Land Seismic Positioning Overview


Anyone who wants to learn more about the land seismic positioning process and organization.


This course begins with a look at the importance of geodetic and seismic survey parameters in the execution of a project. There is also a focus on terrain conditions and HSE rules to apply throughout operations.

Guided lessons are provided to learn more on the specific tasks of:

• Project scouting
• Preplanned line positions
• Alternative placement of seismic points
• The use of control points
• Surveying principle
• The process of seismic positioning

The GNSS network, RTK and conventional surveying methods are studied.

Staking out seismic points, line clearance and office work are discussed with the course concluding by a review of the software for processing and QC and for mapping operations and finally a discussion on HSE.

Learning Objectives

• Understand the importance of geodetic and seismic parameters and their impacts on a land seismic survey
• Name the chronology of the positioning process
• Choose and justify the survey steps and methods for specific seismic survey projects.
• Understand the impact of the safety rules in a seismic survey
