Recent developments in land seismic source technology have been mainly oriented towards the improvement of productivity and broadband capabilities.
Increasing sources productivity is a cost enabler for high-quality imaging projects, where single vibrators operate with advanced acquisition techniques such as blended shooting on high trace density spreads. Increasing source broadband capability and improving the associated QC provide clear benefits in terms of vertical resolution, signal penetration, inversion efficiency and ease of interpretation.
This abstract presents several recent breakthroughs in source technology, and questions the industry about expected future directions. Please click below to learn more about it.
