CGG announced that Sercel has launched GeoTag, the acoustic positioning solution of choice for seabed seismic acquisition. GeoTag can be used to accurately position all types of Ocean Bottom Cable (OBC), Ocean Bottom Node and Transition Zone cable systems for seabed seismic surveys in water depths down to 500 meters.
The highly flexible and reliable GeoTag solution operates with the smallest acoustic positioning transponder available on the market. The transponders are attached to the seabed seismic equipment and interrogated by a vessel-based transceiver. GeoTag’s unique design allows for rapid maintenance such as battery replacement for improved crew efficiency. The transponders can also be stored on a reel and deployed mechanically when used with OBC systems, for seamless and cost-effective operations.
