The Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG), the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG) and in conjunction with the Society for Sedimentary Geology (SEPM) are excited to host, IMAGE 2021 ‒ the International Meeting for Applied Geoscience & Energy. The three societies will hold this integrated annual meeting over the next five years, the first of which will be a hybrid event.

The SEG, AAPG, and SEPM have joined forces to create this powerhouse event bringing together multiple disciplines of the geosciences sector. IMAGE ’21 combines all the great elements from each society’s previous annual meetings under one roof.

Visit with ION experts live on the virtual ION stand during exhibition hours:

26 September, 5:30 PM–7:30 PM (Icebreaker Reception)
27 September, 9:00 AM–6:00 PM
28 September, 9:00 AM–6:00 PM
29 September, 9:00 AM–1:00 PM

Plan to virtually attend one or more of our live data tours on Monday, 27 September and Tuesday, 28 September to hear about the latest images from our multi-client programs in Latin America, Northwest Europe, North Africa and more. Check out the schedule and register now.

The ION and PGS global 2D exploration data library, a collaboration that began in June 2020, comprises of a million-line kilometers of seamless data to inform exploration business decisions for E&P operators. This includes many areas of genuine broadband seismic that have a substantial opportunity for integration and reimaging.

Our Gemini™️ Extended Frequency Source is a broadband seismic source technology that is able to generate the <4Hz frequencies required to image in complex geologies where penetration of low frequencies is key. Designed to function as a single point source and not an array, Gemini’s compact profile provides for easier, safer back deck deployment and more environmentally friendly operations than a typical multi-gun array.

Optimize field production, performance and recovery with our new seismic acquisition and the latest processing flows. Our 3D data products, such as MNSH Prime 3D, in the Mid North Sea High, and Picanha 3D, in Southeast Brazil, are unparalleled in image quality. Learn more about our regionally calibrated and consistently imaged 3D data sets.

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

Marlin™️, ION’s integrated software platform, helps customers transform their marine data into intelligent information. It provides greater control and transparency in the management of offshore operations through a common operational picture. Learn how Marlin can help you reduce costs, improve vessel management and strengthen your overall safety performance.

Our Remote QC has been used in the field to deliver automated QA against survey specifications, to onshore clients, resulting in reduced costs, increased operational efficiency, and improved resource utilization. ION’s software experts will be available to discuss the latest enhancement to our core software products including MESA®, MESA® SimSurvey™️, Orca® and Gator™️ during IMAGE ’21.

We’ve adapted methodologies developed for 4D marine acquisition that benefit 3D towed streamer surveys. The Swath Matching Technique has been applied on a Mid North Sea High (MNSH) 3D survey to demonstrate the benefits of predicting oceans currents on survey efficiency. This method can be applied in any area where there is a reasonable level of current predictability. A detailed case study will be available during IMAGE ‘21.

ION is an established leader in innovative and high-end technologies in the marine geophysical industry. Contact us to learn about ION’s range of integrated, industry leading technologies for seismic source, and to hear about our marine technology development plans.
