EXI takes delivery of first Scorpion P-wave Sparker Source in the USA

Exploration Instruments was pleased to showcase the new Scorpion P-wave Borehole Sparker Seismic Source

from Trident Research at SAGEEP 2017 in Denver. It seemed everyone attending wanted to see the sparker do its thing by firing into a container of water at the booth.

This highly portable P-wave impulsive sound source can produce upwards of 50 times more energy than conventional sound sources, making it possible to conduct shallow seismic surveys across distances up to 25 times greater than traditional surveys.  More distance means less drilling cost (and time!) and quicker surveys. EXI has now taken delivery of the first production model available in the USA in the Austin office and offers it for immediate rental.
