Jaguar Exploration, Inc., is providing seismic acquisition quality control (AQC) for a BPZ Energy (NYSE:BPZ) project in northwest Peru. The 2D acquisition project is being conducted by BPZ in Block XXII in the Lancones Basin. The project is the first field use in Peru of Jaguar’s proprietary JagSeis® Seismic Acquisition Management & Quality Control System software.
Jaguar President Julio M Jimeno notes, “It’s a combination of great opportunities for us – not least of which is the chance to work for BPZ, with whom I have had a long-term relationship. Also, now that our JagSeis system has been thoroughly ‘road-tested’ in Peru we look forward to using it for other clients and their projects.”
JagSeis software is the new web-based management system that optimizes administration of all phases of a seismic survey, and lets clients follow operations’ progress, reports and statistics 24/7 anywhere Internet access is available. It is securely available to clients in their offices online.
The JagSeis system helps implement and supervise seismic projects effectively with built-in reporting templates. It allows automatic comparison of pre-plots and daily progress for improved accuracy and real-time budget control.
“Using the JagSeis system minimizes field errors by replacing QC workers’ ‘traditional’ spreadsheets with professional data capture,” says Henno Siismets, Jaguar’s vice president of operations. “And the system lets us use hand-held GPS units to capture real-time data on the fly.”
The JagSeis AQC and HSE capabilities being used for BPZ are two of six modules designed into Jaguar’s advanced software, which was formally debuted at the SEG 2010 conference in November.
