Sonardyne International Ltd. reported Monday that Norway's Magseis has selected its acoustic positioning equipment to support a Saudi Aramco's S78 project, a deepwater ocean bottom seismic survey, in the Red Sea.
The Norwegian firm and partner BGP will commence work on the 9 month-long project in July, using a large network of ocean bottom recording nodes, each of which will be accurately positioned using Sonardyne's Ranger 2 USBL (Ultra-Short BaseLine) and Small Seismic Transponder (SST) technologies.
Magseis will also deploy its proprietary Marine Autonomous Seismic System (MASS) for the survey. In addition, Magseis has ordered Sonardyne's Lightweight Release Transponders (LRTs) and rope canisters to enable recovery of seafloor equipment following data acquisition.
