London Business Design Centre
ION Stand: F2

PETEX is the largest subsurface-focused global conference and exhibition in the UK.

With a technical program primed to discuss the latest global activity in exploration, field development, reservoir management and unconventional exploitation, and numerous opportunities for networking, PETEX’s audience reflects its high quality, technical conference content.

In addition to the technical conference, the event will host an exhibition space to feature industry operators, service companies, national oil companies, financial companies, and professional organizations.

Visit with ION experts live in London and Online during the exhibition opening hours:

Tuesday             Nov 23 08:30−17:30 (Networking & Drinks 17:30-19:30)
Wednesday       Nov 24 08:30−17:30 (PETEX Social Evening 17:30-19:30)
Thursday           Nov 25 08:30−17:30 

MNSH Prime 3D delivers high-quality 3D seismic data of the Mid North Sea High to reveal the potential in the Zechstein play and beyond. The multi-client acquisition program covers approximately 11,530 km2 and is tackling one of the remaining underexplored sections of the UK Continental Shelf. Processed and imaged with a full range of modern techniques, the program covers the entire Zechstein play, revealing the hydrocarbon potential of the complex and highly variable Intra-Zechstein plays on the flanks of the European Permian Basin. The regional 3D data set will be acquired and processed in multiple phases: with Phase 1 data available now, Phases 2 and 3 data available in Q2 2022, and additional acquisition planned for 2022.

We have applied our cutting-edge acquisition technologies to the MNSH PRIME 3D project and provided field proven remote service solutions support (enabled by ION’s cloud-based applications).  As a result, increased operational efficiencies, reduced costs and lower carbon footprint were achieved during the acquisition stages. ION’s experts will be onsite to showcase acquisition highlights from Phase 2 and to introduce our latest developments for survey optimization. 

Visit the ION stand and learn more about our solution for the offshore QC market which replaces the current, manual model of traditional marine navigation QC. The state-of-the-art, remote QC from ION enables geophysical service providers and E&P companies to manage seismic surveys in real time, through a centralized and automated database reporting system.

Our Imaging & Reservoir Services team delivers enhanced subsurface images with a combined comprehensive suite of advanced velocity modeling and imaging technologies and our extensive global experience. We have one of the industry’s most experienced teams of geoscience professionals, who collaborate with clients to solve their most difficult imaging challenges.
