Blue Ocean Seismic Services Background

Blue Ocean Seismic Services is an innovative tech start up with strong shareholders including BP and Woodside. Our vision is to disrupt the Marine Seismic industry through the development of a large-scale autonomous ocean bottom seismic data acquisition system, resulting in a step change reduction in the cost, time and HSSE risks required to acquire high quality OBS data. We help our clients to reduce their carbon emissions and their carbon footprint.

Blue Ocean Seismic Services is developing a revolutionary, integrated seismic acquisition system based around long endurance, self-repositioning robotic ocean bottom nodes.

These nodes are capable of multiple autonomous re-positions to allow rolling of the receiver array without having to recover and redeploy nodes.
