Session: ACQ 1 Marine Seismic
Authors: Tilman Klüver, Stian Hegna, and Jostein Lima, PGS.
Tilman Klüver shares results of the continuous wavefield acquisition in offshore Malaysia. The continuous firing of individual air gun elements with random firing intervals provides high-quality seismic images with a greatly-reduced sound footprint, creating a unique opportunity in environmentally sensitive survey areas, and improves source-side sampling. A variety of source configurations and firing strategies were tested while optimizing the applicability of the methodology to shallow water environments.
