Central Asia: Cutting Edge Technology in Frontier Exploration

Central Asia represents an exciting frontier for oil exploration, from sub-salt to sub-thrust exploration. The region remains a hive of activity, boasting some of the largest oil and gas fields in the world, including Yolotan (Turkmenistan), Gazli (Uzbekistan) and Karachaganak (Kazakhstan). The implementation of new technology has revealed significant new potential in the Amu-Darya, Ustyurt and Afghan- Tajik Basins.

ObliQ Technology Improves Seismic Imaging

In a marine geophysical survey, every attempt is made to maintain the streamer at a constant optimum depth. But there are issues involved in selecting that optimum depth; too shallow, and the record tends to be noisy; too deep, and a ghost notch appears in the useful bandwidth of the seismic signal.
