Optimizing Productivity for High-Density Acquisitions
AHV-IV Renegade Delivers 80,000 Pounds of Efficiency
In December 2007, Global Geophysical Services, a geophysical service provider operating twelve land survey crews worldwide, began a five-month, 3D data acquisition in Oman. The acquisition specified an advanced vibroseis recording methodology covering approximately 2,793 sq km of relatively flat desert terrain for characterization of a target approximately 6,000 meters below the surface. With aggressive daily productivity parameters and simultaneously recorded offset separated shot points required by the E&P operator, Global sought a highly reliable vibroseis vehicle with faster acceleration that would provide greater energy input while minimizing the logistical quandary of mobilizing and coordinating multiple vibs per fleet.
