Ok this might be the most fun we have ever had with an oil and gas project. Of course it’s even more exciting knowing there’s a million barrels of oil, and bragging rights, on the line! Bryan Groves, who boasts the title of one of Usable Creative’s first clients, is a successful geologist here in Lafayette, Louisiana. Bryan wanted an interactive, fun game on his website to draw in his oil and gas colleagues and geologist friends. It took a bit of time, brain power, and of course creativity, but together we created Bryan’s Million Barrel Challenge.
What is this Million Barrel Challenge?
Bryan provided a raw seismic profile with no well control or well logs (no point of reference). Somewhere in the profile lies a reservoir with 1 million barrels of oil.
The test? Click on the seismic profile to try and locate the million barrels! (Bryan found the million barrels through detailed interpretation of 3D seismic data and subsurface geologic data, but for us, its equally difficult to find by clicking around).
When you click on the profile, the image will bounce, and make noise to let you know you aren’t so lucky… yet. When you do locate the money spot, an image appears informing you of your victory, and your boasting rights.
