Singapore 3D Survey

GSSL completes first ever 'Land 3D Seismic Survey' conducted in down-town Singapore.


Geophysical Services Singapore Pte Ltd are pleased to announce that we have successfully completed Singapore’s first ever 3D Land seismic survey in the "downtown" area of the City State, marking a major advance forward for GSSL's “City Seismic” technology.

The survey was acquired in an environmentally sensitive public area, with no impact on the environment, and to the highest safety and work standards. Whereas a borehole drilling campaign would have taken months, GSSL were able to map an area 300 meters by 100 meters within 3 days, producing high resolution seismic data sections of the highest quality.

City Seismic, GSSL methodology, allows for the acquisition of seismic data in a city environment. Acquired data can be stacked into 2D cross sections or 3D cubes, giving the end user a 3D perspective of the subterranean Geology in the area of interest.

The survey was made possible by the introduction of the latest 3D seismic data acquisition technology using a wireless seismic data recording system. GSSL used Quantum GeoServices to process the data.

The survey was acquired with super high-resolution specifications, allowing the area of interest to be mapped in great detail, including a detailed profile of the bedrock, faults and fractures. Identification of such geological anomalies is one of the key critical components required by our client for the safe and efficient process of their work.

The survey brings to Singapore a step change in the building and construction methods being employed, and allows companies to meet the technical and timing challenges of the industry in Singapore.

City Seismic can be used for Construction, Geotechnical, Fault Location, Pipe Location, Water Table, Oil and Gas, research, infrastructure mapping.
