Important Rescue During New Multibeam Echosounder Test
The inspection vessel Ejnar Mikkelsen from the Royal Danish Navy recently tested a new Multibeam Echosounder (MBES) during a hydrographic survey, and also experienced that it was very helpful in a rescue operation. As Ejnar Mikkelsen was in the process of conducting hydrographic surveys west of the Kok Islands close to Nuuk, it was contacted by the local police who needed help for a rescue assignment in the inner part of the fjord at Nuuk. Two teenage girls had been reported missing after a fishing trip. »»

PSDM Brings Understanding in Central North Sea

PSDM Brings Understanding in Central North Sea

  19/11/2014
Although the Central North Sea (CNS) is a mature basin, it is still rich in opportunities for the development and discovery of new fields as the area is notoriously challenging for seismic imaging, especially in the deep high-pressure high-temperature (HPHT) part of the Central Graben. However, CGG’s Cornerstone dataset benefits from a portfolio of new technology to address these imaging challenges, creating new opportunities. The advanced ghost wavefield elimination (GWE) technique has been applied to the legacy Cornerstone data to extend the bandwidth as near as possible to the new BroadSeis data, so that it can be merged to create a contiguous broadband pre-stack depth-migrated (PSDM) dataset. »»
