A feasibility study performed ahead of tender process leads to better understanding. It provides all useful information needed to define the most suitable technical parameters that will optimize the level of information the seismic survey can provide. This is an optimization process; it aims to add the maximum value for the allocated budget.
The level of analysis requested is discussed with the client. It goes from pure theoretical designs, taking advantage of all previous work done over the permit area to the full preplanning after a detailed scouting of the area.
All relevant geophysical methods with the potential of adding value to the overall project are considered.
