<h3>Deep, rich seismic data in shallow water.</h3>

Deep, rich seismic data in shallow water.

The Z700 system is easily deployed, requiring smaller crews and a minimum two-vessel configuration–one node management and one source vessel. No cables, no leakage, no headaches. Better yet, you get a superior image for better appraisal and brownfield development, improving your economics over the life of your reservoir.

A superior choice for complex, ecologically sensitive environments.

Shallow-water zones come with numerous challenges—hazardous obstacles, complex infrastructure, and ecologically sensitive environments. Bulky ocean-bottom cable (OBC) systems are a hassle to deploy. Technical issues and downtime associated with them drive up acquisition costs.

The Z700 system from FairfieldNodal dramatically simplifies acquisition, while providing you with the superior, long-offset, high-fold seismic image you need to make the best decisions over the productive life of field.


  • Delivers superior, multi-component 4/C data
  • Lightweight, autonomous and HSE-friendly
  • Automated back-deck handling system requires smaller crews than OBC systems, reducing risks and downtime
  • Easily deployed and retrieved via node-handling system
  • Rated to 700-meter depths
  • Records continuously, with no troubleshooting required
  • Better than 98% reliability
  • Integrates well with other FairfieldNodal OBN systems
  • No awkward cable or defective connector
