CGG's Vibroseis high-productivity and cost-effective scheme enables our crews, in the framework of the UltraSeis solution, to acquire in excess of a couple of thousands VPs per day, covering 1,000 sq km per month.


Main components of our high-productivity performance are:

  • Operational models featuring mechanization and automation allowing to achieve 30,000 VPs per day
  • Sercel 508XT recording system scalable to 1 million channels and delivering a true zero down-time recording
  • Dynamic slip-sweep acquisition where we manage the fleet of vibrators (single or groups) by using and mixing slip-sweep  and distance separation, in an automated way depending on the vibrators relative positions on the super-spread.  
  • Real-time in-field QC and imaging, handling Tb of data per day and validating the data of our high-productivity schemes.

CGG has pioneered advanced Vibroseis technology and deploys both proprietary and industry standard high-productivity techniques, including:

  • HPVA high-productivity slip-sweep which materialistically models and removes the harmonic noise associated with the slip-sweep technique
  • V1 Single Vibrator point-source acquisition for finer sampling of the wave-field, free of source-array effects
  • Distance Separated Simultaneous Sweeping (DS3)*
  • DS3 with slip-sweep
  • Independent Simultaneous Sweeping (ISS)*
  • High Fidelity Vibratory Source (HFVS)**

* DSSS (DS3) and ISS are BP technologies

** HFVS is an ExxonMobil technology
