Time-lapse (4D) seismic has been proven as a reservoir management tool. By acquiring successive seismic images on the same producing field, geophysicists can identify by-passed oil, optimize exploitation drilling investments, and better manage injection programs. The key to 4D seismic is repeatability, and the keys to repeatability are owned by ION. 

To ensure that your 4D surveys successfully meet your reservoir development goals, ION offers a suite of solutions for 4D seismic programs, including:

  • Asset assessment and feasibility study services
  • Survey design services
  • Streamer acquisition technologies
  • Seabed acquisition technologies
  • Data management software and services
  • Seismic data processing

Our 4D solutions are even more powerful when coupled with our full-wave technologies. ION's digital, full-wave sensor, , gives us a natural advantage in monitoring fluid movements from the ocean bottom (using VectorSeis Ocean, our redeployable seabed acquisition system). For 2D and 3D , , , and support highly repeatable time-lapse acquisition using towed streamers. 

Given our toolkit and experience, the ION family of companies is the partner of choice for designing and executing critical 4D programs.

Full-Wave Imaging Solutions - ION Geophysical

It's also about designing a tailored survey for long-offset, wide azimuth data acquisition, taking into account the nuances of planning a survey to enhance the P-wave signal and, perhaps, acquire converted wave data, and processing the data to account for azimuthal velocity and anisotropy.


Integrated Seismic Solutions ISS | ION Geophysical

By working in partnership with experienced seismic contractors in ISS projects, ION aligns with the priorities and objectives of both oil & gas companies and acquisition contractors, focuses on the value-added elements of the seismic workflow, and delivers solutions with minimal capital intensity and asset utilization burden.


Solutions - ION Geophysical Corporation

ION full-wave technologies are helping oil & gas companies and seismic contractors tackle complex imaging challenges where a solutions approach - spanning hardware, software, and survey design and imaging services - is required. Yet we transformed the company in 2004, through the acquisitions of Concept Systems and GX Technology, to become a leading, technology-focused seismic solutions provider.
