Fairfield Geotechnologies 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 innovative survey design will not only deliver high quality seismic data for imaging, but also provide the long offset, full azimuth data necessary for high-resolution velocity model building to enhance existing reflection seismic data.

'We are very pleased that BHP has chosen Fairfield Geotechnologies and ZXPLR for this challenging new project. It’s exciting to have an operator on-board to challenge traditional acquisition designs and try new, innovative acquisition techniques,' says Charles (Chuck) Davison, President and CEO of Fairfield Geotechnologies. 'There’s no doubt that OBN technology is the best solution to meet BHP’s imaging requirements and our ZXPLR and acquisition team have a proven track record of safe, efficient and reliable project execution.'
