For exploration and production (E&P) companies, a key driver is to maximize the life of producing fields and production facilities. It has already been demonstrated that ocean-bottom node technology (OBN) delivers the highest quality seismic data, Earlier this year the industry’s first and largest ultra-long offset deepwater multiclient OBN survey was completed by TGS. This achievement represents a significant step-change in industry approach and could pave the way for a whole new era of exploration growth strategy.
