Lone Star Buys Cable-free Seismic System

Press Release
Monday, January 21, 2013

Lone Star Geophysical Surveys buys a 4000-node ZLand seismic system from FairfieldNodal for US & Canada projects.

The company previously leased ZLand system nodes for environmentally sensitive work in Kansas, Nebraska, Colorado and Montana, and made their purchase decision based on the results they achieved there.

“We have put these nodes to the test in some very challenging environments and been very impressed, both in terms of system performance and the HSE advantages they provide,” said Lone Star Geophysical Survey’s CEO and President Heath Harris. “We have tried many other similar systems, and found ZLand to be the clear choice for us.”

Keith Matthews, FairfieldNodal’s systems sales director, is pleased with the endorsement. “We can talk all day long about having the best and only true cable-free seismic system out there, but when an important independent contractor like Lone Star Geophysical Surveys says it, that certainly holds more weight,” he said.

Gary Bartlett, the regional sales manager for FairfieldNodal added, “We know that Heath takes his HSE responsibilities very seriously, and our ZLand system allows his crews to safely work faster and get quality data with very minimal environmental impact.”

FairfieldNodal ZLand systems have been proven in a wide range of environments, including busy urban areas and rugged terrains as well as in extreme climates, from deserts to the Arctic.

Privately held FairfieldNodal is headquartered in Sugar Land, Texas, and offers a full spectrum of true cable-free nodal seismic products and services, from systems design, manufacturing and sales to acquisition, processing and multi-client licensing.
