StagSeis™ is a 'next-generation' solution for subsalt imaging designed to reduce exploration and production risk by providing the best seismic images below complex salt. It addresses the most challenging areas where conventional wide azimuth acquisition fails to illuminate targets below complex overburdens. It includes a patented acquisition design (staggered vessel configuration) with very long offsets (up to 20km) and full azimuth coverage (up to 10km) for improved illumination.
StagSeis improves illumination beneath complex overburdens compared with standard wide-azimuth.

StagSeis is a game-changing, full-azimuth, ultra long-offset marine solution (2:52)
StagSeis™ data are acquired using multiple vessels with an innovative staggered configuration, optimized to maximize the azimuth variation, and maintain the offset distribution. It has been developed to provide the ultra-long offsets, full azimuth and broad bandwidth (especially low frequencies) required to face the challenges of imaging in complex areas like the Gulf of Mexico.
It is fully compatible with BroadSeis™ broadband acquisition, adding enhanced low frequencies which further improve deep imaging and provide quantitative inversion results. Our state-of-the-art subsalt imaging technology and expertise ensure the best results with this new acquisition design. StagSeis can easily be infilled to a finer line spacing to increase resolution in promising areas and is easily repeatable for use as a 4D baseline survey.
