Landtech Geophysics Ltd

Landtech Geophysics Ltd

LandTech was the first company to apply passive seismic services to the oil industry since its establishment in 1998 and has become the leader in High Resolution 3-D Passive Seismic Tomography surveys worldwide.Specifically, LandTech employs new, high-tech methods for oil and gas exploration and oil field development under service contracts with oil producing companies, both foreign and domestic. An advantage that LandTech Passive methods have over competing seismic exploration service companies derives from its use of the new developed geologic structure imaging technology. This technology provides significant additional information concerning the location and physical characteristics of an oil and gas reservoir beyond that which can be obtained using conventional seismic methods, and does so at a substantially lower cost. LandTech has carried out a number of large projects using this technology and currently others are in the negotiation stage.

LandTech is a leading global provider of passive seismic data and associated products to the oil and gas industry. LandTech specializes in the planning, acquisition, processing, interpretation, and marketing of 3-D Passive Seismic Tomography surveys worldwide. LandTech also offers proprietary seismic acquisition and processing services, Engineering Geophysics surveys, Seismological investigations.

By using innovative in-house designed seismometers and recording all little cracks and groans of the earth (microearthquakes) we use them as seismic sources (similar to the way a medical CAT-scan uses X-rays) to derive high resolution 3D seismic tomography images of compressional P-wave velocities, shear S-wave velocities, Poison's ratio and quality factor for the whole of an exploration block no matter how difficult the topography is and at a fraction of the cost of conventional seismic. Patented neural technology provides lithological information and proposes drilling sites possessing the highest probability for successful wells. This technique has nothing to do with the so called direct hydrocarbon indicator or low frequency passive seismic which is based on the assumption that a hydrocarbon field alters the natural seismic noise, something which is not true!

Since the formation of the company in 1998, LandTech has provided a range of Geoscience Consultancy Services to the petroleum and associated industries. Landetch has gained a reputation for providing clients with a fully integrated service built around independence, professionalism and the expertise of its personnel.

LandTech’s philosophy has four key building blocks which have contributed to the current success of the company and also form a sound base for the future growth and diversification of the group.
