  • AVO and reservoir characterization through our strategic alliances

Accuracy, quality, and reliability are fundamental aspects of our services. We meet our client requirements with technical innovation, experience and integrity, delivering seismic data to help them gain a competitive edge.

Sterling services denverhoustonOur E&P customers seek a competitive edge, a technology advantage, in the evolving unconventional plays. These rapidly developing resource plays require new thinking (research & development) and innovative solutions (thin-bed imaging) to optimize production. Plays such as the Bakken – Three Forks in the Williston Basin – are textbook examples of how differential technologies and client collaboration can enhance drilling success.
Geo-steering long lateral well paths in thin reservoir intervals demands improved technologies for seismic imaging and reservoir prediction. Sterling’s suite of reservoir driven solutions provides the highest resolution images in both time and depth to exploit unconventional reservoirs.


Our clients know that when their project demands fast turnaround, we dedicate the resources to get the job done without sacrificing quality. From small 2D datasets to very large 3D projects, our mission is to satisfy our customers with quality, speed and responsive personalized service on every processing project.

Focus on Innovation

Innovation is fundamental to our commitment to provide the right data solution to serve our clients’ exploration and reservoir goals. Sterling’s expanding portfolio of proprietary processing capabilities and strategic technology partners addresses the specialized needs of resource plays and the complexity of conventional targets.
