Magseis chooses Sonardyne's SST acoustic positioning technology to support its ocean bottom seismic survey
Norwegian seabed seismic services company, Magseis, has selected acoustic positioning equipment from Sonardyne International Ltd, UK, to support its upcoming deep water ocean bottom seismic survey of the Red Sea.
Beginning this month (July) and working in partnership with BGP on behalf of Saudi Aramco, the S78 project is expected to last nine months and will involve the deployment of a large network of ocean bottom recording nodes, each of which will be accurately positioned using Sonardyne’s Ranger 2 USBL (Ultra-Short BaseLine) and Small Seismic Transponder (SST) technologies.
Seismic surveillance surveys conducted using stationary receivers deployed on the seabed are becoming increasingly commonplace as geophysicists generally agree that this method delivers the highest possible definition imagery.
