Stian Hegna shares results of a field test using eSeismic in offshore Malaysia with two main objectives: 1. Test new gun controller functionality allowing for operating a larger number of sources operating simultaneously, and 2. Validate the method in shallow water settings. The continuous triggering of individual air gun elements with short and random time intervals results in low correlation between wavefields emitted from multiple simultaneous sources because each source emits a unique wavefield. This makes the method suitable for simultaneous source applications where many sources are operated simultaneously.
