Polarcus Amani is towing an in-sea configuration that measures 1.8-km wide across the front ends. With each of the ten streamers separated by 200 m, the total area covered by the spread is 17.6 km2. This is the largest in-sea configuration ever towed by a single seismic vessel as well as the largest man-made moving object on earth.

With such an achievement, Polarcus is setting new acquisition performance records. The acquisition plan in Myanmar will deliver up to 190 km2 per day, a production rate that is currently unrivaled in the seismic industry.

"Such industry leading operational efficiency in Myanmar by one of our right-sized 3D seismic vessels exemplifies Polarcus' strategy to deliver fit-for-purpose geophysical solutions to our clients,” Polarcus COO Duncan Eley said.
