DNA sequencing combines the benefits of many diagnostics into one economical approach to determine hydrocarbon fluid movement. It is a high resolution data source that provides 4D analysis across the production lifecycle which does not introduce environmental risk or require downhole tools.
Benefits of Biota Technology
DNA sequencing the subsurface generates over 10K data points per sample that provide highly specific information to identify the subtle subsurface changes that matter to your business.
DNA sequencing the subsurface requires no special downhole tools or workover so reservoir characteristics can be assessed across time to provide a dynamic view of the changes to your asset.
DNA data can be acquired for significantly less cost compared to conventional wireline logs.
DNA data is captured from the natural subsurface
samples, our non-invasive method does not
require pumping any chemicals into the reservoir.
No disruptions to operations
We work with your mudloggers and pumpers to
safely acquire samples during normal drilling and
→ Samples acquisition
Acquire microbe samples from the rock when a well is first drilled and from oil when a well starts flowing.
→ DNA extraction and sequencing
DNA is extracted from the microbe samples
→ Data analysis
Data derived from the DNA is analyzed using Biota’s proprietary software.
