Seismic data acquisition

Being well-equipped and employing highly qualified and experienced personnel, we are fully prepared for seismic surveying under various conditions both on-shore and in transition zones. We offer economically effective methodological and technological solutions that comply with international standards of high-quality and safe work performance.


Seismic data acquisition


Yug-Neftegaz Private Limited devotes special attention to environmental protection and commits itself to the concept of “green seismic survey”. We have developed special technique and designed special-purpose equipment for surveying in transition zones, marshlands, shallow waters and other difficult-to-access areas. This innovation allows us to eliminate usage of explosives as a seismic source for transition zones. Presently, this technique enables us to acquire high-quality seismic data in shallow wetlands and marshlands while inflicting no harm to environment.

Our services:

  • seismic survey consulting,
  • seismic survey planning and design,
  • full range of “turn-key” 2D/3D on-shore seismic surveying of any level of complexity, 
  • full range of 2D/3D transition zone seismic surveying subject to the “green seismic survey” concept,
  • supportive seismic methods: LVL surveying (refraction survey and uphole velocity survey), engineering seismics and micro-seismics


Seismic crew personnel are adequately trained and experienced for seismic surveying in various desert areas. One of the advantages of Yug-Neftegaz Private Limited is that it has possessed the fleet of all necessary equipment ready to commence operations within the shortest possible time.


The success of our operations in desert areas is determined by the fact that Yug-Neftegaz Private Limited is giving sufficient attention to and allocating the required amount of resources for:

  • thorough and comprehensive preparation for each project,
  • identification and minimization of all the risks associated with work performance,
  • communication with local communities and addressing their concerns,
  • project-focused training of all personnel involved,
  • choosing appropriate equipment and facilities.

RT System 2 

The industry's only fully scalable wireless seismic recording system with real-time and cable-free data transmission. The Wireless Remote Unit (WRU), is the heart of the RT System 2. These small units contain a complete seismic acquisition and radio relay system inside the waterproof aluminum case.

The analog-to-digital converter is state of the art, one that has been widely adopted by most manufacturers of seismic systems because of its outstanding analog performance and low power consumption.

Units for producing seismic signals 

Simultaneous operation of vibro sources grouped in a fleet of 4 - 6 units provides for a sufficient energy level necessary to achieve successful results of seismic explorations within the depths accessible for any modern drilling equipment.


Desert area operations


Yug-Neftegaz Private Limited has developed an innovative technique of vibration and impulse seismic data integration for seismic surveying in transition zones. The technique has successfully been applied. At the same time, we have completely abandoned the use of explosives as a seismic source.

For this purpose, our company has designed and manufactured a universal floating electromagnetic impulse seismic source. This source allows for seismic surveying in hard-to-access areas such as:

  • coastal sea areas, bays, shoals, lagoons,
  • swamps, marshes, meadows and other similar flood-endangered areas, 
  • shallow areas of lakes and river deltas,
  • environmentally sensitive areas, both on-shore and off-shore, where the use of conventional sources - seismic vibrators, explosives and air guns is technically impossible or prohibited.

Such source has minimum impact on the environment and it has successfully been applied in seismic surveys in the areas inaccessible for conventional seismic sources.


Transition zone operations


Being fully aware of importance for preserving the environment, Yug-Neftegaz Private Limited is treating the issues of natural objects protection attentively and responsibly, especially for operations in environmentally sensitive areas.

In order to minimize or fully mitigate the negative impact upon the environment during seismic surveys, the following measures are taken:

  • thorough training of all personnel for operation in environmentally sensitive areas addressing the specific features of each project,
  • involvement into the planning process of stakeholders responsible for environmentally sensitive objects in a region,
  • consideration of key environment features in production schedules for each case,
  • seismic data recording with wireless systems only,
  • the use of the light-weight transport vehicles instead of heavy-weight ones,
  • solely manual execution of most operations in particular cases.


Operation in protected environmental zones


Yug-Neftegaz Private Limited has got all the necessary experience and special-purpose equipment for successful operation in populated, industrial and arable areas. To perform seismic surveys in such areas and ensure safety, we use a range of measures, such as:

  • preliminary seismic survey approval by the operation site owners,
  • careful and thorough assessment of HSSE issues to avoid damage to personnel, equipment, third parties and environment,
  • risk identification and minimization,
  • preliminary notification of local population as regards forthcoming operation with all available means, including local and regional media,
  • the use of wireless seismic acquisition systems and combination of source types to mitigate the risk of damage.
