Schlumberger launched the IsoMetrix* marine isometric seismic technology on June 5, during EAGE in Copenhagen.
This new technology outputs isometrically sampled point-receiver data in both crossline and inline directions, capturing the returning wavefield in three dimensions and providing the most accurate images of the subsurface ever recorded, claimed the company.
The IsoMetrix system uses calibrated, multisensory, micro-electro-mechanical systems technology that forms part of the new WesternGeco Nessie-6* point-receiver seismic streamer. The sensors measure acoustic pressure as well as vertical and crossline acceleration throughout the frequency range.
“Through an extensive 10-year research and engineering program, we have developed a new category of seismic that not only includes the acquisition technology, but also the algorithms and workflows needed to manage such an unprecedented amount of data,” said Carel Hooykaas, president of WesternGeco.
