Seismic Survey

Seismic Survey is the primary tool used for Exploration in the Petroleum industry. The main purpose of the seismic survey is to anticipate where the oil or gas available in plenty.  The survey is done by creating a Seismic wave on the surface of the ground along a predetermined line. These waves travel inside the Earth and it is reflected by subsurface formations, where the time taken is recorded by Geophones. By analyzing the time taken by the wave to reflect off subsurface formations and to the surface, a geophysicist can map the subsurface formations and anticipate where the oil or gas available in large quantities for Exploration.
