SUGAR LAND, Texas -- Wireless Seismic, Gazprom Neft and Asian Oilfield Services Limited (ASIAN), announced that a world record has been set for the number of live seismic channels recorded, in real time, by a cable-free seismic recording system.
ASIAN has been acquiring a 270-sq-km 3D seismic survey over a mountainous prospect in the Kurdish Autonomous Region of Iraq (Kurdistan). Data have now been acquired with a spread of more than 6,200 live channels with real-time transmission of all the seismic data, setting a new standard for real-time, cable-free seismic acquisition.
