We are terrex seismic

Our mission

At Terrex Seismic, we all come to work every day because we want to change the way the world utilises seismic data. Too often clients struggle with balancing the operational efficiencies of a seismic project with the geophysical objectives of a seismic survey. Having acquired more than 1,000 surveys to date, we understand this balance better than anyone. The ability to map subsurface structural and stratigraphic features is more important than ever as we navigate how to best meet the evolving energy needs of our planet.

Our people are passionate about the services we provide. We strive to minimise our environmental footprint whilst continually delivering outstanding operational results. We hold ourselves accountable for results and endeavour to always act with integrity, transparency, and professionalism.

Our founding

Terrex Seismic (originally Geosystems) has existed and operated in Australia since 1981. After identifying the opportunity to help unlock the energy potential of Australia’s largely underexplored resources, our founder Steve Tobin purchased the Australian division of Geosystems in 1997. The company was then rebranded and repositioned as a geophysics-driven, operationally focused seismic acquisition company.

Our mission is to shape the future of the seismic industry by creating unparalleled value and opportunity to our clients, employees, and the communities we operate within.

Where we’ve come from

Terrex Seismic is one of the world’s most experienced seismic contractors, having worked for the last 38 years in every major Australian onshore sedimentary basin as well as in numerous other locations around the world. We have acquired over 1,000 seismic surveys to date and pride ourselves on consistently supporting and serving the industry, bringing equipment and technical innovation to the forefront of seismic exploration regardless of the unpredictability of the cyclical nature of the resource industry.

In April 2017, private equity group, Allegro Funds decided to invest in the Terrex Seismic journey. Seeing tremendous possibility in both the people and the DNA of Terrex Seismic, Allegro Funds become our majority shareholder. Allegro’s commitment to finding new paths to pave the way to better business coupled with Terrex Seismic’s unwavering drive to deliver the world’s most innovative seismic solutions has enabled Terrex Seismic the opportunity to again embrace innovation and transform into Australia’s first broadband nodal company.

Where we’re going

With access to world-leading seismic technology and an unrivalled focus on providing geophysics-driven solutions to today’s energy challenges, Terrex Seismic is determined to shape the future of the seismic industry. Given that the economics of de-risking drilling prospects is more important than ever before, and that new discoveries are becoming harder to find, Terrex Seismic is passionate about offering our clients seismic solutions that are aligned with their strategic objectives. The journey ahead is an exciting one, and we pride ourselves in serving the ever-evolving requirements of global energy supply.
