Geotrace to Participate in Seismic Research

Geotrace has announced its participation in the Edinburgh Anisotropy project as a three year sponsor. This sponsorship will allow Geotrace to further enhance its four component (4C) processing, and also participate in research into new anisotropic capabilities.

The EAP is a consortium supported research team working under the Seismology and Geomagnetism Program at the British Geological Survey (BGS). The principal objective is to investigate the application of seismic anisotropy to the oil industry.

"As the industry moves towards more advanced development phase techniques it is particularly important to have leading edge technology in the area of anisotropy" said Bill Schrom CEO of Geotrace. "It is particularly relevant to the continuous monitoring of fields using four component permanently emplaced systems, and the advent of wide azimuth both in marine and land environments surveys."
