RT2 PERFORMED VERY WELL IN THE 230 SQUARE KILOMETER SURVEY DURING HARSH WINTER WEATHER CONDITIONS.

SUGAR LAND, TX (June 11, 2018) — Tyumen Service Geophysical Company (TSGC), headquartered in Tyumen, Russia, and Wireless Seismic, Inc. (WSI), headquartered in Sugar Land, Texas, are pleased to announce the successful completion of a large-scale, 3D seismic survey, using WSI’s RT2 real-time and cable-free seismic acquisition system, in the Megon region of West Siberia in Russia.
A dynamite energy source was used for the survey covering 230 square kilometers during harsh winter weather conditions, with typical temperatures below -30°C and peaking to -50°C. RT2 performed very well and delivered comparable data to the legacy cabled telemetry system used in addition to the RT2 for the survey. Since the acquisition project was part of Gazprom Neft’s ongoing “green initiative” program, the RT2 system represented a significantly lower environmental footprint when compared to the legacy cabled system. In addition to the lack of telemetry cables, the added efficiencies of RT2 were very much appreciated by TSGC, including the real-time data return and the fully interactive control of the seismic spread, features not available in other cable-free technologies.
“TSGC is very impressed that the RT2 system demonstrated superior efficiencies when compared to the legacy cabled system,” commented Nikita Kharin, CEO of TSGC, “and TSGC looks forward to more successes with RT2 in the future.”
“Wireless Seismic is very pleased with TSGC’s successful results, and we thank TSGC for their continued support of RT2,” stated Mick Lambert, CEO of WSI. “The real-time capabilities of RT2 proved to be critical in obtaining high-quality seismic data in the harsh environments of this challenging project.”
