Slovenia 3D Survey

January 8, 2010 [Budapest, Hungary]

AGS recorded the largest 3D seismic survey in Slovenia history, covering 200 square km with 10000 station and source points.  The acquisition area included approximately 50000 individual land tracts represented by 30000 landowners.  An innovative approach to survey design proved to be a key factor in overcoming the permit challenges, significantly reducing the impact on the large landowner group. The survey will help identify and produce additional hydrocarbon resources in northeastern Slovenia.
