Double naming ceremony for 3D seismic survey vessels

Purpose-built 3D seismic vessels incorporate the advanced features and maritime technologies for minimising the vessels environmental footprint including the risk of accidental pollution into the marine environment.

Wave equation migration imaging gives clearer sub-salt definition

A novel seismic imaging technique which can penetrate difficult geologies such as salt formations could raise the Gulf of Mexico to a whole new level of exploration importance. Sean Ottewell reports

Increasing array of 4D kit as the market shows steady growth

Since 4D and related systems came into use in the mid-1990s, there has been a steady growth in the market and growing array of kit and techniques designed to improve data quality and therefore provide better reservoir management tools. Jeremy Cresswell reports

Oil supply set to grow to 2030 with no peak evident

Above ground drivers, not the amount of below ground resources will be crucial factor to flow of oil supply in the coming decades. Peter Jackson reports

Sub-bottom survey of geological boundaries in the Arctic Circle

Though there may be vast, technically recoverable oil and gas reserves beneath the sea north of the Arctic Circle there are enormous challenges when operating in such a harsh environment. Neil MacDonald reports

Remote exploration: the changing world of satellite communications

In what is a highly data-intensive industry, ships once had to collect seismic and other exploration data and bring it back with them when the ship next docked in port. But, as the search for oil and gas moves into deeper waters, satellite technology is the only realistic option for communication. Simon Watts reports
