Airgun Umbilicals and Lead-In Cables
Custom-Engineered Marine Seismic Data Acquisition Cable Systems

Meet the Challenge

Geophysical technology advancements demand a greater variety of optimized seismic datasets. This requires gathering the data more effectively by increasing the streamer spreads and lengthening airgun umbilicals to 1200+ meters. Increased loads on vessel winch, systems and dynamic factors affecting the overall integrity of the umbilicals have become a critical consideration. DE REGT Marine Cables has met this challenge, developing new manufacturing techniques that reduce the overall diameter and improve the efficiency of the airgun umbilicals, by a combination of advanced materials, methodologies and hi-tech signal components. DE REGT can offer custom combinations in armouring packages that withstand the rigours of marine deployment and deliver the optimum in breaking strength. Terminations for the airgun umbilical products are designed and engineered in-house. DE REGT has dedicated facilities for terminating and testing and is certified to assemble terminations for all gun controller and recording systems.

Airgun Umbilicals and Lead-in Cables

Cables and umbilicals used for offshore hydrocarbon exploration and oceanographic research generally operate in the aggressive surface zone and are subjected to the most physically demanding conditions. Product performance and reliability is critical to efficient and economic data acquisition. DE REGT has been designing and manufacturing lead-in cables and airgun umbilicals for over 25 years and has become one of the world’s leading suppliers of these specialized products.
