Version 4.5.0 was delivered on 31 March 2020 to existing clients and is available to new customers, enabling them to instantly expand their subsurface knowledge of these key regions of exploration.

The latest version is the result of a year-long process of geological analysis to ensure TGS supplies its customers with the most up-to-date and comprehensive interpretation available for the region. Updates include all newly released E&A wells from the UK and Norway continental shelf, in addition to new data types, such as mud gas logs. Upgrades to the Jurassic, Upper Cretaceous and Tertiary stratigraphic interpretations provide a robust framework on which to develop play concepts and delineate prospects. FMB 4.5.0 release provides more high-quality data than ever before to support technical evaluations and anticipated future licensing rounds.

Carl Neuhaus, Vice President, Well Data Products at TGS, commented: “We are excited to offer access to both high-quality seismic and all the available well data in this region – a unique combination offered by TGS. The Facies Map Browser is an invaluable resource that provides the most current subsurface data and expert geologic knowledge to help guide the user’s interpretations and allows our customers to make better and more informed decisions.”

FMB 4.5.0 also includes performance upgrades for improved user experience. With client feedback in mind, TGS has updated functionality to make it even easier to use the largest cross-border well database in northwest Europe.

The company has said the FMB database will continue to expand as work commences on the next annual release.
