Challenges for the petroleum industry increase continuously; the “easy” reservoirs have been<br>discovered and are produced today. New technologies and increasing sophistication, both in the data<br>display, evaluation and interpretation are utilised to home in on new prospects and increased production.<br>We show petroleum geoscience studies in which GIS was fundamental in bringing together varied data<br>sets on multiple scales to accomplish an integrated and result oriented analysis. New tools allow<br>geoscientists who are not GIS experts to efficiently analyse and interpret a wide range of data e.g. well<br>data, present-day and paleo-fault leakage and cross-flow probability, reservoir compartmentalisation,<br>fracture sweet spots, facies distribution and depositional direction. Regional paleo-stress and structural<br>maps are used to guide and constrain these interpretations.
