Title (EN) SEISMIC SURVEYING WITH STEERABLE PROPULSION DEVICES SECURED TO SEISMIC CABLE
(FR) PROSPECTION SISMIQUE A L'AIDE DE DISPOSITIFS DE PROPULSION ORIENTABLES FIXES A UN CABLE SISMIQUE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A method of seismic surveying comprises deploying at least one seismic cable from a seismic survey vessel onto the seabed. To accurately position the cable at a desired location on the seabed, the cable is provided with steerable propulsion devices, which are attached to it at 300 metre intervals along its length, and which are powered and controlled via the cable.
(FR)L'invention concerne un procédé de prospection sismique comportant les étapes consistant à déployer au moins une flûte sismique à partir d'un navire de prospection sismique sur le fond marin. Le câble est équipé, pour assurer son positionnement précis à un emplacement voulu sur le fond marin, de dispositifs de propulsion orientables fixés à celui-ci à des intervalles de 300 mètres, et qui sont alimentés et commandés par l'intermédiaire du câble.
