The Global Advantage:
Human & Geoscience Knowledge Capital, Highest Technology Capabilities, and Innovative Culture
The proven track record of our management team has been instrumental in attracting some of the most successful and experienced industry professionals to Global. The company grew from three to over 325 employees in our first year of operation. Today we employ over 800 people worldwide, and we will continue to expand our employee base as we mobilize new seismic crews around the world. Global employees have hundreds of years of cumulative experience working seismic operations in over 100 countries and in almost every major hydrocarbon basin.
Global offers high density, Reservoir Grade 3D (RG3D®) seismic solutions for exploration and reservoir management.
RG3D® products offer increased spatial resolution and improved signal-to-noise
ratio for enhanced imaging of geologic structures.
A survey acquired with RG3D® technology offers source and receiver density
disproportionately greater than the incremental cost over a conventional 3D survey.
Global’s geophysicists are also experts in crew operations, project management
and logistics, thereby optimizing survey efficiency and crew productivity.
Processing & Imaging Solutions:
Our E&P Services division offers data processing, geophysical, geological, and engineering services, and is an expert provider of azimuthal processing solutions for enhanced imaging and fracture prediction.
High-fidelity time and depth imaging
P-wave fracture prediction
AVO prospecting and portfolio ranking
Regional studies and reservoir characterization
Since launching the first crew in May 2005, Global has purchased over150,000 channels of Sercel 428XL and 408UL recording gear.
Global's fleet of more than 90 new ION Geophysical AHV-IV vibrators includes seventy 62,000-pound units and 80,000-pound vibrators, including track vibes.
Global uses leading edge technology with proven effectiveness to deliver high density seismic surveys:
Implemented the first-ever HFVS (High Fidelity Vibratory Seismic) survey using
Sercel 428XL electronics
Selected by ION and BP for the first commercial implementation of ION’s new
FireFly™ cableless recording system
Completed the first commercial implementation of the Ascend Geo Ultra™ cableless
Integrated the XLR8 Weight Drop with the Morooka carrier, creating an ultra mobile,
reliable, high energy output source package.
We have a stark absence of politics and bureaucracy that nurtures the entrepreneurial spirit and encourages the innovative process within our organization. Innovation requires experience, resources, knowledge and the confidence to think outside of the box. We understand that our clients’ needs and perceptions must be at the forefront of our decisions in developing successful seismic solutions.
Global seeks to employ highly motivated, entrepreneurial people who are industry experts with a broad experience base and who have extensive client relationships.
Global encourages a culture of cost-consciousness as a core value, and every employee is challenged with the responsibility of minimizing overhead and operating expenses.
Our company has over 33% employee ownership—our personnel have a vested interest in ensuring that we manage expenses without compromising the rapid response time, high level of productivity and the unmatched quality of service that we strive to provide our clients.
