STRYDE has announced an agreement with Africa Geophysical Services LLC, a land seismic data acquisition and processing company in Oman, to supply 154 000 of its nodes for projects in Oman and Africa.

The deal is the largest for STRYDE in the Middle East.

Africa Geophysical Services, which has a presence in Oman, India, Tanzania, Egypt, Dubai, Uganda, Turkey and the UK, will use STRYDE’s nodes, expertise and training services to obtain data for oil and gas exploration projects in Oman and Africa.

Its project in Oman, which is due to commence later this year, will see the highest ever number of nodes used for seismic acquisition in the Middle East in any one project. Around 130 000 nodes will be deployed via STRYDE’s Compact system.

Mike Popham, CEO, STRYDE said: “This is a really exciting agreement for STRYDE as we continue along the path of rapid growth and enter new territories – and we’re delighted to be working in collaboration with AGS to help deliver high inventory, cost effective and super high-definition seismic acquisition for its clients in the Middle East and Africa.

“The oil and gas industry is starting to recognise that high-density seismic imaging is the only option to fully unlock the true value of a reservoir. Our highly reliable nodes, which can be quickly deployed in their tens of thousands, with minimal impact on the environment, offers exactly this; a much better picture for far better returns on reservoirs.”

Salim Ajib Alhajri, Chairman, Africa Geophysical Services, said: “This agreement represents a significant moment for both AGS and our customers. Working with the latest acquisition technology we realise our crews can be more efficient, safer and deliver better quality data to our customers, allowing them to radically improve their geological understanding.

“And beyond these initial projects for which we intend to use STRYDE’s nodes, we will offer the same high end acquisition capabilities to our clients who need to obtain high-definition seismic imaging in even more challenging terrains, such as urban areas, forests or in mountain ranges utilizing predominantly local Omani content. We are really looking forward to getting started and delivering the very best results for our clients in Oman, Africa and around the world.”
