Fairfield Geo Completes Stampede OBN Survey

Fairfield Geotechnologies has completed the Stampede deepwater ocean bottom node survey, located in the Green Canyon area of the Gulf of Mexico.

The field, operated by the Hess Corporation, is in approximately 1,067 meters of water.

The 238 square kilometers survey was the second deployment of Fairfield Geotechnologies’ ZXPLR system.

ZXPLR is marketed by the company as the newest generation of ocean bottom node technology and features a compact design, automated back deck systems, and powered and piloted subsea node deployment and retrieval for safe and efficient operations.

Charles (Chuck) Davison, Jr., president and CEO of Fairfield Geotechnologies, said: “Ocean bottom nodes are the only way to achieve the high quality, repeatable seismic data necessary to develop complex deepwater reservoirs. ZXPLR has proven, once again, that its innovative design can deliver that data safely and efficiently.”
