Global Seeps

The world’s no.1 non-exclusive oil slick database


A cost-effective risk ranking tool with over 32,000 potential seepage slicks

We comprehensively screen the world’s offshore basins to produce the industry’s leading, non-exclusive oil slick database. With over 32,000 potential seepage slicks identified, along with regular updates, the Global Seeps database is a cost-effective resource for risk and opportunity ranking prior to exploring new regions and also supports baseline oil pollution mapping. The unique manual interpretation includes the identification of slick source points, slick outline vectors, probable slick type and assigned confidence levels. Seep location data can be easily correlated with seismic data, providing you with a unique set of information to find new leads and make the right decision.

Key features and benefits:

  • Cost-effective risk ranking tool for new exploration
  • Worldwide dual coverage data
  • High-resolution Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data ensures all slicks are captured
  • Slick characterization identifying natural seepage and man-made pollution
  • Unique manual interpretation of all scenes to ensure all features are classified and ranked correctly
