Sercel Sells Land Seismic Acquisition System to BGP - 13/12/2018


Sercel has been awarded a contract by BGP to supply land seismic equipment for a large onshore 3D seismic survey in the Middle East. The contract includes 100,000 Sercel 508XT channels equipped with strings of 12 SG-10 geophones. This large-scale 3D project encompasses several diverse environments, including areas with limited access such as industrial complexes, agricultural land and urban areas. The 508XT system is developed for these challenging conditions; its fault-tolerant cross technology (X-Tech) architecture, including local storage and automatic data rerouting, simplifies field operations and enables continuous acquisition.

Mega-crew surveys

Designed for high-resolution, high-productivity surveys, the 508XT will operate at a 2ms sample rate. In addition, deployed in combination with Sercel’s VE464 vibrator electronics, it will enable first-rate source productivity using the very latest vibroseis techniques.

Pascal Rouiller, Sercel CEO, said it is an honor for Sercel to support BGP in their acquisition of this giant onshore seismic survey. With over 25 systems already field-proven in the toughest conditions worldwide, the Sercel 508XT definitely is the system of choice for such mega-crew surveys. BGP can count on Sercel’s reliability and expertise to deliver the best productivity and the clearest subsurface data.
