55. The authorization holder must send to the Minister, within the period provided for in section 100 of the Petroleum Resources Act (chapter H-4.2), an end of activities report signed by a geologist, an engineer or a geophysicist including, in particular,
(1)  the number of the geophysical surveying authorization;
(2)  the name and contact information of the holder and the licence number;
(3)  the name and contact information of the geologist, engineer or geophysicist responsible for the technical program;
(4)  the type and the name of the vessel or platform used, its registration number and the name of its owner;
(5)  the type of navigation equipment used and its specifications;
(6)  the name of the enterprises that took part in the work and the nature of the work;
(7)  the name of the region in which the surveying was carried out;
(8)  the type of surveying conducted and the energy sources used;
(9)  the acquisition parameters and the objectives of the surveying including in particular structures, geological formations targeted, the type of exploration target sought and the investigation depth;
(10)  the total number of linear kilometres acquired or the area covered by the surveying;
(11)  the start and end dates of the work;
(12)  the summary of the work carried out in chronological order;
(13)  a summary of the abnormal meteorological conditions that caused the operation delay and the corrective measures taken;
(14)  a compilation of the daily progress of the work;
(15)  a bathymetric map at a sufficient scale showing
(a)  the perimeter of the licence;
(b)  the activity site, survey lines and traverses with their nature, numbering and length;
(c)  the points of energy source and their numbering; and
(16)  a description of the data acquisition parameters indicating, in particular,
(a)  the spacing between the points of the energy source, the receiver points and, if applicable, between the survey lines;
(b)  the characteristics of the energy source used; and
(c)  if applicable, the setting of the recording filters;
(17)  a description of the data processing parameters;
(18)  the adjustments made to the data during the interpretation;
(19)  the following interpretation maps:
(a)  in the case of seismic reflection surveying, the time structure map and the isochrone map of the main target and, if applicable, the secondary target and the interpreted profiles; if the stratigraphy of an adjacent wellbore is known, the holder must carry out the matching of the seismic profile nearest to the hole and indicate the correlation between the main reflectors and the stratigraphy;
(b)  in the case of seismic refraction surveying, the velocity map;
(c)  in the case of magnetic surveying, the map for the total magnetic field corrected and offset and the map for the residual magnetic field corrected and offset;
(d)  in the case of gravimetric surveying, the maps of Bouguer anomalies and of the residual field;
(20)  an analysis of each of the interpretation maps specifying the correlation between the geology and the geophysical data;
(21)  if applicable, the technical reports prepared by the enterprises that carried out the data processing or interpretation;
(22)  a comparative analysis of the work carried out compared with that planned in the technical program and the results obtained compared with those anticipated;
(23)  a description and photographs of the equipment used and its specifications;
(24)  photographs of the bottom of the water;
(25)  bathymetric maps prepared from the surveyed data; and
(26)  the recommendations for the continuation of the work.
If required and based on the area of the work, the holder may, for the purposes of subparagraph 15 of the first paragraph, submit a number of maps at different scales.
