• Faster Delivery

    Good planning is the key to fast, reliable project execution.


    • Minimizes the time to acquire
    • Reduces the risk of acquisition surprises that can disrupt E&P development schedules
    • Enables rapid response to unexpected events
  • Reduced Cost

    TesserACT enables effective cost/quality decision making.

    Reliable and easily available image quality and operational cost metrics ensure that your 3D survey is the best possible investment to exploit your sub-surface resources.

  • Better Imaging

    The best image requires
    the best technology,
    the best people
    … and careful planning.

    TesserACT allows you to get the most out of your acquisition and processing technology by ensuring that you focus your effort on the most critical targets.

  • Reduced Environmental Impact

    The right shots, in the right places…
    … No more, no less.

    Reducing environmental impact is not just the right thing to do … it’s good business.

    • Easier permitting
    • Faster, safer, cheaper operations
  • Land, Marine, Seabed & Mixed Mode Surveys

    ACTeQ provides TesserACT 3D survey design software to the world’s leading E&P companies, geophysical service providers and consulting companies.

    TesserACT is a powerful integrated survey design package for land, marine, seabed and mixed mode projects.

  • Reduced Health and Safety Risk

    TesserACT reduces health and safety exposure.

    Optimized design reduces field exposure hours.

    Integrated GIS tools identify high risk areas up front and aid risk mitigation strategy development.

  • Independent. Neutral.

    ACTeQ is the only provider of onshore and offshore survey planning software and services that is not controlled by a major oil field service provider.

    ACTeQ is the only choice for unbiased survey planning solutions.

ACTeQ is the only full service supplier of 3D seismic survey planning and operational analysis software for land, marine and seabed applications, that is not affilliated with a major geophysical service provider.

What we do...

ACTeQ provides game changing 3D seismic survey design software and innovative, experienced personnel. Our mission is to enable E&P companies and service providers to collaborate in the design of 3D surveys delivering increased return on investment.

3D seismic surveys have become the most important exploration and production tool for oil and gas companies. The last 20 years have seen an explosion in acquisition and processing technology available for land, marine and transition zone surveys:

Slip sweep
Smart phones
Sim source
5D interpolation
Pre-stack migration
Compressive sensing
Marine vibrators
Imaging with multiples
Smart phones
Survey design has not kept pace with the rate of innovation in acquisition and processing …. Until now. TesserACT software from ACTeQ ensures that you get the most from your investment in the latest acquisition and processing technologies for land, marine, transition zone and mixed mode surveys.
