AustinBridgeporth comprises two global providers of geoscience services. Austin Exploration, who have been delivering land and marine potential field acquisition services since 1976 and have an extensive data library of land and marine gravity and magnetic data covering the Americas, Asia, Africa and Europe. While Bridgeporth was formed in 2011 by a group of highly experienced geoscientists to provide acquisition for non-seismic airborne and land data plus LiDAR, radiometric and hyperspectral imagery, processing and interpretation services to national and international operators in oil and gas exploration, mining, corridor mapping, and research.
The acquired businesses will bring to AustinBridgeporth a team of talented professionals with extensive geoscience technology skills in areas that include marine, land and airborne data acquisition, QC, processing, interpretation, project management, and software development.
Lucky roll of the dice
Christian Richards, AustinBridgeporth’s EAME Sales Manager, was one of the lucky winners of GeoExpro’s “roll the dice” competition at APPEX2019. Christian and Matt Tyrrell from PGS won brand new copies of An Introduction to Exploration Geophysics with Recent Advances at American Association of Petroleum Geologists.
AustinBridgeporth gravity & magnetic data invaluable to Greenland Gas & Oil
Check out an article in the latest edition of GeoExpro on the Jameson Land Basin in Greenland, one of the last remaining undrilled Atlantic Margin basins. AustinBridgeporth acquired airborne full tensor gravimetric, magnetics and LiDAR data over Jameson Land for GGO in August 2017. The data are currently being integrated into the new seismic interpretation to provide an enhanced insight into the structural geometry of the basin.
Both the gravity and magnetics are proving to be invaluable with regards to identifying major compositional basement changes, depth to basement estimates, and defining the extent and distribution of Tertiary igneous intrusive sills and dykes that are prevalent in the southern parts of the basin. The LiDAR data has also been useful in the mapping of the surface expression of these doleritic dykes, together with other major lineaments that often represent faults and fractures.

First FTG in Côte d’Ivoire
Earlier this year AustinBridgeporth completed acquisition and processing of an Airborne Full Tensor Gravity Gradiometry (FTG), gravity, magnetics & LiDAR survey for Tullow Oil over seven onshore licences in Côte d’Ivoire.
To commemorate a successfully completed survey Tullow presented AustinBridgeporth COO, Dave Bolger, with a specially designed memento for all those involved in the survey.
