Vitor Abreu, Ph.D., Geologist / Professor / Stratigraphy Instructor / Consultant

Consulting in regional exploration studies and high-resolution production-scale mapping. In regional studies, emphasize: interpretation, integration and mapping of 2-D and 3-D seismic data, wells, cores, biostratigraphy and outcrops. During production-scale mapping we focus on: high-resolution interpretation, correlation, data integration and mapping; with a goal of production data integration. These business-oriented studies have a strong focus on the identification and mapping of key play elements in exploration, definition of pressure cells and a development of strategies at production.

High-quality courses, with strong emphasis in business applications. Our philosophy on geosciences training for the industry is based on 3 foundation disciplines: Stratigraphy, Structural Geology and Geophysics. A strong, basic knowledge in these 3 foundation disciplines enable the deployment of an early-career geoscientist to successfully complete assignments from Exploration to Production.
