Centers of Excellence

Geophysical Studies & Testing

Since its establishment in 2009, ACES Regional Centre of Excellence (RCE) for Geophysical Studies has been growing in size and scope of technical services. At present, our services cover an extensive range of geophysical investigation methods including but not limited to surface geophysics, borehole geophysics, borehole logging and marine geophysical investigation techniques.

ACES Geophysical RCE owns and operates state of the art geophysical equipment obtained from worldwide reputable suppliers.  Further, ACES has strong background on geotechnical drilling and engineering geology provides great support and completeness to the interpretation and verification of the geophysical findings.

ACES geophysical RCE services has successfully completed projects across the middle east countries including Jordan, KSA, Qatar, Oman, Bahrain, Kuwait, Turkey and the UAE.  With our qualified and experience engineers and technicians, ACES Geophysical RCE has become one of the most reliable suppliers for geophysical services in the region.
