Dawson Geophysical Expands Seismic Crew

Dawson Geophysical Company will field an additional seismic data acquisition crew in response to continuing demand for its high resolution surveys. This expansion will bring the crew complement to eight. Improved market conditions are a direct result of more favorable prices for crude oil and natural gas obtained by the Company's client base.

Founded in 1952, Dawson Geophysical Company acquires and processes 2-D, 3-D and multi-component seismic data used in analyzing subsurface geologic conditions for the potential of oil and natural gas accumulation. Dawson's clients -- major and intermediate-sized oil and gas companies and independent oil operators -- retain exclusive rights to the information obtained.

The Company operates highly mobile, land-based acquisition crews throughout the lower 48 states. Data processing is performed by geophysicists at Dawson's computer center in the Midland, Texas headquarters. The Company also provides data processing services through the Houston, Texas office.
