Houston, United States
Houston is ION's headquarters. By serving clients in this highly competitive market, our Houston center built its reputation for leadership in PreSDM and complex, subsalt imaging in the Gulf of Mexico.
Our Houston center now serves as a hub for global training and knowledge transfer across our other centers while continuing to deliver seismic images of the highest quality within the budget and timing constraints demanded by our customers. As pioneers of reverse time migration (RTM), we are committed to generating innovative solutions to the toughest imaging problems, whether offshore or onshore.
