Exploration

Our mission is to accompany you in your subsurface exploration project.

Ad Terra provides support for numerous Swiss and international clients in their subsurface exploration projects. As a result, we plan and supervise seismic acquisition work on a daily basis.

Some examples include the 2D and 3D seismic campaigns for geothermal exploration or waste treatment in Switzerland, as well as internationally for the oil and gas industry. Our expertise also includes mineral exploration and prospecting operations, which consists of the collection and analysis of new and existing technical data along with investigative work in the field.

Our experts process data from different sources, for example, geophysical (i.e., active or passive seismic) or petrophysical (i.e. well log) data.

We provide accurate and advanced data interpretations to help our clients achieve their exploration goals and optimise the subsurface potential. For example, our teams were able to discover naturally fractured zones for geothermal drilling or interpret well data to evaluate the potential and yield of a reservoir.

We have experience in a variety of projects, including carbon sequestration, sustainable water management, energy storage, mining exploration, oil and gas, and geothermal energy. Our company is innovative and flexible in our scope to provide to our clients optimal and responsible subsurface exploration.

Swiss Geo Energy

Advice based on practical experience

In order to offer our clients geothermal advice based on real field experience, Ad Terra has initiated Swiss Geo Energy: a geothermal exploration, development and production project designed with both sustainability and cost-efficiency in mind. The goal is to transfer skills and apply our extensive experience gained from traditional energies to demonstrate the economic and power generation potential of geothermal energy.
