New Seismology Firm Launches Website

SeiSpec launches a web site to help track the development and testing of their recently patented seismic acquisition technology. Important in the production and discovery of oil and gas, the SeiSpec process improves underground imaging through improvement of the signal to noise ratio.

The coming weeks and months will be a critical and exciting time for SeiSpec

SeiSpec, LLC., a Texas firm organized to further the development of a new approach to seismic acquisition, has opened a website at

The SeiSpecâ„¢ Process uses narrowband seismic waves to develop and search for resources like oil and natural gas, and is patented by the firm's owners, inventor J.L. Love and geophysicist Charles I. Puryear.

"The coming weeks and months will be a critical and exciting time for SeiSpec," Love said. "We are about to undertake the proof of concept phase, at the end of which we expect to have demonstrated that our process can produce an image of any given underground deposit superior to any that has previously been possible."

"We know there are people who are anxious to follow the progress of the testing phase, and the website will make it possible for us to make that information available in a timely way," Love added.

Visitors can follow progress by checking the site regularly, or by signing up for special email notification, according to Love. There are also links to the patent document itself as well as other information about the company.

The testing will be performed under the auspices of Dr. Bob Hardage, Bowling Professor of Exploration Geophysics at the University of Texas and Senior Research Scientist of the Bureau of Economic Geology, one of the most respected geophysicists in the world.

Traditional seismic acquisition produces a broad spectrum of waves in a wide range of frequencies. The SeiSpec process instead uses a narrow band chosen to resonate with the hydrocarbon reservoir itself. This eliminates junk feedback wavelengths and thereby dramatically improves the signal to noise ratio, and thus the quality of the image of the underground target.
