“With the minimal of amount of equipment and rapid deployment, we are able to substantially reduce the complexity of acquiring permitting licenses, as well as decreasing permitting fees.”

Wireless Seismic, Inc., the leading innovator of real-time and cable-free seismic data acquisition systems for the oil and gas industry, announced today the sale of its RT System 2 seismic data acquisition system to West Bay Geophysical, Inc., a subsidiary of West Bay Exploration.
Headquartered in Traverse City, Michigan, West Bay will use the RT System 2 for 2D and 3D vibroseis projects in Michigan starting in early July.
“A key factor in selecting the RT System 2 for our acquisition operations is its environmental friendliness, particularly in the sensitive terrains in which we work,” stated Jim Bowser, General Manager, West Bay Geophysical. “With the minimal of amount of equipment and rapid deployment, we are able to substantially reduce the complexity of acquiring permitting licenses, as well as decreasing permitting fees.”
“Another important feature of the RT System 2 is the ability to QC the data as it is being acquired, just as with any cabled system, but without the constraints of cables,” added Bowser. “It would be very challenging for us to achieve our high standard of data quality with any other cable-free system.”
“West Bay sees the deployment of RT System 2 as a way to reduce costs and environmental impact while increasing operational efficiency,” added Roy Kligfield, CEO of Wireless Seismic. “We look forward to working with West Bay’s personnel to ensure that these benefits are realized.”
