Sercel equips 3D mega-crew seismic survey in North Africa

Sercel ORA and ORMESercel has announced that its high-performance equipment is currently being deployed on another 3D megacrew survey, this time by a major North African geophysical company

The crew is operating with an 80,000-channel 508XT land acquisition system, complete with QuietSeis digital sensors, and 10 Nomad 90 Neo broadband vibrators in challenging desert terrain.

Seamlessly integrated into the digital version of the 508XT, QuietSeis, the industry’s most advanced third-generation MEMS sensor, ensures optimum data accuracy and stability. With its outstanding low-noise performance, it detects the weakest signals in a very large frequency bandwidth. Additionally, it simplifies infield deployment, requiring less crew intervention and reducing inherent operational safety risks.

Combined with the superior seismic data performance of QuietSeis, super-heavy Nomad 90 Neo vibrators are the ideal choice for a high-productivity broadband survey programme, providing a wider frequency range, high energy output and excellent sweep quality.

Emmanuelle Dubu, Sercel CEO, said, “It is especially exciting to have our latest-generation digital equipment deployed on this high-channel-count onshore survey. Our 508XT acquisition system and Nomad 90 Neo vibrators are exactly the right combination for high-performance surveys, delivering unparalleled subsurface data quality for clearer seismic imaging.”
