The geophysical community is focused on optimizing future exploration and production (E&P) of much needed oil and gas resources while addressing legitimate—and perceived—environmental and safety concerns. Priorities include reducing the environmental footprint of geophysical exploration activities both onshore and offshore and understanding the impact of marine seismic sources on cetaceans. Geophysical technology can also contribute to improving the overall environmental performance of the E&P industry, such as by improving drilling success rates and hence reducing the number of wells required.
