OUR APPROACH & TRACK RECORD
BRT takes a holistic approach in its projects, based on the idea that success in E&P requires multiple elements to come together simultaneously (see chart at right). Tools and technologies, while important, are insufficient to ensure success, which depends largely on knowledge and experience as well as key human characteristics which our Team possesses. We put an emphasis on creative thinking and the development of new solutions, rather than applying a pre-defined set of knowledge or workflows.
Elements of Successful Exploration, compiled by Mike Forrest and Allen Bertagne following discussions with E&P experts (The Leading Edge, January 2020, p.10)
We view every assignment from different perspectives and are particularly focused on uncovering hidden risks and creating new upsides. This is achieved by careful review of the data provided and when applicable, through the use of advanced Seismic methods as well as extensive databases
We realize that our clients often face tight deadlines and need “the time not the details of how the watch is made.” Clear, concise, communication, allowing improved operational and investment decisions are a cornerstone of our Services.
