GWL Acquires Barents Sea Seismic Data with Its New Technology

Mobile container for transportation, storage and servicing of GWL Seismobuoys - one of the components of the FloatSeis technology

Geology Without Limits (GWL) explored the Barents Sea’s Norwegian shelf segment employing its new FloatSeis marine seismic technology. 

GWL markets FloatSeis as marine seismic technology that amends CDP reflection method with refracted waves data. Using custom seismic equipment in addition to both 2D/3D seismic survey, FloatSeis allows to record ultra-long offset refraction data together with streamer data, GWL explains.

Data processing technique TrueVelocitySolution (TVS), which is a part of FloatSeis technology, adjoins this information to develop final seismic image.

As the collected data requires further processing, GWL said it plans to obtain its first results in December 2016.

It was the first shallow-water basin application of the FloatSeis. The survey was conducted with help of SeaBird Exploration’s research vessel Harrier Explorer.
