    Western Neptune to start multi-client survey

    News // February 15, 2002
    WesternGeco has announced that the Western Neptune, the company's highest capacity Q-Marine seismic survey vessel, will begin a large multi-client survey in the Gulf of Mexico in early March. Q-Marine technology uses calibrated sensors, sources, and steerable streamers to deliver exceptional image quality and repeatability.

    "WesternGeco has a very long-term commitment to Q-Technology and to the multi-client market," said Jim White, Vice President of Multi-client Services. "Based on the results we've seen for Q-Marine surveys so far, we are excited about continuing our deployment of this technology in the multiclient arena."

    The Western Neptune will deploy 10 eight-kilometer streamers and is the fourth WesternGeco seismic vessel to be equipped with the proprietary Q-Marine system.
