Environmental friendliness of our FDR Technology exploration activities is yet another significant engineering achievement that compliments our one-of-a-kind direct mineral deposits visualization technology. The FDR technology does not harm the environment at all, and does not have any social footprint. It is a long-expected solution for many pressing problems.In spite of many efforts taken by many seismic exploration regulatory bodies to mitigate the survey consequences as the scale of exploration increases, there are no suitable measures to minimize the environmental and social impact.
Offshore seismic surveys have the most severe consequences. Wales, dolphins, and fish are harmed at a large scale. The impacts of seismic surveys are felt on an extraordinarily wide geographic scale. For example, a single seismic survey can cause endangered fin and humpback whales to stop vocalizing—a behavior essential to breeding and foraging—over an area at least 100,000 square nautical miles in size. Airgun surveys also have serious consequences for the health of fisheries. For example, airguns have been shown to dramatically depress catch rates of various commercial species (by 40 to 80 percent) over thousands of square kilometers around a single array, leading fishermen in some parts of the world to seek industry compensation for their losses.
Independent research shows that onshore seismic surveys produce both immediate and long term impacts on the flora and fauna. The restoration of wild territories such as tropical forests and other highly sensitive ecosystems takes a long time. With the introduction of 3D seismics the seismic grid density is very high. Most license blocks which are promising in terms of exploration are located in remote, hard-to-reach areas, and lack infrastructure. It leads to significant increase of the conventional survey method costs. The conventional technology also features some technical limitations. Moreover, most part of the territory remains unexplored, and its potential is not fully discovered.
