Data listed on SDLS used by
over 85% of the brokers in Western Canada
SDLS was created in 2002 by the merging of three of the industry’s
largest seismic line databases - those maintained by Divestco
Inc. and Sigma Explorations Inc. The
three databases were compiled, compared, and corrected as
necessary. Areas where data was missing were filled by aggressive
and systematic solicitation of data releases from data owners.
Since 2002 there has been significant
consolidation of the seismic data brokerage business and currently
over 85% of the industries brokerage firms in Canada use the
SDLS database as their main source of information. Information
gathered by these companies through the process of quality
inspection is entered back to the SDLS database providing
a constant source for refined and enriched attribute information.
More accurate line locations, vintage, fold, source, shot
point numbering and other attributes are just a few of the
ways SDLS is constantly improving.
No other database can compete
with the value added to the SDLS database by the subscribing
brokerage firms using the database in their normal course
SDLS Expands its Coverage
SDLS contains data coverage for all active oil and gas areas
in Canada. Due to the constantly changing nature of our industry,
explorationists are increasingly looking outside the Western
Canadian Sedimentary Basin for information. SDLS is responding
to this need by expanding our coverage in other areas. We
are actively soliciting additional line locations in the US,
NWT, and Eastern Canada. Our coverage includes both onshore
and offshore data locations. If your company would like to
offer its line locations, please
