AustinBridgeporth to acquire airborne enhanced Full Tensor Gravity Gradiometry (eFTG), Gravity, Magnetics and LiDAR in Indonesia

Pertamina has chosen AustinBridgeporth in collaboration with PT. Mahakarya Geo Survey to acquire ‘enhanced Full Tensor Gravity Gradiometry’ (eFTG) data. The airborne survey will acquire eFTG, fully integrated scalar gravity, magnetics and LiDAR data and will be flown onshore and offshore West Papua. The objective of the survey is to deliver a detailed geological structure map which will provide new insight into the sub-surface and help reactivate exploration activities in the region. During the survey, Pertamina will receive fast-track ‘Interim Images’ that will build a picture of the subsurface as the survey progresses. The ‘e’ in eFTG signifies the next generation of Airborne Full Tensor Gravity Gradiometry technology combining the best design elements of all previous types of Lockheed Martin commercial gravity gradiometers.  The resulting 24 sensor triaxial measurement system provides the world’s highest signal-to-noise ratio of any gravity system…

ABI posters at PETEX

AustinBridgeporth have 2 poster sessions at PETEX 2018. Both posters are based results from recent airborne FTG surveys in Morocco and Greenland.

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.
