About

The IGEO company is a Russian manufacturer of a new generation of geophones to search oil & gas.

 

The IGEO geophones are based on a molecular-electronic technology. The data provided by the IGEO geophones in combination with other geophysical data can help characterize storage reservoir properties through the improved seismic imagery.

The competitive advantages of the IGEO geophones are as follows:

- improved seismic imagery of the layer geology is provided through a higher sensitivity and an extended bandwidth

- savings in operating costs owing to replacing a group of 12 standard sensors for 1 IGEO geophone

- integration into existing systems of seismic exploration is available

 

IGEO is a resident of the Skolkovo Innovation Center and is implementing this project in cooperation with the Seed Fund of the Russian Venture Company and R-sensors group of companies.

 

Our Mission

With a scientific and research area of molecular electronics developing, IGEO and its technology partners R-sensors and Seismotronika have a common objective to go to the mass market of motion sensors and first of all seismic exploration with applying this cutting-edge technology.
