FairfieldNodal adds to its sizable Delaware database.

Red Tank acquisition targets the heart of the Delaware Basin

FairfieldNodal continues to expand its ongoing 3D seismic program in the Delaware Basin. The Red Tank multi-client survey, which begins February 15, will be in the heart of the New Mexico portion of the Delaware Basin. This high-resolution 3D survey adds more than 300 square miles to the company’s regional contiguous database of 3,000 square miles.

Acquisition parameters are designed to target the Bone Spring through Wolfcamp formations, providing operators with crucial information they need to make the right decisions in these highly productive zones. To ensure that their customers will have the best image possible, FairfieldNodal will also be processing the data using a variety of the latest techniques for noise removal, signal conditioning, azimuthal analysis and imaging.

“There’s significant activity in the Delaware right now, as operators rush to consolidate positions in the prolific basin,” said Joe Dryer, Senior Vice President of FairfieldNodal Data Licensing. “But efficiency and profitability are always top priority for our customers. We’re committed to supporting their objectives with superior images.”

Data from the industry funded survey will be available end of 2017.
