Seabed Geosolutions has announced the availability of its four-component (4-C) Manta ocean bottom node crew in early Q2 2017.
Manta was developed in co-operation with Fugro and combines technologies to provide a cost-effective alternative to high-end streamer data acquisition.
The system leverages proprietary node technology, fully automated handling systems and deployment methods, resulting in operations in all survey configurations up to 3,000 meters, the company explained.
Stephan Midenet, Seabed Geosolutions’ CEO, said, “We are excited to announce the availability of the world’s most flexible and efficient ocean bottom node crew. We continue to see a strong demand for high quality seabed seismic data, provided it can be acquired in a significantly more efficient manner. Manta addresses this efficiency requirement, opening avenues for increased use of seabed technologies.”
Seabed Geosolutions is a joint venture between Fugro (60%) and CGG (40%), offering seabed geophysical solutions to the oil and gas industry.
