Sercel’s QuietSea Achieves Success in US and Morocco

Sercel’s QuietSea passive acoustic monitoring (PAM) system, which is integrated into seismic streamers to detect the presence of marine mammals during seismic operations, has achieved two milestones.

Most recently, the US Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE) authorized the use of QuietSea for seismic survey operations in the US waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

Another milestone was achieved when QuietSea was deployed commercially for the first time, on a proprietary 3D seismic survey CGG conducted offshore Morocco late last year.

Sercel’s QuietSea marine mammal monitoring system was designed to provide clear and accurate mammal detection and localization information to PAM operators.

Pascal Rouiller, Sercel CEO, said: “These two important milestones confirm the industry’s recognition of QuietSea as an effective marine mammal monitoring system for environmentally responsible marine seismic acquisition. Its accuracy and reliability, combined with its ease of deployment and user-friendliness, make it the ideal mitigation tool for optimizing marine mammal detection while eliminating any potential related safety risks.”
