Oceanographic and meteorologic evaluations on a basin-to-block scale for geophysical program design, drilling program, LNG transport and HSE/legal issues. Common parameters include surface-to-seabed currents, winds, waves and tides.

Seabed Stability evaluations for well/pipeline emplacement using seismic, sedimentologic, bathymetric and tectonic data.

Chemostratigraphic analyses for resolving source terrain, depositional environment, authigenic/diagenetic processes, and subdividing source/reservoir units in areas with limited chronostratigraphic control.
