Superior images for deep and ultra-deepwater fields.

Superior images for deep and ultra-deepwater fields.

In deeper water, challenges are more complex. Mistakes, more costly. Making the right decisions requires a superior seismic image—much more than what a towed streamer survey can provide. The Fairfield Geotechnologies Z3000 system provides that image. High-quality, high-fold 3D seismic gives you a solid 4D baseline survey, along with the power to monitor your reservoir and react to changes over time, and plan intervention activities. The safety, flexibility, and scalability of the Z3000 helps you achieve your seismic monitoring objectives at the lowest total cost of ownership of any competing system.

Nodal and 4D—the essentials for success.

Successful 4D analysis requires not just a quality baseline nodal seismic image, but the ability to repeat monitor surveys over time. Subtle changes in reservoir response can only be measured with the highest quality seismic images that repeatable, high signal/noise, full-azimuth nodes provide.
