Geospace makes equipment to capture seismic data – key for companies exploring for oil and gas. In 2012, the company booked a $15 million contract for a seabed data acquisition system for Shell and Petrobras to use in Brazil. The company also nabbed a $160 million deal with Norway’s Statoil to install two data systems in the North Sea. Geospace also saw an increase in rentals of its wireless data system last year, including in Russia. The company had record revenues of $191.7 million in 2012. Revenue has continued to climb for Geospace in 2013, despite a weak market in North America. --C.G.
