French seismic data firm CGG’s sensing and monitoring division Sercel has secured a contract to deliver its GPR300 seabed nodal solution to Chinese oil and gas exploration, refining and distribution company Sinopec.

Sinopec plans to use the Sercel GPR300 solution for a seismic survey work in China.

Sercel said that more than 6,000 nodes are planned to be installed in the Bohai Sea off the east coast of mainland China, this month.

Claimed to be designed to deliver ‘unprecedented’ broadband signal sensing capability and fidelity, the GPR300 solution is based on Sercel’s QuietSeis MEMS technology.

The subsea nodal solution with compact and lightweight design also delivers ultra-quiet performance to enable ‘best-in-class’ subsurface imaging.

Sercel CEO Emmanuelle Dubu said: “On the strength of our in-depth knowledge of the seismic industry and the greater opportunities we see node acquisition bringing in terms of enhanced data quality and insight for client decision-making, we believe GPR300’s design and configuration is the optimal solution for the ocean bottom node market.

“Having already been deployed on high-profile surveys in the Middle East region, the system is fast becoming the preferred solution worldwide.”

Earlier this year, Sercel delivered additional land seismic equipment to Sinopec to support a 3D survey in China this winter.

​The equipment delivered include a 508XT acquisition system with 25,000 channels as well as vibrator Auto-Guidance and Smart LF software.

In a press statement Sercel said: “This purchase of a fifth 508XT system in only four years brings the client’s 508XT inventory to a total of 130,000 channels and reaffirms the Chinese oil and gas producer’s complete satisfaction with the system’s performance.”
