BGP has been conducting seismic exploration in desert areas for more than 20 years with advanced equipment and integrated technologies in field acquisition, processing and interpretation. Crooked line, wide line and 3D surveys have been carried out in different desert areas both at home and abroad. The techniques of geometry planning, field static correction and scattered noise attenuation are highly developed. In data processing, new methods of data analysis, residual static correction and pre-stack noise suppression in multi-domain have been developed. Elaborate well calibration, velocity field construction and updating and fault seal evaluation have been used in geological interpretation. These techniques have been applied comprehensively to the desert seismic data and desirable results have been achieved. Up until now, BGP has successfully carried out many desert seismic contracts in Saudi Arabia, Libya, Yemen, Kazakhstan, Pakistan and China. BGP anticipates an increase in successful desert operations in the future for oil companies worldwide.
Desert operation in Saudi Arabia
With the development of oil exploration, reservoir studies have become more and more difficult. The survey target, in many contract blocks, has shifted from convenient and easy seismic operation areas to Gobi (unconsolidated fill), desert, and loess plateau, and from the center of the basin to the margins with difficult topography or mountainous belts. All these changes in the seismic survey force us to operate with an integrated strategy in terms of acquisition, processing, and interpretation, to analyze the comprehensive geological and geophysical information, and then set up the proper operational procedures.
BGP has acquired a great deal of experience in mountainous seismic exploration. BGP now has more than 20 crews with equipment dedicated to mountainous projects, with an annual production ability of 20,000 km of 2D and 5,000 k㎡ of 3D seismic. The total production BGP has contracted to date is about 100,000 km of 2D and 8,000 k㎡ of 3D. BGP has conducted many successful surveys both at home and abroad, in areas such as Western China, Yemen, Pakistan and Peru.
