UG(N)L’s Technical Alliance with Integrated Data Services Limited (IDSL)

The company operates a ‘non-exclusive’ Technical Alliance with IDSL, which over the years has successfully concluded a total of 24 (twenty-four) high resolution 3D & 4D seismic data acquisition surveys in both land and swamp environments.

Clients have included; The Shell Petroleum Development Company (SPDC - who also awarded The Alliance the first ever 4D land survey conducted in Nigeria), The Nigerian Agip Oil Company (NAOC), The Nigerian Petroleum Development Company (NPDC), The Nigerian National Petroleum Company (NNPC), Chevron Nigeria Limited (CNL), The Pan Ocean Oil Company of Nigeria (POOC), Newcross Petroleum Limited (NPL) and more recently Niger Delta Petroleum Resources (NDPR). In several cases surveys were successfully conducted in extremely difficult areas where previous attempts had either failed or been only partially successful.

With over fifty years of combined experience and one of the highest Nigerian content ratios in the seismic industry, the Technical Alliance understands the difficulties and complexities of operating in the Niger Delta. All operations are carried out to the highest technical and operational standards, with the utmost respect and sensitivity to the needs and aspirations of host communities.

Present and Future Operations

Today the company is well positioned to conduct 2D, 3D and 4D geophysical surveys either on a stand-alone basis or in partnership with IDSL on a project by project basis.
