Ocean bottom node seismic company SAExploration has said it has completed the largest shallow water ocean-bottom marine project in the company’s history.
“Contracted to SAExploration by a major national oil company, the project, located in the Arabian Sea off the coast of India, utilized over 20 vessels, which included three ocean-bottom node deployment vessels and two seismic source vessels operating in dual source/simultaneous source mode,” SAExploration said on Wednesday.
According to SAExploration, a total of 5,400 ocean-bottom nodes and in excess of 1,300 kilometers of rope were deployed on the project to acquire approximately 1,200 square kilometers of full fold seismic data.
Jeff Hastings, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented: “I am very proud of SAE’s project management and operational teams who performed extremely well on a very large and very complex project.
“Some of the challenges they faced included subsurface and surface infrastructure, such as 46 separate platforms, in addition to fisheries management and field-level SIMOPS.
