PolandSPAN is a large, regional seismic program covering all of Poland in four distinct phases. This one-of-a-kind program will provide the foundation of integrated geologic knowledge and a consistent seismic framework from which to build future studies.
Phase 1 will extend from the Baltic Basin in northern Poland through the Podlasie Depression and into the Lublin Basin of eastern Poland. It will be comprised of 2200 km of newly acquired, high-quality data. Once completed, this program will create the most comprehensive picture of Poland's subsurface to date.
- Provide a regional, depth-imaged seismic framework to promote a better understanding of the area's tectonic architecture and basement structure
- Reveal the regional structure, thickness distribution, facies changes, and stratigraphy
- Reveal crustal control on known and inferred fault zones
- Minimize influence of the Zechstein (U. Permian) evaporitic cover on seismic imaging of the sub-salt depth interval in the northwest and central part of the country
Key Components (Phase 1)
- 2200 km of newly acquired high-quality seismic data with improved depth imaging and regional coverage
- 3400 km of existing seismic data reprocessed to ION's SPAN imaging standards
- New MT acquisition for improved sub-Zechstein geologic modeling and imaging
- 39 key well ties
- Integrated geologic and geophysical interpretation (seismic, MT, grav, mag, well data)
- Improved understanding of key geologic features in a basin-wide context
