HOUSTON, Oct. 30, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- ION Geophysical Corporation (NYSE: IO) today announced a new 3D multi-client program onshore Mexico, which is fully supported by industry funding. The Tabasco 3D reimaging program will seamlessly integrate and reimage 46 data sets with the latest technology into a contiguous volume that ties the onshore and offshore plays at the prospect and regional scale. The initial 6,500 sq km phase of the 19,000 sq km program has commenced and is expected to be completed during Q1 2019.
"While the Sureste basin has been extensively explored, we believe newly reimaged data will reveal insights that will unlock additional exploration potential at a low evaluation cost," said Joe Gagliardi, Senior Vice President of ION's E&P Business Development. "This data set builds on our reimaging success in the area and will allow clients to tie and compare offshore 3D data and potential exploration targets to existing onshore production. ION has repeatedly demonstrated its unique ability to rapidly and cost-effectively deliver a cohesive regional perspective using existing 3D seismic and well data."
