With its X-Tech® cross-technology architecture, the 508XT enhances overall productivity by guaranteeing non-stop operations and fast data delivery. When combined with the Smart LF software that significantly reduces low-frequency vibrator-induced distortion, the system delivers the cleanest seismic data available in the market. In addition, Sercel’s Auto-Guidance solution ensures faster and more accurate vibroseis operations.

Sinopec has been using 508XT systems since 2019. Based on the system’s ability to conduct large-scale surveys with no compromise on productivity, reliability and data quality, the company has affirmed its trust in Sercel’s state-of-the art equipment year after year.

Emmanuelle Dubu, Sercel CEO, said, “We are very pleased that Sinopec has once again selected the 508XT system for this new 3D survey and it is rewarding to see our solutions being more widely deployed across China.”
