This configuration of equipment has a moving width of 1.850 metres and the seismic spread covers a total area of about 12 square kilometres. The Dolphin modern and high capacity fleet, once again proves its ability to deliver cost efficient and powerful solutions to our clients.

"Ophir Energy PLC challenged the industry to provide a cost efficient solution to acquire their large 10,000 square kilometre survey in Myanmar,” said, Bjarne Stavenes, vice president, Technical, Dolphin Geophysical.

“Dolphin responded by offering this ultra-wide towing solution. After a swift mobilisation, Dolphin's Sanco Sword is now in steady production with acquisition of about 150 square kilometres in a single day. This is believed to be a world record for our industry and we expect Sword to become the benchmark vessel when it comes to productivity going forward."

As a fully integrated geophysical company, Dolphin is also delivering a complete Fast Track on-board processing system powered by our proprietary OpenCPS software, and its Singapore processing office will ensure a timely delivery of a complete high quality Pre-Stack Time Migrated (PSTM) SHarp Broadband dataset.

Rival geoscience firm CGG has claimed to have performed a larger spread in April 2013 with a full-azimuth spread in the Gulf of Mexico.
