Seismic data has traditionally been used to identify hydrocarbon reserves by enhancing the geological understanding of prospect areas prior to drilling. Through technological advances, this has also been utilized recently as a technique for reservoir exploitation.

Boone Exploration, Inc. will provide clients with every phase of geological acquisition including:

  • Project Planning
  • Permitting and Title Work
  • 3D Acquisition Design
  • Surveying
  • Shot Hole Drilling
  • Mini-hole Drilling
  • Alternative Energy Sources
  • Seismic Data Recording
  • Data processing including pre-stack migration

Acquiring seismic data involves generating and transmitting acoustic energy into the subsurface, which is reflected back at various frequencies and amplitudes from geologically distinct layers. This energy, which returns to the surface, is detected by small, uniformly spaced, motion-sensitive transducers called geophones that convert the mechanical energy into electrical signals.
The resulting electrical signals are then amplified, converted into digital form and transmitted via radio link to a central control unit for recording and storage on magnetic tapes. Stored data is then delivered to the oil and gas company for processing and interpretation to determine possible location of hydrocarbon bearing formations.

The Opseis family of Telemetry systems is radio based exploration systems that optimize the gathering of subsurface geophysical data. The Seismic Acquisition Remote (Eagle SAR) contains the electronic circuitry to pre-amplify, filter and digitize the analog input from the geophones.

In addition, the Opseis unlimited channel capability, makes multi line and multi trace programming, as well as 3D seismic projects, a reality.

The efficiency and high production of the Opseis systems allows Boone Exploration, Inc. to venture “where only eagles dare”, from the waters of the Gulf of Mexico, across the swamps and marshes of the Gulf coast, through vast fields of the great plains, over the peaks of the Rockies to the delicate and fragile tundra of Canada and Alaska. Even in areas that have been difficult to survey such as urban areas, highways, rivers, canals and existing production fields, the Opseis family greatly outperformed cable systems.
