INTERNATIONAL CONSULTING SERVICES

GEOLOGICAL.  GEOPHYSICAL.  DRAFTING AND MARKETING.  THE COMPLETE PACKAGE.

Short-staffed and needing immediate assistance?  Is a lot of valuable 3D seismic data simply "sitting on the shelf" and in need of interpretation?  We can assist you with a wide variety of services, either on a reasonable dayrate or contract basis.  Take advantage of our knowledge, experience and integrity.  And please read what some of our clients and associates have to say about our work.  For a more in-depth discussion of the software we use and are familiar with, click here.  To read some Case Histories pertaining to our previous consulting work, please click here.

Steve Walkinshaw's 33 years of industry experience include work on projects located in Colombia, New Zealand, Australia and Canada, as well as much of the United States.  Steve conducted his undergraduate field geology studies in the Jura Mountains of northern Switzerland, mapping the "combs" (breached surface anticlines) of the type-section locale for the Jurassic, including the Hauptrogenstein Formation.  Like the Middle Eastern Arab Formation, the Late-Jurassic Hauptrogenstein Formation is very analogous to the Smackover Formation of the U.S. Gulf Coast; geomorphology and diagenesis is similar, and the geological, geophysical and petrophysical methods used to explore for and develop these Late-Jurassic carbonates is virtually identical.  Steve Walkinshaw has studied the Lower Smackover Brown Dense Lime extensively; its Middle East counterpart is considered one of the most prolific source rocks in the world.  The point of this discussion is simple: utilizing the Internet, Vision can leverage its experience to explore for oil and gas anywhere in the world.  Let us help you.
