Mexico 2D GeoStreamer

Provides regional context and fundamental understanding of hydrocarbon prospectivity
Website Map for Survey Mexico MC2D
Acquired in collaboration with Schlumberger and Spectrum Geophysical, between May and December, 2015, this was the first MC2D program offshore Mexico since the passing of the energy reform bill.
A larger well tie program connects shallow and deep wells across the Gulf of Mexico, providing invaluable regional geological context to supplement data provided by the Mexican Government in support of their first deepwater licensing round.
Fast track, as well as prestack time and depth migration products are available to assist deepwater evaluation before the license round.
