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.
We undertake subsurface exploration in the following sectors
Assuring the maintenance of the energy supply from fossil fuels. Using oil and gas in a safe, sustainable and ethical manner.
Using the natural thermal energy of the earth to heat, cool and produce electricity for our homes and cities.
Seasonal energy storage is essential for the energy transition. Our expertise allows us to identify and characterise suitable sites.
Ensuring the efficient and safe storage of CO2 produced by industries throughout Switzerland and the world. We are pioneers in this area.
Establishing and managing water resources sustainably to improve drinking water supplies in regions that are arid as a result of drought or climate change.
Undertaking exploration campaigns to search for the mineral deposits needed to generate and store the renewable resources necessary for the energy transition.
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.
