Titan – Innovation in Vibrator Design
Jason Criss

The new AHV-V Titan takes advantage of decades of engineering and manufacturing experience and builds on the features that have made vibroseis a success while enhancing the features that will result in better geophysical performance. Enhanced low frequency, higher fidelity signal transmission and lower radiated noise signature combined make INOVA’s Titan the most technologically advanced vibroseis in the market.

 BGP Leverages Quantum Nodal System to Maximise Project Efficiency
BGP Leverages Quantum Nodal System to Maximize Project Efficiency

BGP recently completed a large scale challenging project using the Quantum nodal system, maximising project efficiency. The project in China’s Sichuan Province was completed utilizing over 29,000 nodes and INOVA’s iX1 acquisition system.

Nodes have become a popular system architecture for seismic data acquisition due to the benefits of higher operational efficiency, lower downtime, lower HSE risk and lower environmental impact. Our very own Dennis Pavel discusses Data Download and Transcription in Nodal Seismic Acqusition Systems and the key steps involved in order to deliver seismic data.

 iX1 Delivering Seamless Dataset in Challenging Operations
iX1 Delivering Seamless Operations

BGP, a subsidiary of China National Petroleum Company, completed the first phase of a hybrid project in North East China, utilizing 22,000 G3i HD channels and 29,000 Quantum channels. Hybrid operations present a major geophysical and operational challenge for contractors in providing a seamless dataset of cable and cableless receivers. BGP overcame this challenge with iX1, the command and control platform included in every INOVA seismic acquisition system. iX1 allows INOVA cable and cableless systems to deploy and operate seamlessly, delivering a unified workflow for efficient hybrid operations.

 USC Georgia - UNIVIB
University of South Carolina Images Deep Targets Using INOVA's UNIVIB
Remarkable Source Energy Penetration Enables High-Quality Data Acquisition

The University of South Carolina (USC) and its research partners were commissioned by the US Department of Energy (DOE) to conduct a reconnaissance project in late 2013 to acquire data for a deep target of Jurassic/Triassic sediments within the South Georgia Rift Basin. USC contracted Bay Geophysical Inc., an experienced seismic service provider based in Michigan, to acquire 81 km of 2D seismic data for exploration of the southern Georgia basin. Bay Geophysical and USC researchers required a robust vibrator capable of generating high energy-force that can easily maneuver through Georgia's urban and agriculturally sensitive areas.

 Tesla Bear Creek
INOVA's Hawk® Autonomous Nodal System Soars To New Heights
GPerottjiencgt: t Bhe aJro Cb rDeoenkeS.CAN™

Tesla Exploration Inc. was awarded a 3D/3C project to explore 90 sq. miles of the High Plains near Cheyenne, Wyoming. Known as Bear CreekSCAN, the project location encompassed open prairies, rolling hills and scattered, cultivated fields. Unpaved and two-track dirt roads provided reasonable access to the survey area, making deployment and shooting easier for Tesla crews in this terrain. Because of the size of this largescale cableless acquisition project, Tesla needed a system that could withstand rigorous field usage, provide optimal operational flexibility and offer wireless QC capabilities for increased crew productivity.

Willesden Green

Tesla Exploration Ltd. was selected for the Willesden Green 3D/3C seismic acquisition project, a winter deployment covering 260 sq km (100 sq mi) near Rocky Mountain House in Alberta, Canada. The project area encompassed a working oil field production area and unpopulated terrain with rolling hills and patches of dense evergreen forest. Unpaved roads offered reasonable access, but Tesla crews also required snowmobiles in off-road areas for greater efficiency in deployment and acquisition QC.
