From 15:00 To 15:30

11/07/2019 15:00 11/07/2019 15:30 OBN Seismic Technology While the rest of the marine seismic industry has struggled since the down turn in the oil service sector driven by the fall in oil price in 2014 the Ocean Bottom Node (OBN) sector has actually thrived. OBN data acquisition is projected to be a $1.5B annual business in 2019 claiming one third of all marine seismic spend.
 
Initially OBN seismic data were primarily used for production and development. With the increased focus on core assets from the oil companies, however, and the emergence of Multi-Client OBN surveys, OBN acquisition is now moving into the exploration space. The increased demand has also been supported by the industry’s ability to innovate which has driven down OBN costs thus making it more accessible.
 
BGP entered the OBN market in 2016 and in just 3 years has established itself as the world's largest OBN service provider. BGP is currently acquiring both Shell’s and Africa's largest ever OBN project which is a combined production and exploration survey covering 4000sq km offshore Nigeria. The project is demonstrating exceptional productivity in a very complex and challenging operating environment. BGP plans to maintain an OBN crew in West Africa to serve the Atlantic margin.
