PAETORO's founder and director, Dr. Dave Waters, has over twenty years of worldwide experience in the global resource exploration and production industry.
Paetoro's key focus is structural complexity. Areas considered "too hard" in the past are more likely to retain under-explored opportunity that new technologies and workflows can unlock. Onshore fold and thrust belts, rift basin fault compartments, and salt structure complexities are not always easy to decipher, but frequently hold rewards for those that manage to do so.
Before tackling complexity, organising the database and understanding the big picture are necessary. Workflows to facilitate this geological "context" - i.e. integrated regional review bringing in the wealth of knowledge from every discipline, is a strength of Paetoro.
