Fairfield to start Trinidad OBN survey

Written by  OE Staff Tuesday, 17 October 2017 02:00

FairfieldNodal is to start a large Z700 acquisition project offshore Trinidad in late October 2017.

FairfieldNodal’s Z700 data acquisition system uses Z700 ocean bottom nodes, which are placed on the seafloor to carry out surveys.

Fairfield says the Z700 system is easily deployed, requiring smaller crews and a minimum two-vessel configuration–one node management and one source vessel.

The firm says the system is ideally suited to meet the tough environmental conditions in the offshore Trinidad region that make ocean bottom cable or streamer surveys risky. 

"The Z700’s simplified deployment and retrieval process make navigating the difficult currents less difficult," says Fairfield. "And, its HSE-friendly design lowers operating risk in ecologically sensitive areas."

This acquisition project is expected to take four months to complete.
