In 2003, we set the standard for OBN acquisition. We’ve been raising it ever since.

When Magseis Fairfield developed the industry’s first deepwater node, it was building on more than 40 years of marine acquisition experience. Since then, we’ve refined this revolutionary technology to push the limits towards increasingly greater quality, safety and efficiency.

Any environment. Any depth. Any challenge.

Our suite of proprietary MASS and ZNodal acquisition technologies, which are fully modular, can be deployed by rope, cable and ROV in water depths from 0-4,000 meters in all environments. That includes in and around dense infrastructure and in sensitive environmental and transition zones. With automated node handling, deployment and retrieval systems, operations are safer than ever.

Today, Magseis Fairfield has the largest node inventory in the world. As our technology continues to advance, you benefit from the world’s greatest survey flexibility — higher quality data acquired faster and more cost-effectively.

Strong Track record

Over 15 years, Magseis Fairfield has completed 90+ OBN acquisition surveys, with more than 900,000 unique deployments. Our operations have spanned the globe, from the Barents Sea, the North Sea, the South China Sea and the Red Sea to offshore Brazil, North Africa and the Gulf of Mexico.

Through it all, we’ve kept customer satisfaction high. Many of our surveys are for repeat customers and renewed contracts. Our reputation has attracted new customers as well, including IOCs, NOCs and independents.


With a range of fully modular OBN systems, you’ll have quality 4C data for critical decision-making.
