We are posting here a summary of an OBS market study by Oslo-based independent consultant Arkwright Consulting AS. It confirms the expectation on which inApril was established in 2012, namely that increasingly cost-effective ocean bottom seismic (OBS) acquisition technology will continue to gain market share for marine seismic surveys. Arkwright´s research indicates that OBS will grow by 250% within 2019/2020.
Some of the graphics provide a clear picture of why inApril’s innovative approach to reducing costs and speeding operations, based on a high degree of automation, exactly meets the needs and preferences of the offshore E&P industry going forward. It is clear from this report that inApril can successfully challenge towed streamer solutions to multi-/wide-azimuth and other seismic surveys involving complex geology, as well as provide high quality multi-component data for reservoir characterization.
