High-resolution P-Cable 3D data reveal superior seismic imaging of potential hydrocarbon reservoirs. This figure shows faulted Jurassic sandstone prospects in the Barents Sea.
The P-Cable data are compared with conventional 3D seismic data - both datasets are processed with the TGS Clari-Fi™ method. Slide line to view the difference.

High-resolution NCS P-Cable 3D Data

NCS P-Cable 3D Seismic AS is an independent company that has developed the P-Cable technology and operational methods. We have acquired P-Cable seismic for more than a decade, and participated in the collection of 1500 km2 of commercial data and more than 40 academic surveys. Our light and flexible equipment is a robust technology useful for a variety of industry and geological studies.

The full picture is in the details

The P-Cable seismic system is a versatile tool for acquisition of high-resolution 3D data and regional 2D profiles. Through short inline spacing of 6 to 15 meters we collect high trace density seismic data, imaging the subsurface with up to four times the vertical and horizontal resolution compared to conventional 3D seismic data.

NCS P-Cable Applications

NCS P-Cable can resolve geological structures with outcrop-like resolution due to the high trace-density and small bin sizes, combined with a broad frequency spectrum. P-Cable data are useful for detailed imaging of petroleum reservoirs, geotechnical site surveys and geohazard assessments, time-laps (4D) seismic surveys, and marine geological studies.
