What do heavy gloves, days without sunlight and reindeer have in common? They slow down seismic acquisition.
Bitter operating conditions (snow, ice, wind, and extreme cold), limited visibility, and wildlife are just a few of the challenges that threaten the success of Arctic seismic acquisition. Most of these ‘winter wonderlands’ are also protected by strict environmental and government regulations that deliver hefty penalties and fines to violators. And if that’s not enough, the (often) remote locations pose colossal logistics issues for getting crews and equipment in and out safely within a short acquisition season.
Suffice it to say, Arctic seismic acquisition is not for the faint of heart. Crews have to be diligent, meticulous and agile to complete their survey before the season is over, or run the risk of waiting a full year before returning.View Products
