The ION family of companies is unique in the industry. No other single company has our breadth and depth of solution capability. The ION legacy is firmly rooted in advanced hardware and equipment. Yet we transformed the company in 2004, through the acquisitions of Concept Systems and GX Technology (GXT), to become a leading, technology-focused seismic solutions provider. In addition to hardware, we now have a rich capability in survey design and advanced imaging services, as well as seismic data integration software. 

Collectively, this portfolio of tools gives ION an advantaged capability in developing and delivering customized, integrated solutions across the entire seismic workflow. Working back from our oil & gas company customer's imaging objective, we develop tailored solutions that integrate advanced hardware, software and expert services. Our ultimate goal is to make data transfers more seamless, improve image quality, and reduce cycle time and cost at every stage of the seismic workflow. 

  • Survey design and planning
  • Technology evaluation and selection
  • Project management services, including coordination of the field acquisition process by experienced contractors

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. Complex imaging environments in which full-wave solutions show great potential include:

By implementing new mindsets and new workflows, ION can work hand-in-hand with our customers to address old problems with new solutions.

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.


Marine 4D Seismic Survey and Imaging Solutions

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. The key to 4D seismic is repeatability, and the keys to repeatability are owned by ION.


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.
