The Ramform Titan working offshore Myanmar, in the Bay of Bengal, is towing ‘the industry’s first ever’ single vessel 18-streamer seismic operation.
According to Petroleum Geo-Services (PGS), over a mile across, this is the first time the company has deployed 18 streamers, and also achieved the widest deployment on record.
“The Ramform Titan seismic spread is 18 streamers, each 7.05 kilometers long, with 100 meter separation between the streamers. This makes a total spread width of 1.7 kilometers and represents close to 127 kilometers of streamers. If tied together end to end, this would reach from New York City to Philadelphia. The total surface area of the streamer spread is 15.6 square kilometers,” the Norwegian seismic player said in a press release.
Reportedly, the project is setting new performance records, with the highest ever daily production for a single seismic vessel so far achieved with more than 160 square kilometers.
