Greymouth formed NZ Geophysical in 2010.An Aries II acquisition system with 2400 channel capability was purchased along with shot hole drilling and surveying equipment.  Marine cases and cables were also acquired that allow recording of transition zone data.
Following 2D, 2D TZ andonshore 3D surveys in Taranaki the spread was mobilised to Chile in 2012. Over the following 3 seasons, 840 sq km 3D and 455km 2D onshore seismic as well as 225 sq km 3D and 225 km 2D transition zone seismic was acquired onshore and throughthe Straits of Magellan.
