Fairfield Nodal heads off Brazil for Libra survey

Nodes for the Z3000 system

Fairfield Nodal has set off for deeper waters to acquire and process high-resolution 3D marine seismic data for the Libra consortium off Brazil.

The company said on Tuesday that the Libra project was Fairfield Nodal’s first such project offshore Brazil and that it would utilize the proprietary Z3000 ocean bottom node system.

The Libra consortium is led by Petrobras and includes Total, Royal Dutch Shell, China National Petroleum Corporation, and CNOOC.

“The Z3000 deepwater data acquisition system is ideally suited for acquisition around the dense infrastructure and challenging pre-salt imaging conditions that make this region unique. This survey will provide the high quality 3D seismic data the operator needs to make critical decisions on the development of this field,” the company added.

Offshore Energy Today reported earlier this week that Fairfield Nodal was hired by an unnamed client to carry out a marine seismic data program offshore Trinidad using the Z700 Ocean Bottom Node for a “large” acquisition.
