Largest onshore 3D Seismic Survey in Australia
 

In August 2016, acquisition of the largest onshore seismic survey was completed by the Terrex Group. The Snowball 3D Seismic Survey was acquired starting in Queensland and crossing the border into South Australia.

 

The surface area covered 1,680 sq km which is equal to the area of Greater London.  At the height of acquisition Terrex utilised 25,000 channels and 150,000 geophone sensors.  Other resources included over 150 personnel, 80 light vehicles and 30 heavy vehicles.

 

Services included remote mobile camp facilities, cultural heritage survey and data gathering, seismic line preparation, seismic data recording, infield processing and seismic line restoration.
