Mexico onshore oil and gas blocks

High Accuracy Surveying and Satellite Photos for Mexico Round 1 Onshore Blocks

As you probably already know, Mexico’s oil and gas blocks are up for auction and the next round includes the onshore fields. For bidding companies, detailed satellite elevation mapping and high resolution ortho photos can significantly help understand and assess the surface topography.

PhotoSat can provide 30cm vertical accuracy, 1m bare earth elevation grids (DEM) for all blocks. These DEMs are produced from archive satellite images.

The benefits of having high accuracy surveying include:

  • Assessing environmental conditions including drainage and flood risk assessment.
  • Engineering grade accuracy allows for accurate assessments of the location of existing infrastructure (well sites, roads, pipelines etc).
  • Knowledge of the ground conditions reduces risk.

If the available satellite images used to produce the topographic data are too old for your purposes, we can acquire new satellite images on request. Contact us at info@photosat.ca for information on the data available over the block in question, and for pricing.

We can accommodate custom coordinate systems and are able to use many types of surveys for ground reference points. We can also produce the mapping without ground control points if nothing is available. More information on our 30cm accuracy satellite elevation mapping can be found on our main website.

If detailed base mapping is not required yet, we can also provide high resolution satellite ortho photos only over the desired block.

The following table outlines the existing 50cm resolution satellite images that are immediately available for all blocks. Included are the size of the block and the most recent ortho photo date. If you need more current information, we can task a satellite to collect new images.
