Planning/Design

In the planning/design phase of a 3-D survey, we begin by considering the geology of the rocks that are being imaged. Dawson geophysicists are involved with each survey design to ensure that the seismic acquisition parameters are optimized with regard to data quality and cost.  Simply put, your geology is matched with the optimum survey design to meet your geophysical and geological imaging requirements.

To determine the appropriate design, we examine a range of rock properties, including:

  • Depth
  • Structural dip
  • Rock density
  • Rock velocity
  • Reservoir complexity

Economic and implementation issues addressed include:

  • Topography
  • Vegetation
  • Permits
  • Roads
