Seismic Acquisition QC

Verif-i’s seismic acquisition qc service is designed to instil trust in the procedures, safety measures, crew competency and instrument proficiency of this vital stage of a seismic project. The strategy must be cost-effective, and data must be gathered quickly and accurately, but safely. Verif-i’s QC consultant will guarantee that project goals and HSE standards are maintained throughout.


Let’s build a team

Everyone involved in a seismic data quality control project has similar goals. Each team member has a vested stake in the mission’s success. But, ultimately, all key actors agree on one point: safety standards and best practices must not be compromised. So let’s take a look at the team players:

  • The client: You describe your plans. We make sure that your goals and values are clear and introduce you to our QC consultants.
  • Verif-i’s Lead QC consultant: He contributes his technical expertise, communication skills, and vast knowledge in all aspects of seismic data acquisition QC, from sourcing to generating to recording. He synchronises operations and unifies all participants in the project.
  • The crew: All members of the seismic team from the contractor’s lead to various subcontractors answer to the seismic acquisition QC consultant. Verif-i’s seismic QC represents the client, monitoring the competence of each team member and ensuring that every aspect of the project proceeds according to plan.
  • The public: Town planners, civil servants and land-owners will ensure that preventive measures will be taken to protect their specific interests.


Why Verif-i for seismic acquisition QC?

Our specialists were responsible for developing Verif-i products due to their own prior experiences in the industry. This fact demonstrates how our QCs arrived at their positions with a solid understanding of the demands of seismic data acquisition standards. They are well-versed in all facets of seismic audits.

Many of our quality control specialists are HSE experts who are well-versed in the standard’s rules and regulations. They are acutely aware of the need to stay abreast of changes in procedures and the equally risky potential for static or complacent behaviour from crew members or equipment. Our QCs understand that quality control must be maintained from the beginning to the end of a data acquisition project.


Testif-i Light

Verif-i’s QC consultants benefit from the assistance of Verif-i’s excellent Testif-I Light software. Seismic audits deal with an immense volume of data. Data sorting and evaluation cannot be done manually. Only a capable software package, such as Testif-i Light, is up to the task. Similar to the well-known Testif-i package, it includes both land and marine modules. However, it focuses on the functions required for quality control and avoids getting bogged down in unnecessary detail. For example, the software includes geophone and vibrator checks and records streamer sensitivity and noise.
