Fairfield Geotechnologies Wins GoM Survey Contract

Fairfield Geotechnologies said it has been awarded a contract by BHP to acquire up to 1,004 sq. miles of ocean bottom node seismic data in the Alaminos Canyon and East Breaks areas of the Western Gulf of Mexico. The survey, located in water depths ranging from 2,500 to 7,250 ft., will employ two seismic source vessels and Fairfield Geotechnologies’ newest ocean bottom node technology, ZXPLR.

The survey design will deliver high quality seismic data for imaging, as well as provide the long offset, full azimuth data necessary for high-resolution velocity model building to enhance existing reflection seismic data.
