HOUSTON –ION Geophysical Corp. and Fugro Geoteam have combined to roll out three technological advancements from ION's Intelligent Acquisition product line onto Fugro's seismic vessel fleet.

Fugro used ION's first DigiSTREAMER solid streamer acquisition system on a 12D vessel for a North Sea project. Fugro also used DigiFIN spread control on a 10-streamer configuration in a difficult ocean current and since has ordered another system for theGeo Celtic. Third, Fugro upgraded a vessel to include ION's Orca marine streamer command and control software.

"We are pleased to have achieved a number of recent milestones with Fugro related to our intelligent approach to marine acquisition," says Dave Moffatt, senior vice president, Marine Imaging Systems, ION.
