Sercel is pleased to expand its UNITE cable-free acquisition market share with the sale of a system to United Oilfield Services (UOS), the 18th client to purchase UNITE so far. United Oilfield Services is an oilfield services company, headquartered in Poland, focused on providing critical hydraulic fracturing, modern drilling, and seismic data acquisition services to the European oil and gas industries.
With advanced features such as wireless system status and data harvesting, UNITE offers UOS an unprecedented level of flexibility and quality control in the most challenging onshore environments, including urban areas. This purchase follows an extremely successful pilot operation with UNITE using an airplane to QC the spread.
The order for 6,000 UNITE channels as well as Sercel SG-10 geophone strings marks the first purchase of geophysical equipment by UOS since it joined the industry. UOS have also purchased five Sercel NOMAD 65 vibrators equipped with VE464 controllers and plan to deploy their first vibrator fleet in February 2012.
Stanistaw Zon, Country Manager, United Oilfield Services, said: “We chose UNITE because it is the most advanced system capable of combining its ease-of-use when operating in autonomous mode with the advanced features of remote data harvesting. We are confident that this system will aid us in our quest to become the market-leading oilfield service company in Poland.”
Pascal Rouiller, CEO, Sercel, said: “We are delighted that Sercel’s state-of-the-art equipment has been selected by United Oilfield Services to equip its first seismic crew. UNITE’s flexibility of layout, improved quality control and operational follow-up capabilities will ensure UOS achieves seismic survey success even in city centers.”
