2019 Seismic Testing

2019 Seismic Testing MapCrestone Peak Resources is partnering with Seismic Acquisition Services, LLC. (SAS) to conduct a 3D seismic survey to safely and efficiently develop oil and natural gas in the area.

Seismic data allows scientists to identify the rock formations that have the characteristics required to hold oil and gas. By using this technology, scientists are able to reduce the industry footprint and maximize production from individual wells.

Update (May 3, 2019)


Seismic Acquisition Services (SAS) has placed all of their 'passive recording receivers' as of today, May 3, in preparation of collecting data via vibration trucks.

SAS reported they mailed notification postcards two days ago to landowners within the project, and door hangers are currently being distributed to homes within 300 feet of the operations. SAS reports they will provide the Town a preliminary schedule indicating where, and when vibration trucks will be operating. This schedule will be posted to this Town of Erie's Seismic Testing webpage.

SAS personnel will accompany the trucks during operations, should residents have questions. Weather permitting, operations are expected to begin in residential areas beginning Monday, May 6 through Friday, May 10, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
