The article clearly shows the uniqueness of each seismic survey and demonstrates the consequences of the practice of applying the principle of analogous contracts to assessing the cost of field seismic exploration. A positive effect is shown for the high-quality and timely implementation of the exploration stage, while moving away from the principle of an analogue agreement with regard to the cost of seismic exploration. Key factors are described that directly affect the speed and productivity of field observations, which is of great practical importance not only for regions with a traditionally short field season due to harsh climatic conditions, but also for regions with the ability to work throughout the year, thereby raising them efficiency to a whole new level. The nuances arising in the process of production work, both expected and unforeseen, are indicated, which should be paid close attention to when assessing the duration of the stage of field seismic exploration and the expected productivity of the projected survey. Unique software tools are considered, with the help of which the design process becomes more efficient, and the model of the upcoming survey takes into account the presented factors and nuances to the maximum, since it can take into account several variables and components at once. As a result, the implementation of measures for the accounting and assessment of the set of issues indicated in the article in practice contributes to the obtaining of the expected high quality of the recorded seismic data, remaining within the predicted time frame. At the same time, the efficiency of the results of exploration work in general increases significantly; the predictability, reliability and safety of work are significantly increased.
