we deeply believe that a correct integration of surface and subsurface datasets gives value to E&P projects
STRATA GEORESEARCH is a top level spin-off firm of the University of Chieti-Pescara (Italy): a company established in 2017 to deliver multidisciplinary geoscience support to the E&P industry with the huge experience gained from our long activity on Mediterranean carbonate geology.
We aim to create a proactive synergy between the E&P industry and the Academy, through innovative applied research projects within the field of carbonate geology. Our primary focus is a correct integration between surface and subsurface data, to ensure a reliable and efficient management of advanced research programs addressed to E&P
bridging the gap
exploring in depth
Highly-focused reviews based on publicly available data and literature, integrated with original field data collected by Strata. The studies provide a deeper understanding of the geology of a region or a country and prepare for a more efficient evaluations of new opportunities
catch the opportunity
As part of our great experience on the geology and E&P in Italy, we are well positioned to support clients planning to catch E&P opportunities in Italy in proceeding with any regulatory request, Environmental Impact assessment, implementation and monitoring, and Health & Safety requirement
