Australian Department of Defence - Rapid Prototyping, development and evaluation program
As an Australian company and leading independent global geoscience firm, Frogtech Geoscience is proud to be a member of the unique collaboration program between Defence, industry and academia that brings together the best and brightest from across the defence industry spectrum to address complex Australian Defence capability, development and modernisation issues. Known as the Rapid Prototyping, Development and Evaluation Program (RPDE), RPDE is a joint Defence-Industry initiative.
Geoscience plays an important role in understanding the impacts of the natural earth on defence operations with a focus on safety. By coupling our research led geology, advanced geophysics and geospatial capability Frogtech Geoscience can address a broad spectrum of defence challenges.
United Kingdom Oil & Gas Authority
The future of exploration in the UKCS
In 2016, the then Prime Minister, the Rt Hon David Cameron MP, on 28 January 2016 as part of a package of government support measures for the oil and gas industry through United Kingdom Oil & Gas Authority (OGA) launched a competition designed to promote future exploration in offshore oil and gas in the United Kingdom Continental Shelf (UKCS).
Frogtech Geoscience competed with global entrants from industry and academia to be awarded a commission to produce a SEEBASE program design for a hand-contoured depth-to-basement model of the Rockall and MNSH areas to provide greater insight into the foundation of the geological basement, rather than relying on more traditional gravity inversion methods.
In June 2016, Frogtech Geoscience was awarded a further commission by the OGA to conduct a project utilising their SEEBASE product (Structurally Enhanced view of Economic BASEment). They will produce a unique, hand-contoured depth-to-basement model of the Rockall and MNSH areas which will provide greater insight into the foundation of the geological basement, rather than relying on more traditional gravity inversion methods. Additional deliverables include the interpretation of basement terranes, major structures and basement-derived heat flow.
Frogtech Geoscience is proud to be an associate member of the Australian Petroleum Production & Exploration Association (APPEA). APPEA is the peak national body representing Australia’s oil and gas exploration and production industry.
APPEA works with Australian governments to help promote the development of the nation’s oil and gas resources in a manner that maximises the return to the Australian industry and community. APPEA also aims to secure regulatory and commercial conditions that enable member companies to operate safely, sustainably, and profitably.
The Association also seeks to increase community and government understanding of the upstream petroleum industry by publishing information about the sector’s activities and economic importance to the nation.
