Our company, having considerable experience (over 25 years) of performing its services within the waters of the Caspian Sea, the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov, as well as within Volga and Kama water areas, has a proprietary geologic-geophysical seismic database, including over 35,000 linear km 2D CDP, along with the adjacent land CDP-VSP-GIS integrated data, which is used for survey planning and rough data interpretation (Fig. 1).

Our highly trained professionals are always ready to assist with any geologic-geophysical problems in the above mentioned survey areas.

Based on the available and proven archive recordings we compiled:         

  1. North Caspian Geologic-geophysical and Ecological Atlas (in 3 volumes, 1996);
  2. Middle Caspian Geologic-geophysical Atlas (in 3 volumes, 1998);

The North Caspian and Middle Caspian Atlases are based on the sets of the major seismic zones structural and litho-facial maps, geological and time sections which characterize geological structure, as well as oil and gas potential of the Caspian deep and shallow water area, adjacent dry land of Russia, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan  and Turkmenistan  (Fig. 2-5).

The generalized maps were scaled 1:500 000 and 1:1 000 000, whereas detailed mapping was scaled 1:200 000 and 1:100 000.

The information presented in the atlases is constantly updated based on the latest CDP-VSP-GIS drilling data.

  1. The change of the owner was in June 5th, 2015.Geo Energy Group LLC being one of the major geological and geophysical holdings in Kazakhstan became 100% owner and the main partner of GGS-Khazar.In this regard the company was rebranded. For the present moment the full name of the company is a limited liability company Global Geophysical Services Khazar, abbreviated company name - in Russian and GGS-Khazar LLC in English. Please see the changes in Logo
  2. GGS-Khazar LLC is a legal successor of PGS-Khazar LLC and is liable for its debts and agreements. The previous resources as fleet, equipment, and personnel are kept the same. The vessels, hull and geophysical equipment have undergone regular preventive maintenance during out-of-season 2015-2016. The vessels have ship class survey with RMRS, amendments are made in ship documentation with regard to free navigation up to the spring 2017. The company is exploring its participation in different tenders from HRS and acoustic surveys to 3D4C acquisition.

The Company opportunities can be extended by attracting if necessary the parent company resources including onshore and offshore facilities.
