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
INOVA introduces HyperSource, an innovative communication method extends the reach of source operation on large scale 3D seismic surveys. HyperSource is an innovative approach to overcoming current radio technology limitations and is a new feature available in INOVA’s G3i HD cable acquisition system with iX1 acquisition software. HyperSource consists of a hybrid, wired and wireless, communication network available for access by distant source crews on a project operating where logistically convenient for efficient production. In a high productivity vibroseis example this might consist of multiple vibroseis fleets operating within or even beyond the perimeter of the active patch spanning 10’s of kilometers from the recording truck.
