International seismic technology company Stryde has been awarded a multi-million-dollar contract by leading geophysical services provider BGP for the supply of an 80,000-channel nodal acquisition system in the Middle East.
As per the deal, BGP will lease Stryde’s containerised Compact System for use on a high-density 3D acquisition project in Oman. This deal follows multiple contracts between BGP and Stryde globally.
Along with the company’s differentiated nodal technology, Stryde will supply its compact system, a containerised node management solution that allows one operator on shift to rotate around 13,000 nodes every 24 hours.
This is made possible by Stryde’s built-in node charging and data-harvesting systems, allowing the client to drive further efficiencies on this high-density 3D seismic survey, said its senior official.
"Stryde Nodes help with denoising seismic data acquired in desert environments and enable large-scale high-density seismic surveys," stated Sam Moharir, Stryde’s Head of Business Development for Mena region.
"Due to the system’s compact size and reduced cost, Stryde is the only feasible solution for high-density land seismic acquisition, capable of handling the frequency-band overlap between noise and effective signals," he noted.
An additional feature of the compact system allows for a minimal seismic camp footprint, and reduced crew sizes, and vehicles. In turn, this significantly lowers HSE risk exposure in the field, stated Moharir.
Housed in a single standard 20ft shipping container, the innovative compact system allows flexibility to expand the channel count up to 150,000 nodes without needing additional infrastructure or operators in the compact container, he added.-TradeArabia News Service
