Beginning in early April 2017, FairfieldNodal will commence back-to-back surveys in the North Sea, continuing what is expected to be a busy acquisition season. To meet the challenging conditions of the North Sea, FairfieldNodal will be employing its Z700® seismic data acquisition system. Designed specifically for ecologically sensitive environments and shallow waters crowded with infrastructure, the Z700 will provide the repeatable, high-quality data needed for exploration and development projects in the region.
The initial 4D survey will cover approx. 325 sq kms on the Norwegian Continental Shelf (NCS), giving operators a high-quality dataset, critical for planning and future field development. The second survey, approx. 59 sq kms on the UK Continental Shelf (UKCS), is a repeat of a previous acquisition.
'Traditionally, the Z700 is the system of choice where 4D seismic is critical to managing complex reservoirs,' said Chuck Davison, President and CEO, FairfieldNodal. 'It’s allowed companies to improve the economics over the life of their reservoirs.'
