Sercel announced today the launch of GPR300, a new nodal seismic acquisition solution specially designed for deployment in shallow waters down to depths of 300 meters. Developed in partnership with BGP, the new solution expands Sercel’s existing GPRNT range which includes GPR1500 for high-end deepwater subsurface imaging.
Compact and lightweight, GPR300 features Sercel’s unique QuietSeis® broadband digital sensor technology for ultraquiet performance and unmatched digital fidelity. Its ability to record high-fidelity low-frequency signal also makes it the ideal choice for high-end seismic imaging with full-waveform inversion (FWI). In addition, its omni-tilt sensor package corrects for node inclination on the seabed, ensuring the most accurate 3C recording.
Leveraging the architecture of Sercel’s “nodal technologies” family, GPR300 features a data completion manager (DCM), enabling operators to access all the seismic and meta-data on a single platform. GPRNT is also compatible with other members of the Sercel nodal technologies family, including the recently launched MicrOBSNT sparse nodal solution and WiNGNT land nodal system. This allows for seamless data acquisition coverage from offshore to onshore in the case of mixed-environment surveys.
GPR300 benefits from both BGP’s significant know-how in seismic acquisition and Sercel’s longstanding technical expertise in the innovation, design and manufacture of high-quality marine seismic equipment. BGP also provided valuable input from the field, ensuring that this new-generation node is precisely tailored to meet the very latest seismic industry requirements.
Emmanuelle Dubu, Sercel CEO, said: “We are delighted to launch a seabed nodal solution dedicated to the shallow water seismic acquisition market. With its innovative and flexible design, our game-changing GPR300 meets growing industry demand for high-quality seismic data for reservoir optimization. Furthermore, with the addition of this new nodal solution, Sercel is unique in being able to offer to the market a complete portfolio of products – from sources to receivers – that enables any operator to acquire the best-in-class low-frequency data for the latest seismic imaging technologies.”
