FairfieldNodal awarded pair of North Sea surveys
Beginning in early April 2017, FairfieldNodal will begin back-to-back surveys in the North Sea, employing its Z700 seismic data acquisition system.
The company says the system is designed for ecologically sensitive environments and shallow waters crowded with infrastructure.
The initial 4D survey will cover around 325 sq km (125 sq mi) on the Norwegian continental shelf. The second survey, about 59 sq km (23 sq mi) on the UK continental shelf, is a repeat of a previous acquisition.
Chuck Davison, president and CEO ofFairfieldNodal, said: “Traditionally, the Z700 is the system of choice where 4D seismic is critical to managing complex reservoirs. It’s allowed companies to improve the economics over the life of their reservoirs.”
