Wavefield Inseis was a Norway company trading between 2007 and 2009 that provided global marine geophysical services. By 2008 the company operated a total of six geophysical survey vessels, and could supply services in 2D, 3D, 4D, multi-azimuth, and wide-azimuth, with both exclusive and multi-client services.[1]

The company had its main offices in Oslo and Bergen, in addition to offices in Perth, London, and Houston.[1] It was listed on the Oslo Stock Exchange.


The firm was formed from the merger of two companies, Wavefield Geophysical, and InSeis.[2][3]

In December 2006, the company acquired 30% of Optoplan, an optical sensor provider. In October 2008, the company acquired the remaining shares.[4]

Wavefield was acquired by French seismic company CGGVeritas in December 2008 and is now fully owned by them.[5] The Wavefield name has ceased to exist except in holding companies / legal entity status.
