Industry-Leading Offshore Seismic Data

The United States Gulf of Mexico has been a target of large-scale oil and gas exploration for over a century. It currently accounts for 17 percent of the total U.S. oil production and 5 percent of the total gas production. The area has historically been the testing ground for new drilling technologies promoting rigs capable of operating 250 miles offshore in ocean depths greater than 10,000 feet.
