Hybrid (Streamer + Nodes)

Towed streamers are the most cost effective way to acquire short (<12km) offset p-wave seismic data in open water.

Nodes can deliver ultra high Signal to Noise ratio long offset p and s wave data in challenging shallow water and heavily obstructed areas.

Many operators are now using both techniques to deliver smart hybrid solutions.

  • Sparse node grids can be used to define an improved velocity field through Full Wave form Inversion. Streamer and node data can be acquired simultaneously or independently.

  • Nodes can be used to undershoot obstructed areas using shots from a simultaneously acquired streamer survey.

  • Short streamers towed behind an OBN shooting vessel can deliver short offset data, eliminating the need for dense, expensive nodes.
