About Our Data

Pulse’s data library covers western Canada’s most active and unconventional crude oil and liquids-rich natural gas plays. Since becoming a public company in 1999, we have created the largest proprietary seismic data library in western Canada, using two methods of acquisition:


We have acquired high-quality 2D and 3D seismic data sets through purchases from competitors and oil and gas companies looking to monetize their proprietary seismic data. We focus on data sets that are large, have multi-zone potential and meet the economic criteria to confirm an acceptable valuation.

3D Participation Surveys

Historically, we have partnered with producers that are interested in defraying the costs of gathering new data. We retained 100% ownership of the new seismic data and added it to our library, leading to increased revenue-generating capacity.

About Our Business Model

Our business occupies a unique part of the oil and natural gas exploration and development cycle, providing a key tool in the discovery and development of new oil and natural gas reserves – but with a lower risk profile and different business dynamic than producers.

Our model is based on the enduring value of seismic data, which can be repeatedly re-licensed to oil and natural gas companies – and now, to a growing client base in the exploration for non-traditional forms of energy and related resources.
