WesternGeco has devoted considerable resources to developing new techniques for acquiring what it considers the highest quality towed streamer marine seismic data possible. The result is a unique system, Q-Marine, the only single-sensor, towed streamer seismic system.
Last summer, the company’s seismic vessel, Geco Topaz, deployed the new system on surveys for BP, Kerr-McGee and Statoil in the North Sea. Initial feedback from these operators is positive and strengthens the company’s faith in the system throughout its long development period. This article summarizes the underlying rationale for the system and shows comparative examples from the operators of last summer’s projects.
