Sercel Puts Its New Streamer in Action Offshore Ireland

Nantes-based designer and manufacturer of seismic equipment Sercel informed that its multi-sensor solid streamer, the Sentinel MS, has been commercially deployed for the first time.

The Sentinel MS is being operated on a 3D CGG multi-client survey being conducted by the CGG Geo Coral in the Southern Porcupine Basin in Ireland.

The Sentinel MS was specifically designed to deliver multi-sensor data sets with aim to help the industry achieve the best broadband imaging and generate more detailed and accurate images of the subsurface.

Its technology relies on a low-noise hydrophone and two accelerometers offering directional measurements for both cross-line and vertical wave fronts. Used in combination, the hydrophone and the accelerometers meet the challenge of receiver ghost-free acquisition and add to the broadband toolbox to offer the broadest bandwidth seismic data imaging techniques.

Pascal Rouiller, Sercel CEO, said: “This inaugural large 3D survey confirms the Sentinel MS as the state-of-the-art technology streamer for high-end multi-sensor streamer acquisition. We are confident that the Sentinel MS will attract increasing interest from the oil and gas industry as part of its quest to achieve greater processing efficiency and clearer imaging.”
