Oil & Gas Awards Judges Comments
“Through their work in Long Beach, they were not only able to accomplish a practical task related to oil and gas exploration but also provide a unique data set recognized by academia as uniquely advancing the science of seismology – all done whilst achieving a high level of environmental stewardship in the local community. Wow!”
“The company is on the leading edge of acquisition in low quality data areas and areas with complex subsurface geology. The fact that they were able to shoot a 3D survey in the Signal Hill area of Los Angeles and obtain high quality data is a tribute to their ability to deliver on their promises.”
