Polarcus Limited, a Dubai-headquarted seismic company, is currently acquiring an ultra-wide 3D marine seismic project offshore Myanmar. Polarcus Amani is towing an in-sea configuration that measures 1.1 mile (1.8 kilometers) wide across the front ends. With each of the 10 streamers separated by 656 feet (200 meters), the total area covered by the spread is 6.8 square miles (17.6 square kilometers). This is the largest in-sea configuration ever towed by a single seismic vessel as well as the largest man-made moving object on earth.
With such an achievement, Polarcus is setting new acquisition performance records. The acquisition plan in Myanmar will deliver up to 73.4 square miles (190 square kilometers) per day, a production rate that is currently unrivalled in the seismic industry.
Commenting further on this achievement, Polarcus COO, Duncan Eley stated:
"Such industry leading operational efficiency in Myanmar by one of our right-sized 3D seismic vessels exemplifies Polarcus' strategy to deliver fit-for-purpose geophysical solutions to our clients. We work closely with all clients to ensure both their efficiency and data quality objectives are met and exceeded."
