GTI Announces a Long-Term Lease Agreement with Sinopec Geophysical Corporation
Geophysical Technology Inc. (“GTI”) announces that it has signed a long-term lease agreement with Sinopec Geophysical Corporation for the lease of their NuSeisTM recording system, comprised of NRU 1CTM nodes and all ancillary equipment. The project started in January 2018 and is scheduled to complete in Q3 2018. The seismic survey is located in the harsh jungles of northern Myanmar.
Richard Degner, President and CEO of GTI said, “GTI is very pleased with Sinopec’s choice to use our transformational NuSeis technology on their regional seismic project in Myanmar. This remote project is located in a treacherous environment that is logistically intensive. The NuSeis technology is enabling our customer to achieve higher quality data with materially less manpower, a lower environmental footprint and lower operational risk. GTI is committed to providing technology and service that enables our customers to acquire better subsurface images at lower operating costs, enabling the return to a healthy, prosperous geophysical industry with improved performance for E&P customers.”
Zhou Tong, Director of International Department of Sinopec Geophysical said, “We are very glad to use NuSeis technology in Myanmar. The NRU 1C is less than two pounds per node, which made our operation much easier, and NRU’s good earth coupling helped us to get good data quality. ”
The revolutionary NuSeis NRU 1C provides a step change improvement to both quality and seismic crew productivity in any environment, especially evident in the most challenging locations on the planet such as the mountainous jungles of Myanmar. The NRU mechanical package is a durable, water-tight Lexan and stainless-steel assembly that ensures no moisture will enter the unit, while providing high reliability when subjected to harsh operating conditions. The NuSeis nodes are deployed in a matter of seconds with perfect ground coupling (“earth grip”), ensuring that seismic jobs are completed with the highest data quality and maximum operational efficiency. Recent projects have been completed with data losses less than ¼ of one percent compared to competitive systems that can exceed three percent.
