How to achieve a higher-quality image.

It’s part technology and part expertise. Inside your raw acquisition data lies the insight you need for optimal production, along with the means to extend the productive life of your field.

At Fairfield Geotechnologies, our approach is methodical, with each stage carefully defined. We work closely with you to apply the right solutions, based on your specific project parameters and imaging goals. From noise reduction to signal enhancement to velocity model building, nothing we do is off-the-shelf.

The result is a quality image, tailored to your needs, to help lower your risk and maximize economic viability.

Our techniques for reservoir revelations.

From high-performance computing to highly optimized imaging algorithms, our processing and research teams apply the best technical solution to complex imaging and reservoir management problems.

Advantages of nodal-data - and nodal expertise.

Exploration and production companies can appreciate the advantages of nodal technology—both for access to congested and environmentally sensitive areas and for the high-quality data nodal acquisition surveys yield for exploration, appraisal and development. With high repeatability, operators seeking to extend the productive life of their reservoirs can better estimate reserves, develop recovery strategies, avoid risks and identify opportunities.

Nodal technology is part of Fairfield’s DNA. Few companies understand as we do the workflows and processing techniques necessary to effectively extract the valuable insights from the superior nodal data.

Ocean Bottom Node 3D and 4D acquisition provides:

  • Longer offsets
  • High fold and all-azimuth data
  • Continuous recording — produce time records of any record length
  • Survey design flexibility — minimal gaps in coverage area
  • High efficiency deep and shallow water deployment methods
  • Superior coupling and vector fidelity
  • Excellent repeatability
