Geoscientists and Scholars
Isamgeo is a consulting firm that provides expert advice, data analysis and interpretation, and numerical modeling for the oil&gas industry in the fields of geomechanics and geophysics. Team members have strong expertise in all aspects concerning the physics of porous media, and a long experience in oil and gas engineering.
Another field of work is the monitoring and forecasting of geodynamic phenomena associated with subsurface operations and activities in the oil&gas, geothermal production, and mining sectors with the aim of maximizing the production, optimizing the costs and minimizing the environmental impacts.
25 Years in the Making of...
Isamgeo was founded in 1995 in Weisbaden, Germany as a rock mechanics and SW firm to serve the oil&gas industry. In the following years it supported numerous projects mainly in the North Sea and mainland Europe.
In 2010 the Italian office was opened and subsequently the headquarters of the company moved to Milan area. In 2010s the company expanded its portfolio of activities by adding geophysics and seismological monitoring.
While in the geophysics side it completed numerous seismic and non-seismic surveys, in the area of monitoring, Isamgeo set up some of the largest seismic and geodynamic monitoring networks in Europe some of which are still actively being followed by Isamgeo engineers and geoscientists.
In 2022, Istanbul office was founded with the aim of serving newly emerging Turkish oil&gas sector and the regions such as CIS and Middle East that are culturally and logistically strongly connected with Türkiye.
expert advice, data analysis and interpretation
Isamgeo provides expert advice, data analysis and interpretation, and numerical modeling services for oil&gas, mining and geothermal industries in the fields of geomechanics and geophysics.
While for the oil&gas and geothermal industries geophysical, geomechanical and monitoring services are successfully delivered from deep to ultra-deep targets, for the mining industry, tailor-made engineering services are given for monitoring, geophysical surveys, mine expansions and so on.
Our clients range from integrated supermajors like Total Energies and Eni to downstream operators like SNAM, from regional geothermal leaders like Energeo and AGEPP to underground reservoir project companies like Karachaganak.
The Isamgeo FE Simulator
For most of the modelling services, Isamgeo team uses the Isamgeo FE Simulator, state-of-the-art, proprietary software developed by Isamgeo researchers.
The simulator has been used in numerous finite element geomechanical studies for the petroleum industry. Its code has several important characteristics that make it suitable especially to fulfill the requirements of the oil&gas industry.
The FE simulator is seamlessly integrated into all Isamgeo workflows, especially for reservoir management, monitoring and wellbore stability.

GEOSCIENCES FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
Carbon capture and sequestration (CCUS), hydrogen storage and the exploitation of geothermal resources are part of the technology mix that is contributing and will contribute to the reduction of CO2 emissions and transition to more sustainable energy resources.
The aforementioned technologies have a point in common, the interaction with the subsurface pressure regime during their normal functioning. As this interaction alters the stress field thus potentially affecting the geological formation and, in very specific situations inducing/triggering seismicity, the operators are asked to install and maintain seismic monitoring networks to ensure the safety of operations and integrity of the structures (above and belowground).
Last but not least, operators are also interested in monitoring the natural seismicity and understanding its impact on the infrastructure (wells, pipelines, etc).. Several operators are evaluating innovative, cost-effective strategies to monitor the subsurface aiming at preventing the potential risks associated with the onset of seismicity.
To support the energy transition we provide geomechanical, geophysical and monitoring services. Click to find out more.
Our goal is to improve the safety, the environmental sustainability and the efficency of the operations.
