New node design enabling higher density seismic acquisition could be a game changer

Increased spatial sampling has always been the ‘holy grail’ for the seismic industry. Since the early 1990s everyone wanted to acquire denser land seismic surveys, but good reasons were often found to justify why it was not practical – whether it was the sheer volume of data collected, the large quantity of equipment, the limit of seismic resolution, or the exorbitant cost.

In this article, we outline the motivation behind the invention of a new generation of nodes. We will also discuss how, within a year of entering the market, these nodes have already disrupted the way some land seismic is being acquired across many industries, and how by scaling down the size of nodes, high-density seismic acquisition can finally be accessible to all.
