It’s not easy acquiring quality seismic data in shallow-water zones. Out to depths of 700 meters, you often have to contend with the risks associated with oilfield infrastructure, shipping lanes, commercial fishing, and ecologically sensitive environments. Conventional ocean-bottom cable (OBC) systems are bulky, constrained by fixed-receiver station intervals, and prone to technical downtime with large receiver spreads.
Moreover, your image may be compromised by gaps in coverage and acquisition parameters that are designed to fit your acquisition system instead of your imaging objectives. Today's technology-driven E&P strategies require quality seismic data. Ultimately, an inferior image is rarely worth the hassle or the cost to obtain it. A poorly positioned appraisal well, a missed opportunity, or a second survey all subtract from your bottom line.
Fewer headaches and better economics.
The real value of any survey must be measured in context with how it affects your true bottom line, which must include safety and environmental risk exposure. FairfieldNodal can help you meet all criteria, providing a superior image, the highest reliability, minimal risk and the lowest total cost of ownership.
