CALGARY, June 4 /CNW/ - Pulse Seismic Inc. ("Pulse" or the "Company")
announces that with the signing of a significant data library licensing
contract yesterday, second quarter data library sales have reached $7.9
million, bringing 2009 year to date seismic data library sales to $10.0
million. Total seismic revenue for the year to date (which includes $4.9
million of participation survey revenue) has now reached $14.9 million.
"Our second quarter sales have been primarily of seismic data located in
Pulse's current core area of focus in the west-central area of Alberta and
cover both conventional and non-conventional resource plays. We are very
pleased with the efforts of our marketing team in dealing with these
challenging market conditions. The quality of Pulse's extensive seismic data
library continues to demonstrate its value during a time when very low levels
of seismic data sales are being achieved in the industry," stated Doug Cutts,
President & CEO.
The financial information contained in this news release is based on
management's estimates and has not yet been approved by the Company's Audit
Committee or Board of Directors.
Pulse is a market leader in the acquisition, marketing and licensing of
2D and 3D seismic data for the western Canadian energy sector. Pulse owns the
second-largest licensable seismic data library in Canada, currently consisting
of approximately 257,300 net kilometres of 2D seismic and 12,800 net square
kilometres of 3D seismic. The library extensively covers the Western Canada
Sedimentary Basin where most of Canada's oil and natural gas exploration and
development occurs. The replacement value of Pulse's library is currently
estimated at over $1 billion based on current field replacement costs.
