The world is estimated to hold about 940 billion barrels of undiscovered oil and natural gas resources, much of it in remote and difficult to reach places, such as deep water, deserts, and arctic environments. Oil & gas companies are looking for technologies to help increase accuracy of exploration and production, while reducing risks and costs.
