In 2002, BGP became a liability-limited company after merging with six other Chinese geophysical companies. The new company is located in Zhuozhou city, Hebei province, sixty kilometers south of Beijing.
The main business of BGP includes:
• Onshore, offshore, TZ seismic data acquisition
• Seismic data processing and interpretation
• Reservoir geophysics
• Borehole seismic surveys and micro-seismic
• Geophysical research and software development
• GME and geo-chemical surveys
• Geophysical equipment manufacturing
• Multi-client services
BGP currently has 115 land seismic crews, 9 shallow water and transition zone crews, 8 VSP crews and 21 non-seismic crews operating in 45 countries on 4 continents. The operations are conducted in a wide variety of terrain conditions, such as gravel plains, mountains, deserts, jungles, swamps, marshes, shallow water and transition zones. In 2006, BGP launched its offshore seismic program. At present, BGP has six vessels, one 2D streamer vessel, two 2D/3D streamer vessels, one 6-streamer 3D vessel, one 12-streamer 3D vessel, and a 4C OBC vessel.
Since 1961, BGP has provided quality services for more than 140 energy companies at home and abroad,including major national and international oil companies.
BGP strictly follows the international guidelines for Health, Safety and Environmental Protection set forth by the International Association of Geophysical Contractors and the International Association of Oil and Gas Producers.
We also understand that it is geo-talent that makes it possible for BGP to maintain a sustainable development. Therefore, BGP has as always attached great importance to technology advances. Our recent R&D is focused on high-density seismic surveys, wide-azimuth acquisition, complex structure imaging, 3C/3D VSP, 3C/3D seismic, and stratigraphic reservoir studies. BGP released its "PAI" Technological Package in Rome during EAGE 2008, developed by BGP with 40-plus years of hands-on experience and in-depth expertise from worldwide operations. PAI provides advanced solutions for challenging issues in different surface conditions. We also have started to develop our own seismic recording systems to provide better services for our clients.
