Control Network

The Contractor shall measure the Network Control with GPS static differential method, the new GPS points should be evenly distributed in the area, with an error for the vector component such that the closure is equal to or less than 1.0 PPM. For primary network, the maximum closure vector length is 20 Km.

 

In each session, three or more receivers are used that must track a minimum of five (5) satellites simultaneously with a PDOP not less than five (5). The length of the base line and periods for determining and should be maximum of 20 km in length and a minimum observation period of tracing one hundred twenty (120) minutes respectively.

 

Azimuth signal

 

With each GPS point, they should put an azimuth signal. The azimuth point is placed at a distance not less than 250 meters; in areas covered by vegetation, the farthest distance possible without creating new cutting lines.

 

Lashing Points

 

It is required moorings with GPS or survey station to other points close to seismic lines, such as moorings to: GPS points (BMs) of other projects, oil wells producer or abandoned, which are at a distance of five hundred (500) feet of the perimeter of the project.

 

The old seismic lines to intersect must be moored in the same way.

 

4. Permanent markers Monuments of GPS -BMs Points

 

All control points (BMs) established for the study will be materialized with permanent monuments/ markers.

 

To realize the GPS Control Points, a Monument of concrete will be built with dimensions of 0.3 x 0.3 meters and 0.8 meters height of which only 10 centimeters will be above the surface. The Monument will take on top or cap a brass, aluminum or non-corrosive metal plate which should be focused on the visible or surface face of the monument.

Revision of Instruments

 

Total stations must be calibrated in specialized workshops and calibration certificates valid for not more than six (6) months and less than three (3) months effective at the beginning of Project.

 

For calibrating instrument a calibration base will be measured, next to Base Camp. The instruments must be checked and adjusted: in distance and collimation error both horizontally and vertically at least once a month. This calibration will be required prior to commencement of operations. The calibration base should be measured using GPS differential static method equipment and will be part of a triangulation that allows double determination not only its vector definition.

 

Each month, the Contractor shall send the Client a list of instruments, indicating the check date and control type.

 

6. Acceptable tolerances and other technical specifications shall comply with THE COMPANY’s standards. In particular, recipients and shooting point will be staked with ± 0.5 meters for 90% of points and ± 1 meter for 100% of the points on the horizontal positions of the Pre-plot. Once a receiver or shooting point has been staked, the precision required for their position is ± 0.5 meters horizontally and ± 0.5 m vertically beyond the control network.

 

Closings

 

Horizontal Closure Error

The following horizontal closure error ratio will be used as a maximum

(L = length of the "loop" polygonal)

 

· Less than 10 Km. length 0.27 m * w L
· Between 10 and 20 Km. 0.23 m * w L
· More than 20 Km. 0.20 m * w L
· Vertical Closure Error
· Maximum 0.15 m * w L

 

Reception sites and shooting point will be staked relative to the horizontal positions of the Pre-plot with a tolerance of ± 1.0 meter, taking into consideration the environmental and safety aspects.

 

For RTK measuring this tolerance is ± 0.5 meters because this system provides greater quality.

 

Once a receiver or shooting point has been staked, the precision required for their position is ± 0.3 meters horizontally and ± 0.3 m vertically beyond the control network.

 

7. The CONTRACTOR shall establish a system of primary control points to establish a number of reference marks strategically placed evenly within the project, which will ensure the integrity of the information of RTDGPS gang. Observations of GPS in static method of carrier phase will be conducted to establish control points needed to use for the location of the seismic lines. No source or receiving station will be more than five (5) km from the nearest GPS control point.

 

8. For positioning of sources and receivers, GPS-RTK gangs and/or conventional will be used. The CONTRACTOR shall obtain licenses for DGPS radio frequencies. For areas in which the use of GPS-RTK is not feasible, conventional Surveying gangs were used.

 

Note: In case it has to use both real time and/or conventional systems, it is necessary before performing it to make a test line with a length of 5 km and the maximum permissible error of the result cannot be more than 0.1m (difference in coordinates and raisings, so that the affinity of the systems is reliable).

 

 
 

 

GPS - RTK

 

The maximum operating range is 5 Km., and measurements will be carried out in fine mode.

The reception window is 15 ° above the horizon and PDOP less than five (5) with at least five (5) synchronized satellites.

 

The contractor shall verify the start and end each workday the setup and calibration of GPS-RTK equipment in a primary control network point predetermined, called daily check points. The check points should be recorded in the same daily archive of production.

 

Conventional surveying

 

First Order Polygons: a sufficient number of first order polygons shall be made (measured) between GPS control points to ensure that the seismic program and survey closures are within tolerance established by the contract. These polygons will be based on the basic GPS network. First order polygons should be adjusted.

 

Azimuth Control: should be measured at intervals not exceeding three (3) kilometer with solar observations. The MPE is twelve seconds per change. The filters used for solar observations must be original equipment.

 

Any closure error out of tolerances of the contract requires new measurements of solar observations.

 

Conventional survey data should be stored in electronic storage of data (data collectors), or Total Station with internal memory.

 

Due to the nature of the work it is recommended that the survey data are transferred daily from the flying camp to base camp by a radio system "MODEM", internet or similar means.
