Magseis: Technology key to unlock Red Sea spoils

Saudi Aramco looking to new seismic solutions in exploration drive in deep waters

State-owned Saudi Aramco is hoping that innovative seismic acquisition technology will help the company to successfully explore the geologically complex sub-salt of the ecologically sensitive Red Sea.

These innovative technologies for shallow-water seismic surveying included Magseis’ autonomous miniaturised cable nodes, while contractor Kietta deployed streamers from remotely controlled drones.

Saleh Al Saleh, manager of Aramco’s Red Sea exploration department, said that conventional seismic technologies such as ocean bottom node and ocean bottom cable (OBC) had their limitations.
