Sercel Deploys WiNG for Seismic Acquisition in Turkey

Leading designer and manufacturer of innovative seismic equipment and reservoir monitoring instruments, Sercel, recently announced that it had completed its first delivery of WiNGNT, its next-generation wireless land nodal acquisition system. The purchaser was the Turkish Petroleum International Company and the system will be used for upcoming seismic acquisition projects in difficult-to-access mountainous areas of Turkey.

WiNG is a fully integrated nodal land acquisition system designed with a single data collection platform to manage operations more easily and efficiently. It integrates Sercel’s most sensitive broadband sensor ever, QuietSeis®, to acquire high precision seismic data. The node has been designed to minimise storage and transportation costs and, although weighing less that a kilogramme, it can record seismic data for up to 50 days. The data is delivered via the Data Completion Manager, a unique central software platform that significantly improves and automates the assignment of data collected in the field, while allowing for remote quality control and monitoring.

The reason for omitting the frontier provinces of Nordland VII and Troms II (offshore Lofoten and Vesterålen) from licensing, is strong resistance from environmentalists claiming that exploring for oil and gas will harm the fisheries and the overall environment.
