The main component of Seep Explorer is NPA's Global Offshore Seeps Database (GOSD) which provides:
NPA’s offshore seepage detection technique utilizes satellite radar images to detect naturally occurring oil seepage in a variety of offshore settings, including untested offshore frontier basins. This technique led to the development of GOSD, which has rapidly become the industry standard with support from the majority of the world’s oil companies.
GOSD contains over 25000 individual SAR scenes that cover 90% of the world’s offshore sedimentary basins. The main components of GOSD provide:
The primary application of GOSD is for new ventures exploration; however it also has a major role to play in offshore pollution monitoring and environmental benchmarking.
The Fluid Features Database (FFD) was designed to provide an additional dataset for offshore assessment of slicks recorded in the GOSD. FFD is rapidly expanding with over ~20,000 attributed data points covering all features with a potential relationship to seepage.
The Robertson Geochemistry database provides an extensive geochemical database from oils, rocks and seep sites with a consistent tool for displaying and understanding the geochemical data. The seep site layer from Robertson Geochemistry has been incorporated into Seep Explorer.
The Global Onshore Gas-Oil Seeps data set (GLOGOS) was a recent acquisition by CGG from Gas Consult. GLOGOS provides an additional 2000 onshore seeps from 87 countries, based on direct research (published data) and an extensive literature and internet web survey. Seeps are classified in gas seeps, oil seeps, mud volcanoes and springs.
Seep Explorer provides the world's most extensive on- and offshore seepage database, containing:
