  • Multiple text filters to narrow the search.

Further, users can choose one or more dataset types to search with.

For example, a geoscientist may be interested in searching a geologic dataset for events that occurred on the East Coast of the United States during the time period of 210 Ma to 110 Ma. The user would submit the age range (210–110 Ma) and their geographic area of interest to PaleoSearch™. The user could also constrain the search with a text filter, such as source rock or igneous or rifting.

Traditionally, valuable data and specialized knowledge has resided within “siloed” groups or individuals. However, this same information could be leveraged throughout the organization. PaleoSearch™ will allow authorized users to rapidly search for and find any critical geologic data over a given time period, within a particular area of interest, thereby greatly enhancing the efficiency of their analysis projects.

Our team looks forward to providing more details related to this product throughout the year.
