TERRA-IQ Ltd. specializes in providing oil companies with expertise in leading-edge geophysical technologies for reservoir characterization and seismic data interpretation.

Our central goal in reservoir characterization is to provide the reliable reservoir models required to predict oil production, investigate various production scenarios, or to help optimize field development. Our studies integrate seismic data with seismic logs, cores, potential fields, and geological data. Our aim is to integrate all available geoscience data into reservoir models.
