Good things come in small packages

Bridgeporth are working with Glasgow University to deploy their sensitive MEMS based gravimeter in the exploration industry. Initial tests will involve acquiring data alongside a conventional land meter to compare the accuracy, repeatability and usability of this new technology with existing instruments.

Suriname – unlocking hydrocarbon potential

Take a look at the latest edition of GeoExpro……… AustinBridgeporth explore the application of FTG data and how it is a vital tool for unlocking the hydrocarbon potential of onshore Suriname. To read the article in full please click here: GeoExpro Vol 13 No.4  

Keeping your data safe

Bridgeporth and the British Geological Society (BGS) are pleased to announce a new service, GeoVault®, a data repository for non-seismic geophysical data. GeoVault® can take care of all your data management requirements, such as the organisation, conditioning and loading of exploration data. This frees you from a data management overhead and ensures that the data are readily accessible on demand from the secure central database server.

Gravimetry or Gravity Gradiometry – Which is the Correct Tool?

Bridgeporth’s Chief Scientist, Dr. Gary Barnes, will be participating in the forthcoming 78th EAGE Technical Programme in Vienna. Gary will be presenting on 3 June at workshop ‘WS16 – Potential Fields and their Gradient Tensors in the Integrated Inversion of Geophysical Data – New Advances and Perspectives’. He will discuss when gravity or gradiometry is the most appropriate measurement to be acquired and how this choice affects subsequent inversions for the target geology.

AustinBridgeporth and Staatsoile to conduct gravity survey over onshore Suriname

Bridgeporth’s parent company, AustinBridgeporth is to conduct a multi-client Broadband gravity survey. AustinBridgeporth in collaboration with Staatsoile Maatschappij N.V will acquire a combination of Full Tensor gravity Gradiometer (FTG) and scalar gravity data to provide a comprehensive database to aid future exploration activities.

Bridgeporth commences Oyster Oil & Gas airborne gravity and magnetic survey in Djibouti

Oyster Oil & Gas Ltd has announced the commencement of an airborne gravity and magnetic survey in the Republic of Djibouti flown by Bridgeporth. The acquired gravity and magnetic data will cover onshore and offshore areas in southern Djibouti. Bridgeporth will also be processing and interpreting the acquired data.

Football brings people together

On a recent survey, the Bridgeporth crew (some who are lifelong Swansea fans!) contributed to the Somaliland Football Development Foundation. Bridgeporth donated football kits for three teams and thirty footballs for this very worthy cause that will be used by the children of Burao. Somaliland Football Development Foundation (SFDF) is a non-profit, charitable organisation that uses the power of football to improve the lives of both boys and girls in under privileged communities of Somaliland.

Processing Ascending

Bridgeporth’s Processing Department reached a significant milestone recently. The Processing Geophysicists in the department have processed over 500,000 line km of marine potential field data, that’s more kilometres than the circumference of Jupiter. In the 3 years since the department started it has not only processed marine potential field data but also airborne and land gravity and magnetic data that has been acquired by Bridgeporth or other service providers. Software used for processing is Geosoft’s Oasis Montaj together with proprietary Bridgeporth software. Other services provided are re-processing and merging of legacy datasets, mapping of satellite and Landsat imagery using GlobalMapper.
