About Wireless Seismic

OUR BACKGROUND

On A Mission

In 2006, Wireless Seismic was formed by a group of exploration and production innovators with the mission to develop and commercialize the first wireless seismic data acquisition system with the ability to collect data in real-time.  The resulting technology, the RT 1000, was successfully launched in 2010, revolutionizing onshore seismic data acquisition.

In 2012, Wireless Seismic launched RT System 2 (RT2), incorporating next generation technology and many enhanced features. By immediately transmitting the data to a central location, RT2 eliminates the longstanding risks of data loss and reshooting due to unit theft, damage, or malfunction and the issues related to data collection and transcription.

Innovative and Incomparable Technology

RT3 was launched in 2017 to address the growing market need to acquire much denser onshore seismic surveys. RT3 is designed to provide better quality, high-density subsurface images, while lowering capital and operating expenses through automation, lower equipment costs, and reduced weight. The smaller footprint and crew headcount reduces cycle times and HSE exposure.

Also in 2017, Wireless Seismic, Geokinetics, and Total E&P Research & Development announced their partnership in developing METIS, which aims to significantly reduce cycle times and optimize HSE performance while acquiring and processing 3D land programs in difficult areas worldwide. Based on the RT3 technology, Wireless Seismic is providing the real-time recording infrastructure that supports 150,000+ channels; the high-speed, real-time radio telemetry system; and the seismic recording unit deployed from aerial drones.

Today, Wireless Seismic provides the industry’s only fully scalable wireless seismic recording system with real-time seismic data acquisition.  RT3 and RT2 are easy to use.  The operator never has to worry about data visibility and acquisition speed—limitations that may be found in other cableless systems.  No other system, be it hybrid wireless or nodal, comes close to the performance level of RT3 and RT2.

Backed With Confidence

Wireless Seismic is backed by Chesapeake Energy Corporation, one of the largest onshore producers and the largest user of seismic data in the United States; Energy Ventures, an independent venture capital firm dedicated to upstream oil and gas investments; and Total Energy Ventures, the corporate venture capital arm of the French major oil and gas company, the Total Group.
