Our expertise in drilling and drill-related project management helps ensure a profitable program for companies engaged in the acquisition of 3D seismic data.
OMNI Exploration Support Services has comprehensive industry knowledge, a steadfast commitment to safety, a wide range of technologically superior equipment and unmatched project management perspective to give our customers competitive advantages.
Permitting: Contract permit agents conduct project geography research, contact landowners and negotiate and acquire permits and landowner consents for the survey, drilling and recording crews to conduct their operations. Agents assist personnel in the field with landowner relations and permit restrictions in order to reduce downtime for noncompliance.
Survey: Following the determination of the source and receiving points of data, contract personnel plot each location with both GPS (for open land areas) and conventional survey equipment (for wooded areas).
Source Point Handling: OMNI’s drill crews are deployed to drill (generally to depths of 40 feet to 180 feet) and load the source points. After the raw seismic data has been acquired, it is sent to a data processing facility where it can then be analyzed to identify and monitor movements of hydrocarbon formations.
