“The team with the best maps wins”
– Geophysicist, European Major, on pitching prospects for development approval.
Established in 1984, Petrosys revolutionized the oil and gas industry with mapping, surface modeling, connectivity and data management products for geoscience professionals. Today, Petrosys is the industry leader – delivering direct connectivity with the E&P industry’s most popular exploration, production and GIS data sources.
The Petrosys mapping application, Petrosys PRO, provides a map canvas on which petroleum exploration and production staff can;
- Transform mapping standards and efficiencies across their organization with consistent, accurate and compelling maps – critical ineffective communication.
- Produce surface models of the highest quality and reliable volume estimates by leveraging the most trusted, effective and repeatable geoscience methods.
- Use intuitive, direct connectivity to key subsurface applications from Schlumberger, Halliburton, IHS-Markit and more. Gaining valuable insight by effortlessly combining data from multiple disciplines and datasets.
Petrosys Map Gallery
Here are some great maps Petrosys PRO users can create as layered and georeferenced PDF files. Click on the map image to download the PDF file and use the layer selection tool in Adobe Reader to access the full depth of content of the maps shown.
Teapot Dome Lowest Closing Contours
This depth structure map of the Teapot Dome includes nested closures in successive shades of translucent grey, and orthocontours – effectively flow lines – generated around their periphery.
Production Bubble Map
Bubble maps – scaled pie charts – are commonly used to represent production information. In this example oil, gas and water production from successive years have been represented through overlaid bubbles of increasing diameter.
High resolution bathymetry analysis
The publication of a high resolution bathymetric grid for the deepwater Gulf of Mexico has encouraged research on the automatic classification of subsurface features, such as these seismic water bottom anomalies identified by the BOEM. The bathymetry is shown here as a Petrosys grid imported from the raster data provided.
Log Signature Map
Variations in reservoir characteristics across a field can be visualized by posting well log segments of producing zones at the associated well locations. Log curves from existing stores are rendered using Petrosys log display templates.
Dutch offshore Basemap
This is basemap showing cultural data from NLog and high-resolution bathymetry from EMODnet. This can easily be selected as a background for prospect level maps.
Prospect data with culture background
Geoscience data from interpretation system, with cultural basemap in the background.
we are the mapping gurus
The maps displayed here in the Petrosys Map Gallery have all been created using standard Petrosys PRO software. To create a map, a user starts by selecting a style, which may be generic Petrosys PRO or customized to their corporate standards. They can then display any of the data that they want to show, allowing the system to determine the map extent or constraining the geographic extent to their preferred area of interest. As more types of information are added, the display layers are managed in a list, where they can be moved up and down, temporarily hidden, and arranged into logical groups.
A map can be published at any stage: the examples shown here have been published using the Export-to-PDF option. To get the full benefit of these maps we recommend that you download them and then use the standard Adobe Reader to view them. Adobe Reader includes a layer control tool that then lets you see the display list, as it was set up in Petrosys PRO, and to switch on and off individual layers. There is also a geospatial locator tool that can be used to browse geographical locations and to measure distances, areas, and bearings. The PDF viewing built into most web browsers will display the PDF correctly, but won’t let you access the layered structure.
Other forms of output to which Petrosys PRO can publish include direct access to Microsoft Windows printers and plotters; raster images for use in Office products, including a single button press export to Powerpoint; and CGM files for use with server-based plotting systems such as SDI, JustPlot, Larson, Zeh, and JustCGM.

Springbank Field Lower Graben
Depth contour map of the top of a reservoir sequence, with net pay thickness shown as a color gradient, and reservoir attributes – pressure, temperature, SW and porosity – shown as stop light symbols.
targa field orthocontours
Seismic 2D base map with faulted time surface. Use the layering to switch on and off the pale grey mask.
gulf of Mexico green canyon
The long history of offshore E&P activity in the Gulf of Mexico is reflected in this map, in which layer controls allow switching on and off of wells, pipelines, and lease boundaries.
tellus world basins
Major basin outlines on this map create the framework for spot locations of giant oil and gas fields.
Volume Estimates by Legal Sub Divisions, Canada
Volume estimates based on a combination of zone thickness and hydrocarbon pore volume are aggregated into a shapefile of Canadian LSD’s, allowing display in Petrosys and further processing in other applications.
Gulf of Mexico ‘Prospect A’
Hypothetical depth structure map of a series of fault bounded traps around a salt dome in the Viosca Knoll area of the Gulf of Mexico.
