FairfieldNodal began its first 2D transition zone project in Louisiana in 1976, utilizing its revolutionary Telseis® system. Today, FairfieldNodal designs and manufactures the industry’s most reliable true cable-free ZNodal® systems for land and marine applications. Compact, lightweight ZLand® systems require smaller recording crews, affording greater productivity and HSE performance, even in the most challenging terrain.  ZMarine® systems, also completely autonomous, go where conventional systems can’t, safely and efficiently, while capturing superior 3D data at any marine depth.

FairfieldNodal provides acquisition systems and services in some of the world’s most challenging environments. A containerized node handling system allows crews to deploy anywhere in the world by taking advantage of vessels of opportunity. Using ocean-bottom node (OBN) data acquisition technology, FairfieldNodal is able to gather data, even in areas that are remote, difficult to access, or ecologically sensitive.  FairfieldNodal’s technology is able to provide top-notch data acquisition services in deep and ultra-deep water, shallow waters and transition zones.

ZNodal processing allows for cost-effective prestack time and depth-migration services on large-scale projects by applying advanced networking and workstation clustering technology. With ZNodal licensing, the company markets and licenses non-exclusive 3D data from a continually expanding database, the industry’s premier library covering the Gulf of Mexico shelf, and a growing database in the Permian Basin.
