Bottom Simulating Reflectors (BSRs) occur at the base of a shallow gas hydrate layer in many of the world’s deepwater basins, but how can they be used to assist basin modellers in their exploration and production workflows?
GeoStreamer X is a broadband multi-azimuth acquisition and state-of-the-art depth-imaging solution. Here we demonstrate the suitability of the dataset for reservoir characterisation by delineating near-field exploration opportunities and providing better reservoir understanding in the South Viking Graben, Norway.
The combination of existing OBN technology, innovative survey design, and DM-FWI technology is a real step-change in high-resolution model building for oil and gas exploration, from the shallow to the deep, as proven in this recent acquisition survey in the Gulf of Mexico.

A newly acquired 3D seismic survey, covering the entire Zechstein play fairway in the UK Mid North Sea High, reveals the hydrocarbon potential of the complex and highly variable Intra-Zechstein plays on the flanks of the European Permian basin.
A ‘Need-to-Have’ for understanding the regional and detailed geology of the Norwegian Sea. With recording lengths down to 16s TWT, MCG’s Regional Deep Imaging (RDI) MC2D project enables a full view of the mega-structures to be mapped - including the Moho.
Offshore Somalia has all the ingredients for finding big volumes of oil and gas, with reservoirs, source rocks and seals and multiple play-types including large fold-belt structures and enormous reef closures.
