The crew is operating with an 80 000-channel 508XT land acquisition system, complete with QuietSeis® digital sensors, and 10 Nomad 90 Neo broadband vibrators in challenging desert terrain.
Integrated into the digital version of the 508XT, QuietSeis, a third-generation MEMS sensor, ensures optimum data accuracy and stability and can detect the weakest signals in a very large frequency bandwidth. It also simplifies infield deployment, requiring less crew intervention and reducing inherent operational safety risks.
Emmanuelle Dubu, Sercel CEO, said: "It is especially exciting to have our latest-generation digital equipment deployed on this high-channel-count onshore survey. Our 508XT acquisition system and Nomad 90 Neo vibrators are exactly the right combination for high-performance surveys, delivering unparalleled subsurface data quality for clearer seismic imaging."
