OBS Technology Solutions in Intermediate & Deep Waters

Intermediate & Deep Waters

Seabed Geosolutions offers several solutions in intermediate to deep waters utilizing the following versatile ocean bottom seismic (OBS) technologies:

  • Manta® OBN - A single node technology for depths up to 3000 meters - Manta is the evolution of seabed seismic technology. A single node system for all depths and environments. Simplified, automated, safe and versatile, it goes where traditional streamer seismic can’t. To learn more, visit the Manta webpage.
  • CASE Abyss® OBN – ROV placed nodes ideal for intermediate to deep waters up to 3000 meters - There are occasions where towed streamers, ocean bottom cables, or shallow water cabled systems will have restricted access for imaging the subsurface. In these circumstances, we offer Case Abyss, a proprietary ocean bottom node system. Seabed Geosolutions nodes not only incorporate four component (4C) broadband surveys, but their flexibility also makes them ideal for obstacle avoidance or imaging in environmentally sensitive locations. Prolonged recording endurance and versatility in deployment method make our node solutions a highly viable option for challenging environments, as well as for enhanced subsurface imaging.  CASE Abyss node systems’ 4C technology and proprietary design offer enhanced coupling to the seafloor, stability and reduced noise compared to streamer seismic acquisition. CASE Abyss’ externally planted sensor provides controlled planting for maximum ground coupling and vector fidelity. 

Clearer, quieter data provide for easier multiple removal during processing and better subsurface imaging to help make well-informed decisions for the next step in field development.
