Gain insights to the seismic and G&G market 

Understand how the global seismic, geophysical and geoscience market is trending.

We provide seismic and G&G intelligence though analytics, data and advisory services focusing on the oil and gas supply chain. Our market view is channeled through thematic reports, detailed factsheets, a steady flow of commentaries and bottom-up databases that are updated weekly. Clients can connect with our leading industry experts and go deeper through customized advisory services. 

We deliver everything you need relating to the different elements of the seismic market. Track licenses awarded, upcoming licensing rounds and seismic libraries. Understand how these drivers impact spending and revenues for contract and multiclient seismic, seismic data processing, surveys, and other geological and geophysical services. All forecasts are derived from our bottom-up, field-by-field coverage of energy projects, offering a breakdown of buyers' budgets split by the various service sectors. This level of granularity enables detailed analysis of unit counts, sanctioning and capital and operational expenditures. 

We collaborate across disciplines to build a deep understanding of the oilfield technology domain. In-house geologists allow us to combine a good technical understanding with the commercial aspects of exploration to understand the market potential going forward. Working with service companies, operators and governments, we assess the commercial potential for new technologies, from reservoir to surface, supporting acquisitions, market assessments and internal R&D processes.
