Planning and efficiently executing a seismic survey can dramatically reduce the cost of acquiring seismic data. During a seismic acquisition, many complex activities are happening simultaneously - plans can change rapidly in response to the weather, ocean conditions, marine life, crew changes and other nearby vessels.
RPS’ seismic project coordinators and QC specialists take a pragmatic approach to maximising operational efficiency while minimising risk. We use our Osprey software to generate a visual overview of the project location. And as infield conditions change, coordinators and QC specialists use Osprey’s unique visualisation tools to adjust plans and improve the efficiency of the seismic survey.
The outcome is better quality seismic data faster, reduced costs and minimised risks.
The level of change and disruption we’ve experienced over the last few years has seen the development of innovative work practices accelerated, including remote survey operations. Our ability to deliver these services remotely delivers real value on our clients projects – some of the advantages are explored in this short video.
Onshore design and planning
Infield survey management
The quality of the data acquired can be negatively impacted by seismic interference (SI) when multiple seismic vessels are working in close proximity. Depending on the severity of the impact, data may need to be re-acquired, which could invoke timeshare and increase costly standby time.
RPS’ seismic project coordinators and QC specialists proactively forecast and design mitigation strategies for vessels to minimise or avoid SI altogether.
Actively monitoring each of the activities during seismic acquisition surveys is complex. If not adequately managed, lines may need to be aborted - increasing project duration and cost.
RPS’ SIMOPS survey and QC management team use our customised Osprey 3D/4D seismic software to generate a visual overview of the project area and log activities in real-time. They identify unforeseen issues and manage them before they impact the seismic operation. Shooting plans are available online, in real-time, keeping all parties up-to-date, informed and importantly safe.
