ISTI @ SEG 24 – 29 September 2017

ISTI, HMSC, and Geobit join together at the SEG Annual Meeting in Houston, Texas this September.  We are a team providing a complete seismic monitoring solution. Contact us through EarthImaging.com.

First and foremost, our thoughts go out to those impacted by the Houston flood.  As SEG writes:

Houston is dear to our hearts, and SEG wants to do everything it can to support the city while advancing the interests and needs of our members, attendees, sponsors, exhibitors, and presenters. . . . Officials with the George R. Brown Convention Center and the City of Houston have assured SEG that the city is ready to accommodate Annual Meeting participants. SEG staff members and volunteer leaders have inspected the Conference Center, supporting hotels, and venues, and agree that Houston is open for business!

Read more about what SEG is doing to prepare for conference goers and support the local community.

With 65+ years of combined experience, GEObit, HMSCinc and ISTI are joining forces to become the most competitive and fastest growing joint venture group in the seismic monitoring services industry.

Providing state-of-the-art seismic instruments, network design, installation techniques, data monitoring and processing services, our group is able to deliver a cost effective total solution to the energy exploration & production industry, especially to the oil, gas and geothermal sector. Our key benefits are that we produce in-house hardware and software while installing and maintaining the microseismic monitoring network to ensure a high level of data quality and availability. In other words, we make the technology – we apply the technology – we offer the technology.

We have worldwide experience having installed and operated seismic networks all over the world, from Indonesia/Papua jungle to the Middle East desert, from Alaska glaciers to Himalayan Mountains. In the USA, we are currently running many dedicated microseismic monitoring projects with over 200 stations installed in the past 10 years.


Visit us at booth #2521, SEG2017

Houston Texas, USA  |  24 – 29 September 2017

Meet our team and learn about the latest offerings. Dimitris Mourtzouchos & Nikos Germenis (Geobit), Mike Hasting (HMSC, Inc.), and Paul Friberg & Ilya Driker (ISTI) will be available to answer your questions.

Again, SEG advises that Houston is open for business.



Geobit Instruments Ltd.

Data Loggers and Sensors, Visit the website


GEObit provides high sensitivity wide-band and near broadband seismic sensors, surface or borehole type, and high dynamic range, low power 32bit ADC data loggers with local data storage and real time telemetry over seedlink protocol. We are focusing on low power and cost effective solutions so we provide to our customer seismic networks with low installation and maintenance costs. Our instruments are ideal for local and regional seismicity and micro-seismicity monitoring and for seismic events such as those induced by unconventional hydrocarbon extraction. Our high fidelity data-loggers ensure that these signals are recorded with the highest resolution and timing accuracy.
