Polarcus Breaking Records Off Myanmar

Seismic player Polarcus informed it is setting new acquisition performance records in its 3D marine seismic project offshore Myanmar.

Namely, the company’s seismic vessel, Polarcus Amani, is towing an in-sea configuration that measures 1.8 kilometers wide across the front ends.

With each of the ten streamers separated by 200m, the total area covered by the spread is 17.6 square kilometers. “This is the largest in-sea configuration ever towed by a single seismic vessel as well as the largest man-made moving object on earth,” the company said in a press release.

Reportedly, the acquisition plan in Myanmar will deliver up to 190 square kilometers per day, a production rate that is, according to Polarcus, currently unrivalled in the seismic industry.

Polarcus COO, Duncan Eley, said: “Such industry leading operational efficiency in Myanmar by one of our right-sized 3D seismic vessels exemplifies Polarcus’ strategy to deliver fit-for-purpose geophysical solutions to our clients. We work closely with all clients to ensure both their efficiency and data quality objectives are met and exceeded.”
