For many geophysicists, nanotechnology, the use of very small robots and sensors, will be the next big development in mapping oil and gas wells. Scientists imagine that one day soon, engineers could pour thousands, or even millions of tiny sensors into a reservoir, which would spread out to every corner and crevice like tiny beacons, allowing computers to generate an exact picture of the reservoir.
The technology remains the ultimate goal of oil data research, said Peter Venn, the Middle East business development director for SAS, which sells data-crunching technology to the region's oil companies.
