Spectroscopy IPSS


We offer a range of acquisition techniques to address passive seismic challenges.


Designed to work in combination, as well as alongside our technologies, passive seismic provides enhanced reservoir imaging to optimize field operations.



PSS -low frequency anomalies over an oil prospect, are the low frequency-dependency attenuation effects over the seismic field in presence of porous saturated media.


Effect of fluid distribution on P- wave propagation in partially saturated rocks is the main responsible for the reservoir-related wave field absorption.


The passive seismic wave field in oil-saturated porous media and pressure differences between regions with different fluid/solid properties induces a low frequency-dependency of the attenuation (Qp , Qs) and then a velocity dispersion (Vp ,Vs) of the wave field.

Infrasonic passive seismic spectroscopy quantifies the low frequency absorption effect related with hydrocarbon saturated media over an exploration prospect.


IPSS Advantage and Benefits

The quality of results and the advantages over conventional seismic, clearly indicate the benefits of this method, in oil, gas and geothermal exploration and delineation.


Passive Seismic

IPSS and PST passive seismic exploration disciplines observes and measures the natural or induced seismic activities occurring underground.


Microseismic Monitoring

Long-term microseismic monitoring in hydrocarbon reservoirs has the potential to reveal fracture geometry.


Passive Seismic IPSS operations

Explorations for hydrocarbon and geothermal purposes.
