DMT contracted for 3D seismic survey in Landau

The technology service provider DMT GmbH & Co. KG, Essen/Germany, has been awarded a contract for a high-resolution 3D vibro-seismic survey to determine the geological structure of the subsoil in the Upper Rhine Plain. The seismic project will deploy approximately 7,000 wireless geophones and cover a total of around 58 km2 in the Landau region (Rhineland-Palatinate). DMT will use vibro trucks of different sizes, depending on the nature of the terrain and how built-up particular areas are. The project is for Winters-hall, the largest German producer of crude oil and natural gas, and is due to last from December 2016 to March 2017.

Special about this survey is that due to the range of vehicles used, DMT is able to adapt extremely well to the environment. This means that smaller vehicles are used in residential areas. Furthermore DMT uses wireless geophones as measuring sensors. By eliminating the need for cables, there is no trouble crossing railway tracks and roads. Such wireless technology also facilitates large measuring campaigns in particularly short time periods, therefore conserving the natural environment.
