Oil slick information is valuable to oil exploration companies for the detection and monitoring of natural seepage and oil pollution on the ocean’s surface.
With over 20 years’ experience carrying out offshore projects for the oil and gas industries, Airbus Defence and Space has interpreted over 20,000 satellite scenes for the purpose of mapping natural oil slicks for the Global Seeps database.
Definitive risk ranking tool for the exploration industry. Global Seeps Coverage total area covered exceeds 60 million sq km.
Global Seeps is a non-exclusive database of offshore oil slicks, constructed by systematically screening the world’s offshore basins, using a wide range of archive and newly programmed satellite data.
The database contains over 25,000 potential seepage slicks identified, including slick source points, slick vectors, probable slick type and confidence levels.All data is immediately available on a local, regional or global licence and new acquisition can be programmed according to user request.
