Speaker: Lionel Lhommet*, Kietta

Traditional marine seismic acquisition methods (streamer, OBC) have reached some inherent limitations that are difficult to overcome. Some new methods such as nodes have been recently introduced but lead to a significant cost increase in opex due to their low productivity. The new patented method presented here combines the advantages of all techniques to offer excellent quality data in a very efficient manner. The presentation describes the method’s background, its positioning compared to competing techniques, and presents the key advantages of this new concept.
Speaker Biography: Lionel Lhommet*, Kietta
Lionel Lhommet received his formal education with a Master of Sciences degree in electronics and physics at Ecole Supérieure d’Electricité in Paris, as well as legal and finance at La Sorbonne University in Paris, completed in 2006 with a MBA at INSEAD-Cedep.

He began his career in 1985 at CGG as Party Chief in Land acquisition seismic crews in Africa. In 1996 he has been appointed as Director of Petrosystems/Flagship, a subsidiary dedicated to G&G processing and interpretation. In 1999 he was appointed deputy Chief Operating Officer of Paradigm Geophysical. In 2003, he came back to CGG as R&D and Business Strategy Manager for Land and Shallow Water seismic data acquisition, and following the merger with Veritas he became head of EAME and APAC regions, managing 3200 staff with 1900 M$ annual Revenues with onshore & offshore seismic acquisition and 32 Data Processing centers. In 2010 he has been promoted to CGG Executive Committee as Director for all CGG/Sercel business worldwide.

On April 2015 Lionel resigned from the Executive Committee to join Kietta, a start-up having developed a prototype of very innovative automated offshore seismic data acquisition technology = FreeCable.
