Simultaneous supervision


  • Reporting variations to the contractually agreed time schedule between the contractor and the client/operator
  • Reporting variations to the cost of the processing project, for a 2D transition zone project in Bangladesh and seismic reprocessing of a shallow water 3D seismic project offshore Ghana

  • Represent the client/operator at meetings,
  • Undertake seismic design
  • Process/QC seismic data in the client’s offices.
  • Take minutes of all project related meetings attended including the detailed seismic processing information discussed at the meeting
  • Prepare a progress report each week to the client, incorporating observations and recommendations from meetings with the contractor

  • At the end of each project, a short report was submitted highlighting the objectives of the work and whether or not these objectives were achieved. Conclusions and recommendations were an important part of these reports
  • Technical and commercial supervision of seismic processing and seismic reprocessing completed, without a requirement for the operator to be physically present, therefore providing a more cost-effective solution
  • The seismic processing was conducted to the required industry standards and the necessary QC steps were implemented by the seismic processing team
