Safer marine data acquisition, even in the tight spots
FairfieldNodal has decades of experience acquiring marine seismic data, beginning with work in the shallow Gulf of Mexico, the basis of our premier multi-client database. Thanks to exclusive ZNodal technology, including our true cable-free marine systems, no one answers the call for safe, efficient, high-quality seismic acquisition in today’s difficult arenas like FairfieldNodal.
NODAL ADVANTAGES-Z700 & Z3000
FairfieldNodal takes you where OBC and streamers can’t.
Streamer acquisition makes perfect sense for many projects, but there are times when its logistical limitations in congested and/or obstructed waters hinder your decision-making ability. Our cable-free technology lets you capture high-quality data with full-azimuth illumination, almost anywhere.
The advantages of FairfieldNodal 2D, 3D, 4D, and 4C acquisition:-
- Longer offsets
- Full and all-azimuth data
- Unlimited record lengths
- Continuous recording — reproduce time slices of any record length
- Survey design flexibility — minimal gaps in coverage area
- Streamlined passive-rope node-recovery system — eliminates leakage issues
- Superior coupling and vector fidelity
- Onboard QA/QC and data formatting
