Breitling is drilling the BREITLING-STAR #1 using its proprietary technology, Breitling Geo3D. Geo3D represents an advance in filtering techniques for seismic data that can detect small vertical movements along fracture planes. This technology allows Breitling to see where hydrothermal solutions have leached and dolomitized and created enhanced porosity and permeability. Further, the technology allows Breitling to detect what overlooked .chimney. features that are apparent on 3D seismic but un-detected by normal interpretation.
