Octopus company owns aт integrated technology for additional exploration of oil and gas fields, which makes it possible to predict the geological properties of rocks with the greatest certainty, which provides consumers with a significant technological advantage with regard to their competitors in the field of increasing the efficiency of the development of hydrocarbon fields
The information obtained in the course of research makes it possible to significantly refine geological, tectonic, geomechanical and fluid-dynamic models of the field. In its turn, the use of the obtained initial data is applied in the modeling of field development, the development of projects for capital construction, reconstruction, modernization of wells and field infrustrucure development projects at an early, medium or late stage of development. This makes it possible to significantly reduce capital investments, reduce commissioning time, improve development efficiency and reduce the field production cost.

The most effective application of this technology is for the fields with a complex geological structure, significant lithological heterogeneity of reservoir beds of fractured and cavernous type, the development of which is complicated by the large scope of technological complications during drilling and poor predictability of productivity, nonlinear hydrodynamics and low hydrocarbon recovery.
A comparable accuracy class of the problem being solved for predicting reservoir properties is achieved in simple and medium complexity conditions by significantly increasing the costs of both time and resources, which is caused by the need to drill substantially more additional wells, increase the complex of geophysical research, and core examination. It has no analogues in difficult conditions.

The cost of services for the implementation of the proposed engineering solutions for interested consumers consists of two parts. Reimbursement of direct charges for the performance of reconnaissance, and research field and cameral works, as well as royalties from the economic effect. The royalty rate depends on the term of the agreement, the regressive time scale and the degree of license exclusiveness, which creates exceptional competitive advantages for a certain selected territory for the consumer.
