BroadSeis with BroadSource

The combination of BroadSourceTM & BroadSeisTM brings the best broadband source and receiver solutions together in one seamless package, to deliver a ghost-free broadband solution with the widest available bandwidth at 2.5 - 200Hz. This upper frequency is limited only by the sample interval Nyquist and the absorption effect of the earth. The most detailed high-resolution subsurface images are delivered by the resulting sharp wavelets without sidelobes.

The BroadSeis-BroadSource solution

  • provides over 6 octaves of signal in the shallow section (from 2.5Hz to 200 Hz),
  • delivers ultra-high resolution of near surface detail and can be used for site surveys and shallow hazard identification
  • has all the advantages of a conventional source - stable, reliable, good directivity and available in flip-flop mode.
  • is available on all CGG vessels, with over 75,000km2 of BroadSource data so far acquired

Ghost-free broadband data

BroadSeis extends the bandwidth to both the low frequencies, by enabling the streamer to be towed deeper, and the high frequencies, by removal of the receiver ghost notch. BroadSource complements the BroadSeis receiver deghosting solution by removing the source ghost notch to extend the spectrum to the sampling interval Nyquist, without compromising the low frequencies.

Shallow Hazard Identification

The 6 octaves of signal provided by BroadSource in the shallow section delivers incredible resolution and provides a detailed 3D image of the near surface. It becomes possible to identify sedimentary infill in old glaciation channels and clearly delineate unconformities and geohazards. This makes the data suitable for use as a site survey.

Accurate well-ties

The broad bandwidth achieved using the BroadSeis– BroadSource combination produces wavelets which represent the true formation signature, without the confusion of sidelobe noise. This provides excellent ties with well data.
