Houston, TX – 10 November 2022 – Fairfield Geotechnologies (“Fairfield”), a U.S. premier provider of subsurface energy data, today announces its plans to acquire a new high trace density multi-client survey within the southern Midland Basin, a critical component of Permian Basin exploration. This acquisition will extend Fairfield’s existing footprint, specifically within a key area of the Permian Basin. The established Area of Interest will include over 160 square miles of high-resolution, 3D data in Upton County, Texas. Permitting is underway and will launch in December 2022.

Joe Dryer, President & C.E.O., Fairfield Geotechnologies, said: “We are excited to announce further development of the Midland Basin.
