SUGAR LAND, Texas - Wednesday, September 18th 2013
-- Wireless Seismic, Inc., the leading innovator of real-time and cable-free seismic data acquisition systems for the oil and gas industry, announced today the first sale of its 3-channel RT System 2 seismic data acquisition system to a major oilfield service company. The 3-channel system will be used on passive seismic monitoring projects, initially in the North American region.
The 3-channel wireless remote unit (3C-WRU) operates without cables and with ultra-low power consumption, in the same manner as Wireless Seismic’s 1-channel WRU. An extension to the company’s proprietary 2.4 GHz radio technology has been developed that supports the transmission of seismic data from multiple channels housed within a single WRU and with geophones deployed at multiple depths. With the addition of the 3C-WRU, RT System 2 can be deployed with a mixture of 1C and 3C surface arrays and 3C near-surface buried arrays, at scale, all managed interactively from a single central control system.
Key factors in the selection of RT System 2 by the oilfield service company are its ease of deployment, efficient logistics, reduced HSE factors, and flexible geometries. Because no cables are involved, deploying the WRUs is faster, crew and transportation costs are reduced, productivity is increased, and the risk of injuries is lowered. Also, RT System 2 enables significantly more flexibility than cabled systems in deploying the complex recording arrays that are becoming popular in the passive monitoring market.
"This sale further confirms that RT System 2 is an ideal technology for passive monitoring projects,” said Roy Kligfield, CEO, Wireless Seismic. "We continue to add capabilities to RT System 2 to broaden its range of applications and to take advantage of its unique abilities to deliver real-time seismic data without the limitations of cables.”
Wireless Seismic will exhibit RT System 2 at the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) annual conference in Houston, Texas, September 22-25.
