WesternGeco Deploys UniQ Land Seismic System in Kuwait

WesternGeco has deployed the UniQ point-receiver land seismic acquisition and processing system in Kuwait for Kuwait Oil Company (KOC). The system is currently acquiring data from 45,000 live point-receiver channels utilizing WesternGeco DX-80 Desert Explorer vibrators and MD Sweep technology.

Part of the Q-Technology portfolio, the UniQ system combines extreme channel count point-receiver technology with support for advanced simultaneous source techniques. Building upon the fidelity provided by the broad bandwidth geophone accelerometer sensor, UniQ can support up to 150,000 live channels at a two-millisecond sample interval.

"The point-receiver fidelity, advanced source techniques and tailored noise removal opportunities provided by UniQ generate high-quality seismic data, enabling decisions to be made faster and with more confidence," said Marwan Moufarrej, vice president, Land, WesternGeco.

The WesternGeco suite of advanced geophysical services includes electromagnetic services and the Q-Technology point-receiver high-fidelity seismic acquisition-to-inversion platform.
