Multi-component Seismic Acquisition


Vecta Oil & Gas has developed and patented technologies that permit multi-component (nine-component, or 9C) seismic data to be effectively acquired, processed, and interpreted. As employed by Vecta, 9C seismic surveys capture separate shear wave (S-wave) and compressional wave (P-wave) data in a single survey. Rather than relying on converted P-waves to generate S-wave data, Vecta maintains and operates its own vibroseis trucks capable of generating S-wave data. S-wave seismic data generated with these source trucks delivers superior signal-to-noise ratios. S-wave seismic trucks are a valuable but rare asset in the oil and gas industry.
