Abstract:
This data set includes general information about most offshore eastern Canada, hydrocarbon exploration geophysical surveys. It also contains detailed location information on seismic reflection programs. Included are: program code, operator name, general location, survey type and description. The data set includes line names and decimated shotpoint location coordinates for many non-confidential (as defined by regulation) surveys. The collection is part of the BASIN database which contains a wealth of geological, geophysical and engineering information related to years of hydrocarbon exploration and development, primarily in the offshore areas of eastern Canada. Data has been compiled from many sources including well history reports, various journal publications, and reports by the GSC and regulatory agencies.This data is used primarily by government, industry and academic researchers to explore and map the offshore sedimentary basins of Eastern Canada. The main purpose is to identify and quantify producible hydrocarbon resources. The data provides baseline data for research as well as for exploration and development decision making.
