About Vecta

Vecta Oil & Gas Ltd. (VOG) is an oil and gas exploration company that for the past several years has concentrated on successfully exploring and exploiting conventional reservoirs. Each project has been chosen to offer excellent upside reserve potential relative to the capital needed to prove up each concept. Most of Vecta’s projects target oil instead of natural gas.

Vecta employs a talented group of proven hydrocarbon-finder geoscientists with extensive experience in originating high-impact prospective trends, as well as experienced land and engineering professionals. Vecta is constantly developing new trends and is often seeking industry partners at various stages of development for each one.

Capabilities

VOG’s strength lies in its employees and advanced geophysical and geological capabilities.  Our small team of four geophysicists collectively can compete with major oil-company geophysical staffs.  Our professional geologic staff of six is recognized within the industry and has experience throughout all of North America. These geoscientists allow VOG to create its projects in-house and to be an early mover in newly developing resource plays.  VOG uses advanced petrophysical and geophysical tools and has developed in-house seismic methods unavailable to the rest of the industry. One key capability is the acquisition and interpretation of full vector wave-form seismic (9C-3D, or multi-component seismic).

VOG’s approach to exploration is to explore for and develop oil and gas reserves in proven producing basins where significant volumes of known undiscovered reserves remain. Specific strategies include: 1.) applying VOG’s competitive advantage in multi-component seismic to detect and exploit oil and gas that can only be detected using multi-component seismic; and 2.) applying VOG’s sophisticated, and often proprietary, seismic interpretation tools to conventional seismic.  This approach has yielded significant value and its partners in several successful plays.

Where it is appropriate VOG employs a patented suite of technologies that permit full vector wave-form seismic (9C-3D) to be robustly acquired, processed, interpreted, and related to geological exploration and development objectives. 9C-3D seismic is the most rigorous available form of multi-component seismic acquisition with the richest information content, because it includes shear-wave sources, which, combined with compressional wave seismic, give it great sensitivity to the elastic signatures most important to stratigraphic prediction and fracture detection. 9C-3D seismology has been successfully applied in West Texas, southeast Colorado, North Dakota and Western Alberta in both clastic and carbonate environments.

VOG has developed expertise in the management of all aspects of 9C data analysis, emphasizing the rigorous integration of acquisition, processing, and interpretation with geological concepts, and has made several oil and gas discoveries based on its proprietary analysis of 9C data.

Strategy

In order to mitigate risk VOG uses a portfolio approach, working a variety of trends with differing geologic and geophysical characteristics.  By developing, testing, and proving the risk-reductive solutions for each trend, Vecta then controls the key to developing each of these trends.  Furthermore, Vecta is able to leverage this knowledge to unlock trends of similar geologic nature. Vecta “sells down” each project in order to spread its dollars across our portfolio.
