ZURICH, Switzerland -- Spectraseis has formed a multi-year joint industry project (JIP) for the research and development of low frequency seismic technologies for hydrocarbon reservoir detection and characterization. The cooperative program is called the Low Frequency Seismic Partnership (LFSP).

Confirmed participants in the LFSP, which will run for three years through 2012, are Cairn, Chevron, ExxonMobil, GDF Suez, and Pemex. An Asian national oil company will also join the LFSP over the coming months.

The scope of the LFSP program will cover key application elements of low frequency seismic technology, such as data acquisition and processing, as well as fundamental theoretical studies, in partnership with researchers at Spectraseis, the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich, and the University of Bern, Switzerland.
