FairfieldNodal’s data acquisition division has signed a contract with a major oil and gas company to conduct a rich-azimuth, ocean-bottom survey in the Gulf of Mexico.
Operations already have begun on this program, which encompasses approximately 2,000 sq km (772 sq miles), a news release said.
The 3D/4C survey will use FairfieldNodal’s Z700 nodes. The crew will begin the survey using New Venture as its source vessel and C-Pacer for node handling. Eventually, FairfieldNodal’s newest vessel, European Supporter, will join them, nearly doubling the number of nodes available, according to the release. European Supporter has been specially designed and outfitted as a hybrid vessel, giving it the flexibility to function as both a source vessel and its own node handler.
The “super crew” will deploy more than 4200 Z700 nodes on a single patch, utilizing two source vessels. Survey acquisition is expected to take approximately 12 months to complete, with plans to illuminate both shallow and deep targets.
