Dense Urban Environment in the LA Basin
Spawned Friendlier 3D Seismic Survey Design

By Rachel Stocking
Rachel Stocking


In April 2012, Signal Hill Petroleum and NodalSeismic completed an unprecedented urban friendly 3D seismic study of the Long Beach / Signal Hill
field. The survey proved that seismic acquisition in a dense urban environment
can be done effectively and efficiently if the right technique and tools are applied. After several years of attempts, they succeeded by combining a completely redesigned operations approach, a local government and community education strategy, a never-before-used cable-free recording system, and innovative techniques for operating both new and old equipment.

This talk will focus on the case history of this urban friendly 3D seismic survey. Some of the topics to be covered include (a) the reasons why a company should do seismic surveys; (b) the challenges they faced because of the urban setting; (c) what attempts they have tried before; (d) the details of their latest 3D seismic survey; and (e) how they plan to use the data to improve the recovery and production of this urban field. 

Rachel Stocking is Business Development Manager for NodalSeismic, LLC. Her background is in public relations and marketing, and comes to the seismic industry after having practiced public relations within the oil industry. Rachel holds a degree from California State University at Long Beach.

We look forward to seeing you on Tuesday, January 15th.
