Deformable Plate Reconstruction Studies - PlateDEF
GeoArctic are recognized as industry leaders in the field of deformable plate modelling and its application to oil and gas exploration. Using software and analytical techniques resulting from many years of in-house R & D, GeoArctic has built PlateDEF - a data-constrained deformable plate model and database for the North Atlantic and Arctic. PlateDEF provides the foundation for our geoscientists to produce regional, multiclient plate reconstruction studies. These studies integrate many years of research on the tectonic evolution and petroleum systems of the North Atlantic and Arctic. PlateDEF studies provide oil companies with the critical information they need for risk assessment of frontier areas. Available studies cover the North-East Atlantic including North-East Greenland, Southeast Greenland/West of Shetlands and Baffin Bay-Labrador Sea-West Greenland. A Circum-Arctic study is due for release in the summer of 2015.

Deformable Plate Reconstruction Services
GeoArctic's services include development of proprietary deformable plate models and reconstructions based on geological and geophysical data provided by the client and integrated with GeoArctic's PlateDEF model and database. Clients can also update their proprietary model and map deliverables using GeoArctic's online deformable plate reconstruction service.
