Dolphin has just mobilised what it claims to be the ‘world’s largest floating object’ by deploying a seismic spread of 12 streamers, 7,050 meters in length with 150 meters streamer separation, off the coast of Myanmar for Ophir Energy Plc.
This configuration of equipment has a moving width of 1.850 meters and the seismic spread covers a total area of about 12 square km.
Bjarne Stavenes, Dolphin VP Technical, commented:“Ophir Energy PLC challenged the industry to provide a cost efficient solution to acquire their large 10,000 square km survey in Myanmar. Dolphin responded by offering this ultra-wide towing solution. After a swift mobilisation, Dolphin’s Sanco Sword is now in steady production with acquisition of about 150 square km in a single day. This is believed to be a world record for our industry and we expect Sword to become the benchmark vessel when it comes to productivity going forward.”
Dolphin is also delivering a complete Fast Track on-board processing system powered by its proprietary OpenCPS software, and Dolphin’s Singapore processing office will deliver complete high quality Pre-Stack Time Migrated (PSTM) SHarp Broadband dataset.
