ION Geophysical Corp. announced that its Holland-based Sensor B.V. subsidiary has commercialized a new, high performance geophone, the SM-24XL, which leverages a simplified product design to deliver enhanced durability in the field while continuing to record high quality acoustic data for customers in oil & gas exploration. The SM-24XL recently underwent stringent testing with TU Delft University and Sensor’s long-standing customer, Geofizyka Torun, an international geophysical service provider specializing in onshore and transition zone seismic acquisition.

            Henryk Chojnowski, VP and Chief Technology Officer of Geofizyka Torun, commented: “Our 25-year relationship with Sensor affords us an opportunity to be early adopters of new technology and provides an operational advantage for our crews. The new SM-24XL not only proved to be as reliable and efficient as the previous generation of Sensor geophones, but also delivered the same high quality data our clients rely upon to make strategic drilling decisions. We are thoroughly pleased with the new, simplified design, and we anticipate improved durability and product performance, along with full support in the field by the Sensor team.”

            The XL (eXtended Life) variant of the SM-24 maintains the technical specifications of the first generation of SM-24 geophones while incorporating a simplified design that enables longer field life and greater return on investment. The new SM-24XL geophone is manufactured in Dubai under the rigorous ISO:9001 quality standards and is the only geophone that comes with a four-year warranty.
