Deepwater Survey Completed in Working Oilfield
Fairfield Geotechnologies completes Gulf of Mexico Ocean Bottom Node survey
Fairfield Geotechnologies announces the successful completion in May 2018 of the Stampede deepwater ocean bottom node survey, located in the Green Canyon area of the Gulf of Mexico. The field, operated by the Hess Corporation (HES), is in approximately 3,500 ft. of water.
The 238 km2 survey was the second successful deployment of Fairfield Geotechnologies’ ZXPLR system. ZXPLR is the newest generation of ocean bottom node technology and features a compact design, automated back deck systems, and powered and piloted subsea node deployment and retrieval for safe and efficient operations.
Charles Davison, Jr., President and CEO of Fairfield Geotechnologies, noted the complexity of conducting seismic operations in a working oilfield. “Ocean bottom nodes are the only way to achieve the high quality, repeatable seismic data necessary to develop complex deepwater reservoirs. ZXPLR has proven, once again, that its innovative design can deliver that data safely and efficiently.”
