Oil and Renewables
Energy companies, challenged to meet global demand for oil and renewable resources, are expanding their exploration to deeper, more remote and complex environments. Geosoft earth mapping and gravity modelling solutions support cost-effective discovery of energy resources through improved targeting, prospecting, project and data management.

Integrated approaches to oil and renewable energy exploration
Within the energy sector, exploration companies rely on integrated approaches to better define projects early on, and minimise the risk of conducting expensive investigation before potential is determined. Geosoft earth mapping and modelling solutions support the integration of seismic interpretation, with gravity and magnetic methods suitable for potential field exploration, and effective characterisation of sub-salt and sub-sea environments.
We help to solve these challenges for energy explorers:
- Processing, mapping, 3D modelling, and interpretation of gravity and magnetics to support potential field exploration in sub-salt, sub-volcanic, and deepwater environments.
- Integrated analysis and 3D mapping of subsurface borehole geology data for exploratory drilling programs.
- Environmental mapping and detection of unexploded ordnance (UXO) for offshore seabed surveys.
- Lifecycle management of geophysical data, including organisation, publishing and distribution.
- Development of custom solutions including new tools, unique workflows, and specific algorithms for the Oasis montaj environment or as a stand-alone desktop or web application.
Geosoft is a gravity and magnetic solution leader within the oil industry, supporting the exploration programs of the world’s largest and most successful energy companies.
Integrated Platform for Earth Exploration
Oasis montaj is ideally suited for today's multidisciplinary and collaborative exploration. Access to data and a powerful set of mapping and analysis tools is provided within one dynamic, 3D environment. More than 20 extensions are available to conduct specialised geophysical processing and analysis within Oasis montaj.
Gravity and Magnetics Modelling
GM-SYS Profile Modelling
GM-SYS Profile Modelling is the industry-leading interactive gravity and magnetic profile modelling program. It enables users to create a geologic model of the subsurface and integrate seismic, well, and geology data with observed gravity and magnetic measurements.
GM-SYS 3D Modelling
GM-SYS 3D is 3D gravity and magnetic modelling software for surface-oriented models. It allows geoscientists to model complicated three dimensional subsurface structures of any size or scale. GM-SYS 3D is fully integrated with Geosoft Oasis montaj, and requires both Oasis montaj and montaj MAGMAP.
Seismic Data Integration
When working within Geosoft GM-SYS Profile, GM-SYS 3D or Oasis montaj, a built-in SEG-Y Reader makes it fast and easy to work with SEG-Y files. The reader enables integration of seismic data in SEG-Y format with Oasis montaj geospatial data and GM-SYS Profile and GM gravity and magnetic models. It converts 2D SEG-Y data into bitmaps, Oasis montaj grids or databases and 3D SEG-Y data into 3D Grids or databases.
Exploration Information Management
Geosoft DAP is server technology for publishing, distributing and discovering exploration data. It enables exploration organisations to efficiently catalog, manage, deliver and visualise large geospatial data. Via DAP data is easily accessed and shared amongst all the people that need exploration data to make decisions.
Exploration Information Management Solution
A full range of planning, implementation, data review and preparation services are available to support successful global deployment of your DAP Server technology, and provide a complete exploration information management solution for your organisation. We can customise or build new tools that are based on your specific workflows and needs. On-site training services support adoption and effective use of DAP Server across your organisation.
