Agile operations

Premium Technology for Premium Results

To maximize the value of information from your survey we offer a portfolio of premium technologies and services to suit your objectives and budget:

  • High-productivity vibroseis techniques including proprietary Unconstrained Blended Acquisition solutions for UltraSeis™ ultra-high density mega-crew surveys and LiteSeis™ 2D / 3D geometries in urban and obstructed areas
  • Broadband vibroseis, offered in combination with the latest Sercel Nomad Neo broadband vibrators, for enhanced resolution, deep imaging and reservoir characterization featuring our EmphaSeis™ broadband sweep combined with CleanSweep™ anti-distortion technology
  • High-fidelity vibroseis featuring bespoke in-field processing and QC of continuously recorded acquisition and advanced analysis of vibroseis metrics such as ground force
  • Near-surface characterization using multi-physics methods to generate more accurate shallows models to enhance seismic imaging

Services that Add Value to Your Projects

Our depth of multi-disciplinary expertise allows us to provide a unique range of services to enhance your onshore exploration projects:

  • Geoscience and operational training for your supervisors and in-country staff
  • Reservoir-oriented feasibility studies and advanced survey design to ensure the survey parameters are optimized to deliver the data you need
  • Fast-track Subsurface Imaging services for tight exploration and drilling deadlines
  • Detailed near-surface geological models which can reveal drilling hazards and enhance seismic imaging
Reservoir oriented feasibility studies
Reservoir-oriented feasibility studies allow us to design surveys to meet your reservoir objectives. Seismic inversion results (timeslices of P-Impedance at the reservoir level) for a set of three different acquisition geometries (from sparse on the left, to high density on the right) show the impact of survey parameters (source and receiver line spacing in particular) on the value of information of land seismic acquisition.
