About two-thirds of the world’s daily oil production comes from mature fields, according to a report from IHS Cambridge Energy Research Associates, and Halliburton suggests that around 80% of these fields are located in the Middle East and North Africa.
Brownfield optimization is the primary driver behind high-density broadband seismic acquisition. High-resolution imaging of not only the reservoir, but also the various migration pathways throughout the entire field, is needed to understand where injected fluids and gas accumulate, and the impact field flooding has on the formation and subsequent production volumes.
Fortunately, desert environments are the perfect host for high-density surveys on account of their isolation, limited vegetation and nothing but sand as far as the eye can see. (And let’s not forget the heat.) It’s also been the birthplace for many of today’s high-productivity vibroseis methods that are shattering seismic acquisition records.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.
