WesternGeco Sets Seismic Record in Kuwait with UniQ

March 9, 2010 at 10:08 am Leave a comment

Schlumberger’s WesternGeco business unit announced that its UniQ integrated point-receiver land seismic system has set a new industry record in Kuwait for Kuwait Oil Company (KOC) in acquiring data from 80,000 live digital point-receiver channels at a two-millisecond sample interval.

            During sustained slip-sweep production in February, UniQ technology acquired and real-time quality checked one terabyte of data per hour – the equivalent of five days of production for a typical 3000-channel conventional crew. All data were concurrently pre-conditioned using the Q-Xpress infield integrated seismic data acquisition and processing workflow for near-real-time seismic data analysis. The UniQ system is being deployed in conjunction with WesternGeco DX-80 Desert Explorer vibrators and MD Sweep low-frequency technology.

            Part of the Q-Technology point-receiver seismic hardware and software portfolio, the UniQ system combines extreme channel count technology with support for advanced simultaneous source techniques. Building upon the fidelity provided by the broad bandwidth geophone accelerometer sensor, the system can support up to 150,000 live channels at a two-millisecond sample interval.

            “UniQ continues to set new standards of performance in the land seismic business, proving that sustained high productivity can be reliably combined with high channel count recording,” said Marwan Moufarrej, VP Land, WesternGeco.
