LEIDSCHENDAM, Netherlands — Fugro has successfully completed a series of trials and testing configurations for its new SeisWind 3D ultra-ultrahigh-resolution (UUHR) seismic system off the coast of the Netherlands.
SeisWind 3D is designed to offer an efficient data acquisition footprint with the highest resolution to enable detailed ground modeling and interpretation of near surface geology for the safe development of offshore projects. With the ability to acquire precise data in shorter periods, SeisWind 3D improves project development schedules, lowers HSSE risk for offshore crew by reducing operational exposure hours and mitigates potential project risks.
SeisWind 3D is an upgrade of Fugro’s UUHR seismic service that consists of eight solid custom specification digital streamers, with sources and decimeter accuracy in-sea positioning systems. Data are processed by in-house experts, utilizing the latest Fugro developments in UUHR seismic imaging, for the creation of detailed ground models for offshore asset installation planning.
Blair McGunnigle, Fugro’s seismic data acquisition product owner said, “Understanding near surface geology and derisking shallow hazards is critical as we continue to support the safe development of complex offshore projects.”
