The crust of earth has a lot of wealth stored under it. One such wealth is the fossil fuel which is hidden beneath the rocks. Explorers appointed by the oil and natural gas companies do the extensive seismic survey of the place in order to provide first hand report of the place whether the place is fit for the exploration of oil and natural gas or not. The seismic wave which is being used to detect the earth quake is used to detect the possibility of the availability of oil and natural gas.
How seismic surveying is conducted?
Seismic surveying is conducted by using the seismic waves; the same seismic waves which are being used to study the possibility of earthquake are used to prepare a detailed map of the crest of the earth to explore the reservoirs of oil and natural gas. These surveys are conducted by the geophysicist who send the waves beneath the earth and record them when they come back. Thus, with the help of these waves they prepare the map which is being used by the explorers of the oil and natural gas company to identify the places which could be the reservoir of oil and natural gas.
Who does the survey?
The oil and natural gas company hires the professionals to study the possibility of exploring the oil and natural gas at a particular place. These professionals are highly experienced people who have been doing the same work for years together.
