Potential Applications of SFD® Surveys

SFD® surveys can be used to: 

  • Kick start evaluation of new concession blocks or basin areas
  • High-grade unexplored acreage
  • Evaluate prospectivity of blocks in advance of bid rounds
  • Focus and optimize the scope of future seismic surveys
  • Provide additional verification or validation of prospects identified by seismic and other geophysical methods

Sample use cases shown below: Prospect Identification and Prospect Verification

Prospect Identification


Frontier exploration, licensing and technical evaluation areas

  • Identify areas of best reservoir potential to focus seismic acquisition
  • Enable decisions on purchasing or relinquishing lands
  • When there is no time to acquire seismic prior to bidding, SFD® can rapidly evaluate potential bid blocks and
    provide a competitive edge

Re-evaluation of potential in mature areas

  • Identify areas with remaining reservoir potential
  • Focus resources and data purchase decisions

Lead generation and prospect evaluation

  • SFD® is effective in any geologic settings, both onshore and offshore
  • Enables re-evaluation of seismic to envision other types of plays that would normally be bypassed
  • Provide independent verification of reservoir potential
  • Correlate data to known reservoir analogs
