About First Seismic Corp.
First Seismic Corporation (the Company) was incorporated in Delaware in 1990. The Company through its subsidiaries provides various geo-scientific and complementary services that are used to develop opportunities in the oil and gas business worldwide. The Company owns and brokers seismic data and a wide range of geo-scientific information primarily used by its customers in upstream oil and gas exploration and production efforts. The Company markets these intangible assets by issuing use licenses for its own seismic data and geologic information as well as information owned by third parties under brokerage and agency arrangements with oil and gas companies and governments.
The Companys reporting entity consists of FIRST SEISMIC Corporation and its two-wholly owned subsidiaries: FIRST EXCHANGE Corporation, a Delaware corporation, and FORTESA International, Inc., a Texas corporation. FIRST EXCHANGE Corporation has two wholly-owned subsidiaries, FIRST EXCHANGE Limited, a United Kingdom company, and eSmartImage Corporation, a Delaware corporation, formerly known as BLACKWELL SUPPLY, Inc. FORTESA International, Inc. has a wholly-owned subsidiary FORTESA International-Senegal, L.D.C., a Cayman Islands corporation which has a branch qualified for operations in Senegal, West Africa.
Beginning in 2000, the company has developed through its subsidiary eSmartImage Corporation, a process which will allow the company to alternatively deliver more of its products to the companys customers directly through the Internet, in addition to paper copies delivered through salesmen and express mail services. This new process allows the company to convert into digital files the geo-scientific images used by developers of oil and gas prospects, such as seismic data, maps, wells and geologic reports. The Companys conversion process produces fully searchable files that can be transmitted via e-mail or posted to its in-house FTP site on the world-wide-web for electronic delivery over the Internet. Currently, the company is providing this process to one primary major oil company customer for service fees.
In addition to its geo-scientific information business, the company is promoting and pursuing select opportunities in the oil and gas exploration and production business through existing relationships with its suppliers, customers and co-venturers.
Seismic Operations: The Company has engaged in the development of a proprietary seismic data library. Its seismic data library consists exclusively of two-dimensional or 2D data, and was developed over a period of approximately ten years from 1981 to 1991. As of 1991 the companys seismic data library consisted of over 11,000 miles of domestic 2D seismic line data. As of December 31, 1999, the companys seismic data library consisted of approximately 8,500 miles of domestic, plus revenue interests in over 15,000 kilometers of West African and other international 2D seismic line data. The Companys library is marketed to major and independent oil and gas companies under use-license arrangements. Additionally, the company has been involved in the sale of licenses for seismic data owned by others, under brokerage and agency agreements. Seismic surveys and the analysis of seismic data for the identification and definition of underground geological features and structures are principal techniques used in oil and gas exploration and development to determine possible locations of subsurface hydrocarbons. The 2D data in the companys library is now primarily usable for geologic reconnaissance of an area to determine its potential, but not for setting well drilling locations.
Geo-Technical Publishing and Services: The Company has developed and added seismic projects and geo-technical publications to its data library that the company uses for multi-client sales.
Oil And Gas Exploration and Production Operations: Through its subsidiary FORTESA International, Inc. the company is currently pursuing several oil and gas projects in the U.S. as well as its primary project in the THIES Permit in the Republic of Senegal.
The Company markets its geo-scientific products and services to major and independent oil and gas companies. The Companys customers include VANCO Energy Company, Phillips Petroleum Company, Anadarko Petroleum Corporation, BP Exploration Operating Company Limited, Phillips Petroleum Company and Fina Neftegaz.

SWOT, which stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats, is an analytical framework that identifies the internal and external factors that are favorable and unfavorable for a company.
Enhanced SWOT Analysis
Enhanced SWOT is a 3×3 grid that arranges strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats into one scheme:
- How to use the strengths to take advantage of the opportunities?
- How to use the strengths to reduce likelihood and impact of the threats?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that obstruct taking advantage of the opportunities?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that can make the threats a reality?
Upon answering these questions a company can develop a project plan to improve its business performance.
PESTEL (also termed as PESTLE) is an ideal tool to strategically analyze what influence different outside factors – political, economic, sociocultural, technological, environmental and legal – exert on a business to later chart its long term targets.
Being part of the external analysis when carrying out a strategic assessment or performing a market study, PESTEL gives an overview of diverse macro-environmental factors that any company should thoughtfully consider. By perceiving these outside environments, businesses can maximally benefit from the opportunities while minimizing the threats to the organization.
Key Factors Examined by PESTEL Analysis:
- Political – What opportunities and pressures are brought by political bodies and what is the degree of public regulations’ impact on the business?
- Economic – What economic policies, trends and structures are expected to affect the organization, what is this influence’s degree?
- Sociological – What cultural and societal aspects will work upon the demand for the business’s products and operations?
- Technological – What impact do the technological aspects, innovations, incentives and barriers have on the organization?
- Environmental – What environmental and ecological facets, both locally and farther afield, are likely to predetermine the business?
- Legal – What laws and legislation will exert influence on the style the business is carried out?
IFE, EFE, IE Matrices
The Internal Factor Evaluation matrix (IFE matrix) is a strategic management tool helping audit or evaluate major weaknesses and strengths in a business’s functional areas. In addition, IFE matrix serves as a basis for identifying and assessing relationships amongst those areas. The IFE matrix is utilised in strategy formulation.
The External Factor Evaluation matrix (EFE matrix) is a tool of strategic management that is typically utilised to assess current market conditions. It is an ideal instrument for visualising and prioritising the threats and opportunities a firm is facing.
The essential difference between the above mentioned matrices lies in the type of factors incorporated in the model; whilst the latter is engaged in internal factors, the former deals exceptionally with external factors – those exposed to social, political, economic, legal, etc. external forces.
Being a continuation of the EFE matrix and IFE matrix models, the Internal External matrix (IE matrix) rests upon an investigation of external and internal business factors integrated into one suggestive model.
Porter Five Forces Analysis
The Porter’s five forces analysis studies the industry of operation and helps the company find new sources of competitive advantage. The analysis surveys an industry through five major questions:
- What composes a threat of substitute products and services?
- Is there a threat of new competitors entering the market?
- What is the intensity of competitive rivalry?
- How big is the bargaining power of buyers?
- How significant is the bargaining power of suppliers?
VRIO stands for Value, Rarity, Imitability, Organization. This analysis helps to evaluate all company’s resources and capabilities and bring them together into one aggregate table that includes:
- Tangible resources
- Intangible resources
- Innovation and Creativity
- Organizational capabilities
The result of the analysis gives a clear picture of company’s competitive and economic implications, answering the questions if the resources mentioned above are:
- Costly to imitate?
- Organized properly?
