Deep Seismic Reflection Survey in Hancock County

Staff of WesternGeco Corporation conduct a deep seismic reflection survey in the vicinity of the planned carbon dioxide test injection well in Hancock County. The survey, when completed, will provide KGS geologists additional information about the deep subsurface geology of the region.  A short video shows three large seismic vibrator trucks in action along Highway 1265 in Hancock County on December 18.  Click on the photo or here to view the video.
