Seismic Reflections: 2023-2024

As 2023 draws to a close, we have asked four STRYDE team members to share their reflections on the year as well as their predictions for STYRDE and the world of seismic in 2024...


Mike Popham, CEO

“In November, we reached a new milestone, passing 685,000 STRYDE Nodes™ delivered to clients across the globe. This is testament to our incredible team and the lengths they have gone to in order to make 2023 successful for STRYDE and our customers.

"We expect the one millionth STRYDE Node™ to come off the production lines in early 2024, which will be an incredible accomplishment in itself, and I am excited to see what we can achieve together beyond this over the next 12 months."


Einar Holst, Chief Operations Officer

"I am very proud of our technical field support team, as every person within the team goes out of their way to ensure that all customers succeed in using our system. They support remotely, train clients at STRYDE locations and travel around the world to help every single one of our customers - and they do all of this with respect, a high level of professionality and a strong focus on HSSE.

"As seismic acquisition and nodal technology expands its reach to new sectors and becomes more in demand, we are in a strong position to serve all markets with the seismic equipment they need, as well as the technical expertise to ensure they succeed."


Tom O’Toole, Product Manager

"There are some signs that full waveform inversion (FWI) is starting to become a more “common” land processing deliverable. While improvements to processing algorithms and data-centre hardware help make this possible, surveys need to be designed with FWI in mind.

“This could mean denser designs, more sweep tests at project start-up, and the need for rapid in-field processing to evaluate optimal sweep parameters to take into production.”


Celina Giersz, Senior Processing Geophysicist

"Nodal systems enable enormous diversity in survey design. We see many new design concepts emerging to obtain better spatial sampling, which benefits the subsurface imaging in all types of environments - from harsh desert conditions to mountains that are difficult to access for heavy machinery, challenging environments from an environmental and HSE perspective (such as forests and jungles), and in densely populated urban areas.
