Compressors for seismic exploration

Compressors for seismic exploration

Towed behind a vessel, the seismic air guns used to find oil & gas underneath the seabed are mechanical devices with metal flaps that release high-pressure air underwater. The air bubbles expand, generating seismic waves that reach the seabed. The reflections from these waves are recorded by a streamer, which then provides detailed information about the structure of the seabed and possible oil & gas fields. Seismic operators, research industries, shipyards and packagers use Sauer compressors to supply high-pressure air for air guns.
