MultiJack energy source is designed to supply operations of sparker and boomer sound sources that are typically used for high resolution (HR), ultra-high-resolution (UHR) marine seismic surveys and VSP.
MultiJack is a unique energy source with the fastest charging rate available on the market, which results in possibility to acquire marine seismic profiles with the highest possible trace density and lateral resolution, correspondingly.
In addition to the standard mode of operation with a single source, MultiJack energy sources can be combined in an array to implement the latest shooting technologies:
Flip-flop shooting became an industry standard acquisition technique for 3D oil and gas surveys, while still seldom used in shallow seismic projects. Our MultiJack sources support flip-flop shooting mode to improve efficiency and ready to serve seismic parties, who are on the leading edge of marine engineering seismic acquisitions.
The use of multilevel sources allows to achieve a pre-defined source directivity, with modifying the source signature shape and its spectral characteristics. The application of multilevel sources in conjunction with impulse-code sequences makes it possible to use a ghost wave as a source of useful signal.
The use of code sequences also makes it possible to work with amplitudes of generated signals that are much smaller than the source signals amplitudes in a standard seismic survey with a single generation of the signal at each shot point. At the same time, the total energy of the recorded signal is preserved without loss in data quality.
Simultaneous source (or multi-shooting) technology allows to achieve a number of significant advantages comparing to single source acquisition:
An important feature of MultiJack system while working in an array is its exceptional simplicity — all units are controlled by a single MultiJackPad remote control, which allows to set up and monitor all valuable parameters remotely. This is a unique solution on the market, which allows completely separate high voltage blocks from instrument room equipment. Acquisition with MultiJackPad is safer than ever.
MultiJack energy sources are balanced by the maximum pulse energy and charge rate so that it is guaranteed to provide standard observation steps at a typical vessel speed of 3–5 knots.
Additionally, deck winches for HV cable and streamer with slip ring can be purchased to provide fast and safe deployment and recovery of UHR marine equipment during field operations.
