The Seismic Exploration Tax Credit Program 2D and 3D seismic data and borehole data are an excellent resource for hydrocarbon exploration. These data are distributed by the Geologic Materials Center. Currently there are over 20 seismic surveys and more than 90 wells available. Additional seismic and borehole data will become available in the future.
