The requirements of exploration for oil, gas and coal are varied, and depend on the size and depth of the target, the material properties of the overburden and the terrain being explored. We are experienced in designing and implementing seismic surveys and are well-practiced in meeting the unique challenges of exploring New Zealand’s backcountry.
We offer both 2D and 3D seismic reflection surveys to image basin structure and stratigraphy. We can acquire both P-wave seismic reflection for on land targets (down to 1km), as well as higher resolution P-wave and S-wave surveys for coal and other stratabound deposits nearer the surface (50-300m).
Imaging contacts, horizons, and faults with 3-5m thickness and offsets is possible with good survey design, high-quality acquisition and careful processing. Typical applications include elucidating deep basin-scale geology, identifying small-medium scale structure for geological modelling, highwall design and mine planning. Data is inverted to depth domain for ready inclusion into your geological model.
