STRYDE, Geopartner Geofizyka partner for seismic survey for one of Europe’s largest oil, gas exploration projects

(WO) – Global onshore seismic experts, STRYDE, has secured a contract to supply more than 20,000 seismic receiver nodes to enable one of Europe’s largest oil and gas exploration projects in Poland.

Geopartner Geofizyka, the geophysical survey company, has invested a six-figure sum into STRYDE’s equipment as part of a 3D seismic survey for an oil field exploration and development program by a major Polish oil and gas operator.

Seismic acquisition of the 300 square kilometer area, which is being tipped as one of Europe’s largest oil and gas developments, is due to be completed in May 2023 and marks the second time that the company has invested in STRYDE’s innovative and nimble technology, having previously purchased 1,500 nodes for another project in August 2022.

STRYDE’s nodal technology will be used to perform a high-density 3D seismic data acquisition working alongside vibroseis trucks that will provide the source technology to send seismic signals into the ground that reflect off various rock formations underground, which are then measured and recorded by STRYDE Nodes and processed into an image that can be interpreted by geologists.

The contract also included field support services from STRYDE’s expert operational support team who were able to offer on-site training, start-up support, and survey operational advice for the crew based in Poland.

Amie Foster, Global Account Manager at STRYDE said, “Our miniature nodes have allowed Geopartner Geofizyka to reduce crew size and vehicles on-site, which in turn has resulted in a lowered environmental impact, less operational logistics, and rapid access to seismic data.”

CEO of Geopartner Geofizyka, Jecek Słowiński, added, “As the global demand for energy increases, companies need high-resolution images of the subsurface to make informed investment decisions for development. Having already worked with STYRDE technology to acquire seismic data in Poland, we have been impressed by the quality of the data acquired by such a low-cost, fully autonomous seismic system and we are proud to offer this solution to our customers.

This agreement follows a series of contract wins already secured by STRYDE in Q1, where the technology has been used to acquire onshore seismic data for exploration and monitoring of the subsurface for multiple sectors, including oil and gas, geothermal, CCUS and much more.
