CGGVeritas recently announced the launch of BroadSeis, a new integrated service for high-resolution marine seismic.
BroadSeis is an innovative solution based on the deployment of specific configurations of Sentinel solid streamers combined with a new patented imaging technology designed to offer oil companies broadband seismic data, resulting in superior subsurface images.
BroadSeis capitalises on the performance of the Sercel Sentinel solid streamer, particularly its low noise characteristics and its ability to be deployed in configurations allowing the recording of an extra octave or more of low frequencies. Sentinel streamers are designed to record data while being towed at greater depths and are quieter than other streamers. When these Sentinel advantages are combined with innovative specific geometry configurations and imaging technology, BroadSeis delivers a quality signal recorded over a wide frequency bandwidth.
Robert Brunck, Chairman and CEO, CGGVeritas, said: "BroadSeis represents real progress when it comes to high-resolution imaging of reservoirs. BroadSeis mobilizes the full range of CGGVeritas technology to deliver more precise marine data with richer frequency content. This fully 3D solution is ideal for wide-azimuth acquisition as well as reservoir imaging and characterization in general. It is also immediately available on all CGGVeritas solid streamer vessels, which make up most of our fleet. BroadSeis creates remarkable images of the subsurface and represents a new technological advance in seismic imaging."
