Moving forward, the oil & gas industry will demand seismic data of ever higher quality.

Exploring complex geologies, mature fields, pre-salt and sub-basalt reservoirs and fractured carbonate reservoirs, and developing and producing reservoirs with large complexity drives the need for ever more improved reservoir characterisation, geomodels, 4D data for Reservoir Monitoring, IOR and more.

Therefore, ever increasing demands to improve infill drilling, monitor injection, identify undrained compartments, optimize well planning, increase recovery and extend field life-time will continue to drive seismic acquisition. Seismic data of higher quality, better signal/noise ratio, larger bandwidth, free of ghosts to name a few, are needed.

Hence, worldwide the industry is moving into seabed acquisition. Only seabed acquisition, characterized by low ambient noise, stationary coupling can create that perfect environment necessary to acquire seismic data of superior quality.

Of course, this is only because Magseis also has the perfect toolset: With experience drawn from marine engineering, telecommunication, and our own R&D department. Magseis has developed, and continues to improve its unrivalled range of seabed nodes: MASS (Marine Autonomous Seismic System). MASS's dynamic range and low-noise floor is unique in the industry.

Magseis is utilising the unique opportunities provided by seabed aquisition and enabled by Magseis's proprietary technology to design target-orientated surveys to client specification.

For a start, keeping the full freedom in choosing fold, azimuths and offsets in mind, a seismic survey can be designed to optimize reservoir illumination. And not only optimizing illumination! The low ambient noise and Magseis's proprietary nodes enable full-bandwidth recordings down to lowest frequencies. And not only extending bandwidth! Magseis's proven nodes are characterized by stable true-amplitude response over time. Magseis's seabed data are truly broadband seismic data right on target.

Broadband data right on the target make Magseis's seabed data perfectly suitable for improved multiple attenuation through PZ summation and immediate full-waveform inversion.

Furthermore, Magseis's multi-component broadband data also record converted waves. Converted waves, in turn, enable elastic imaging for improved reservoir characterization and fracture characterization.

Magseis delivers multi-component broadband full-bandwidth data from seabed acquisition. And Magseis will continue to deliver such seismic data!
