  • Shearwater has developed a unique source capability, with two triple source equipped vessels. These two vessels can deploy three large (>5000cu in) sources with wide separation to enable simultaneous shooting of source lines during Ocean Bottom Surveys (OBS). 

    What previously required three vessels, can now be acquired using two source vessels.  This is ideal for the deployment in large scale, deep-water acquisition, or for high efficiency shallow-water surveys.

    Wide Towed Multisource

    In addition to the 3x3 source, other wide tow multisource configurations are available. The nine sub-arrays can be towed with a total separation of up to 300m, which complements both OBS and towed streamer acquisition.
