Benoît Ribadeau-Dumas, Executive Vice President, Marine Division, CGGVeritas : "We selected the full set of Sercel systems to ensure our high-end Oceanic Champion vessel achieves unrivalled operational efficiency and seismic imaging in difficult and challenging environments such as the North Sea, where it is currently acquiring a large high-resolution survey. Operating with a 14 x 6.6 km variable-depth streamer configuration, the choice of Nautilus is particularly reassuring as it ensures better control of the 50-meter streamer separation we are using for this high-density survey."
Pascal Rouiller, CEO, Sercel, said: "By selecting our complete offering of marine seismic systems, representing 40 years of Sercel know-how, the Oceanic Champion now deploys the most reliable and high-performance acquisition technology to deliver optimum data results. The very positive feedback we have received is proof that Sercel continues to deliver the most advanced solutions for optimum marine seismic recording."
