Norwegian geophysical company Magseis has signed an exclusive technology agreement with Seismic Apparition to jointly develop and implement a new technology which could reduce operational time for ocean bottom seismic (OBS).Magseis said on Wednesday that the development of the tech, named Source Isolation, would be completed over the next nine months with commercial testing expected to begin in 2018.The company added that Source Isolation would deliver full fold, full-length isolated sources and offer the unique prospect of reservoir quality data from efficient exploration configurations.Cost reduction is one of the key drivers behind the implementation of this technology, the company noted. According to Magseis’ estimates, the cost to acquire OBS data by using Source Isolation could be reduced by 30-50 percent. The technology will be applicable both for reservoir 4D projects and more regional surveys.Johan Robertsson, CEO of Seismic Apparition, said: “We are delighted to be teaming up with Magseis for the introduction of our Source Isolation technology for OBS services. Our collaboration with Magseis, which is exclusive for OBS, is an important first step for us and we are excited about helping Magseis improve both quality and productivity at the same time.”Idar Horstad, CEO of Magseis, added: “Since Magseis was founded in 2009 we have challenged the cost of acquiring OBS data. The combination of our efficient, robust and reliable MASS technology with the Source Isolation technology from Seismic Apparition, will enable Magseis to deliver the same high quality OBS data to our customers at a significantly lower cost.”

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard is under pressure to deliver a serious Premier League title challenge after a spending spree fuelled by his desire to catch champions Liverpool. Lampard showed promise in his first season by steering the Blues into the Champions League with a fourth place domestic finish. But Arsenal exposed the flaws that were visible in Lampard’s side all season with a 2-1 win against their London rivals in the FA Cup final. Having finished 33 points behind the Reds and 15 adrift of second placed Manchester City last term, the response from the Stamford Bridge hierarchy has been emphatic. City set the record for the biggest total spend by a Premier League club when Pep Guardiola splashed out £223.8 million ($295 million) ahead of the 2017-18 season. But Chelsea are on course to shatter that mark. After enduring a transfer ban in the 2019 summer window before failing to sign a single player during the 2020 January market, owner Roman Abramovich sanctioned the kind of money-is-no-object recruitment drive that was commonplace when he first bought the club. After relying on a cadre of promising youngsters to kick-start his reign, Lampard has prioritised proven talents in the transfer market.

Lampard will hope the lavish investment reaps the same rewards for his club as City enjoyed in 2018, when they were crowned champions thanks in large part to the spending of owner Sheikh Mansour. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 He paid a combined £141 million for Leipzig striker Timo Werner, Ajax playmaker Hakim Ziyech and Leicester left-back Ben Chilwell. The west Londoners are expected to wrap up their £90 million swoop for Bayer Leverkusen forward Kai Havertz this week, which would take them past City’s record spree. Malang Sarr has also arrived on a free transfer after the 21-year-old centre-back left Nice, but he is seen as one for the future and will be sent on loan. Loading…
