Tailoring acquisition geometries makes it easier to solve imaging challenges. From single sail line to full-azimuth coverage, illumination and data quality increases with the amount and diversity of data acquired. To determine the right acquisition and imaging solution, geophysical objectives have to be balanced by project economics.
It is best to start by defining the challenge, then select the technology and acquisition design.
Modern acquisition geometries may include simultaneous use of several vessels with a variety of source and receiver configurations. Thanks to the flexibility of our fleet and acquisition equipment, PGS can deliver all variants. To define the optimal solution, in terms of efficiency, coverage, and target illumination, we carry out detailed pre-survey modeling.
