The Exploro approach



One Basin Approach

Exploro’s STRATiBase® provide a unique and consistent geological framework, continuous interpretations through basins and across country borders. This has been achieved by creating our high-quality geological model within a chronostratigraphic framework combining interpretations of wells and seismic.

Integrated approach

Integration in Exploro’s STRATiBase® is fundamental in our approach to achieving high-quality regional geological frameworks. Integration occurs in all direction, between fields disciplines, obtained results and regions. 

Multidisciplinary approach

Our experts have a multidisciplinary background and integrate all forms of geological data in an iterative manner with each other. This goes for both our products and our services. We have had very good feedback from our customers that we solve the challenges in a cost effective way with high quality results, They are especially impressed with the integration of available data and how we solve them using multiple disciplines. 

Evergreen projects

Exploro’s STRATiBase® is continuously evolving. Products are improved: analyses are revisited and updated periodically, new available data, innovative methods and improved geological understanding are continuously implemented to increase the quality of our products, and enlarge their applicability.

Easy to Use

Exploro’s STRATiBase® is available in multiple platforms, with standardised templates and workflows that facilitate ease of use.



Exploro focuses much of its resources on R&D and innovative methods to improve the quality of our products. E.g. Exploro has recently finished an analysis linking source rock with oil and gas by the use of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR). This allows us to say which source rock supplied a reservoir with its contents.


Structured database

Exploro’s massive database is structured and contextualised in consistent manner. This provides geologic consistency across the entire basin. Because of its consistency the well database can easily be used in machine learning projects to gain further insight. Exploro utilizes its own in-house routine to digitalise data and perform quality control.


STRATiBase® is a off-the-shelf yet tailor made product with immeditate access and full flexibility to our clients, layer by layer or area by area. This ensures that you have the freedom to tailor your investment precisely to your subsurface goals. These products tie seismostratigraphic sequences in a chronostratigraphic context in a regionally-consistent and continuous manner. Our products provide detailed regional maps, regionally-correlative data, interpretations and analyses of main source and reservoir parameters to help speed up prospect identification.

Geographical coverage

Covering the entire Norwegian Continental Shelf and most of the UK continental shelf. Geographically, STRATiBase® is divided into Norwegian Sea, Norwegian North Sea, UK North Sea and West of Shetland products.


STRATiBase® is specifically designed to help exploration companies in regions where they want to venture in and reducing turn-around time and risk. The consistency of STRATiBase® allow the users to compare areas and screening of new regions in a standardized manner. The provided geological framework helps companies assess prospects and licenses, provides better geological control, aids explorationist’s accelerating start in new areas and assist business development strategies.

Exploro’s experienced consultants in combination with STRATiBase® data can in short time unravel additional resources for clients. This is a service we have provided for several clients with good results. We can also easily integrate the clients data with our detailed knowledge to maximize value for the client.


STRATiBase® consists of the following deliverables:

  • Structured database
  • Stratigraphic framework
  • Gross depositional environments
  • Basin modelling
  • Petroleum system analysis
  • Comprehensive report

These deliverables are associated with a range of supporting data including a work-station ready project containing detailed seismic interpretation, QCed input data, 2D and 3D merged seismic


Geological products

Complementing the STRATiBase® products Exploro has developed a number of regional products targeting geological topics:

  • Paleogene project cross border UK & Norway
  • High resolution oil classification for the Greater Utsira High
  • Cenozoic erosion reconstruction 60-68 degrees
  • Barents Sea regional stratigraphic study
