ServicesExperience, Quality Control & Innovation

P-Cable 3D Seismic plan marine seismic surveys and acquire marine seismic data with industry and scientific partners. We further develop the P-Cable technology and offer offshore QC and on-shore marine seismic processing and interpretation.

Surveying and Planning

P-Cable 3D Seismic invented and developed the patented P-Cable 3D Seismic system. We have more than 10 years' experience in planning, rigging and surveying using the P-Cable system.

During tailored surveys for clients as well as multi-client surveys in cooperation with TGS, we have collected ~1000 km2 of commercial high-resolution 3D data and 7000 km of commercial 2D wide azimuth tie-lines. We have successfully operated the P-Cable system in the Barents Sea, one of the harshest environments in the world, for marine seismic 3D and 2D operations.


Technology Development

A core company activity is the development of P-Cable hardware and software, offering reliable and durable offshore equipment suited to various size vessels and spreads. We tailor the system to different aspects of marine seismic acquisition: resource exploration, marine geotechnics and applied geoscience.

Equipment Sales

The P-Cable system is produced on license by Geometrics Inc, San Jose, California, in the heart of California's Silicon Valley. P-Cable 3D Seismic AS and Geometrics Inc partnered in 2010 in order to deliver a complete high-resolution 3D marine seismic system.

"Designed in Norway, Made in California"

Geometrics Inc has more than 40 years experience designing and building geophysical instruments.

Seismic Processing and Interpretation

We have more than ten years of experience with processing and interpretation of high-resolution 3D marine seismic data. Together with Deco Geophysical and TGS, we developed state-of-the-art broadband 3D marine seismic processing workflows for P-Cable data. Our collaboration with Deco Geophysical dates back 2005, and together we have develop navigation and QC processing software and work-flows uniquely suited to the P-Cable technology.

Real-Time QC

Quality control of marine seismic data is key to acquiring good data. With our partner Deco Geophysical we offer superior real-time quality control with RadExPro software, tailored to P-Cable systems.

Fast-Track Processing

Together with Deco Geophysical, we provide fast-track processing of 3D and 2D data, for quick data delivery to onshore interpretation. This is important for decision-making processes during ongoing surveys.

Seismic Interpretation

We offer 3D marine seismic interpretation and visualization services by our experienced staff.
