The strength of our global organisation allows us to explore across all geological and geographical environments, using industry-leading technology and capabilities.

Full Wavefield Inversion (FWI)

Full wavefield inversion (FWI), a key component of ExxonMobil’s EMprise seismic capability, uses supercomputing technology to provide geoscientists unparalleled insights into the physical characteristics of rocks and geologic structures in the subsurface.

Seismic mapping

Four decades ago, ExxonMobil pioneered an exploration technology called 3-D seismic, which uses sound waves to form sharp three-dimensional images of underground formations, facilitating the location of oil and gas deposits. Now, 3-D seismic is standard throughout the energy industry.
