    Polarcus claims record-breaking tow

    Projects and Operations // January 21, 2016

    Polarcus says it is currently acquiring a record-breaking ultra-wide 3D marine seismic project offshore Myanmar.

    Polarcus Amani is towing an in-sea configuration that measures 1.8km wide across the front ends. With each of the ten streamers separated by 200m, the total area covered by the spread is 17.6km2.

    This is the largest in-sea configuration ever towed by a single seismic vessel as well as the largest man-made moving object on earth.

    The acquisition plan in Myanmar will deliver up to 190km2 per day, a production rate that the company claims is "currently unrivalled in the seismic industry."
