TenzorGeo's ocean bottom seismic technology helps improve exploration success by accurately locating hydrocarbon deposits:
- Supporting existing methods of seismic surveying with comparison data to increase certainty when making decisions about drilling
- Providing technology that is adaptable, non-intrusive and more accurate at a fraction of the cost of conventional methods
- Utilising more than 50 years' industry experience to revolutionise well positioning
TenzorGeo's Ocean Bottom Seismometer (OBS) technology is designed to "listen" to the subsurface environment and reliably record low-frequency signals. The hermetically sealed device hosts a three-component low-frequency seismometer, a low-noise amplifier, a recorder, a battery, a horizontal level stabilisation system, and a gyroscope. The company's OBS devices are deployed from vessels in a free-fall fashion and submerged in a grid formation using embedded GPS. They record a range of measurements before an automatic resurfacing system recovers each device. The data is collected onboard the vessel and a report is compiled. The design of the automatic resurfacing system method allows the user to quickly deploy and recover the devices in depths of up to 6,000m.
TenzorGeo's vessel-deployed buoys record low-frequency signals from the seabed. They are recovered by an automatic resurfacing system, data is collected and sent to the company's laboratory for interpretation.
