3D Seismic survey for Wintershall

GT maintains a leading role in oil & gas exploration in Europe successfully completing another seismic project in Germany. The 3D seismic survey was carried out on behalf of Wintershall in Bockstedt area.

GT has completed over 30 seismic campaigns in Germany since 2001. Apart from majors such as RWE Dea and GDF Suez, GT performed works for the following companies: Central European Petroleum and Rhein Petroleum, Future Water Energy, GEOenergie Bayern, MAX STREICHER, GTK Geothermie Kraftwerke and GeoEnergy.

The surveys were aimed at oil & gas exploration, development of geothermal reservoirs and underground storages. 2D and 3D seismic surveys have been conducted in different parts of Germany: Bayern, Rheinhessen, Thüringen, Spreewald, Ostseeküste and Ostfriesland. Various energy sources have been used, ranging from vibroseis and explosives to air-guns and weight-drop. Seismic data have been acquired by GT’s seismic crews in urban, agricultural and environmentally protected areas with extensive sensitiveness to the environment and local communities.
