Increase Efficiency or Resolution

The deployment of three sources to increase efficiency without compromising trace density, or to increase crossline resolution without compromising turnaround time, is one of the many new geometries enabled by our SyncSource™ technology and continuous recording. Multi-Source is just one of the innovative geometry options now available in our acquisition toolbox. It is fully compatible with BroadSource™.

Multi-Source Benefits

Multi-Source acquisition can deliver increased efficiency or increased trace density and resolution without compromising data quality:

  • Increase efficiency with wider streamer separation while preserving trace density to maintain crossline resolution
  • Increase crossline resolution with the same streamer separation without increasing turnaround time
  • Continuous recording provides the option for any length of shot record for deep illumination
  • Fully compatible with BroadSource
  • Reduced HSE exposure due to fewer vessel passes to achieve the same data density and fewer streamers in the water, so reduced barnacle issues and fewer work boat missions
  • CGG Subsurface Imaging expertise for optimal deblending.
  • Our fleet is equipped with upgraded Sercel SeaProNav navigation systems, designed to implement the controlled delays required for blended acquisition

A Range of Innovative Geometries

  • Our marine technology and subsurface imaging experts can advise and tailor an acquisition solution to meet your survey objectives
  • We have the survey design tools, and acquisition capabilities to acquire the right data for your geological target, your time frame and your budget
  • We can advise whether Multi-Source, or alternative SyncSource geometries (such as WidePass HD) would yield the best results, or design a custom-made acquisition geometry
  • All proposed designs using SyncSource technology are validated by our Subsurface Imaging experts on a case by case basis to ensure optimal parameterization
