Saudi Aramco has outlined some recent technical achievements in its 2017 annual report.

In the Red Sea, using an autonomous system that deployed seismic nodes on the seabed via reinforced armored rope, the company cut the costs of 3D seismic data acquisition over two blocks, measuring respectively 800 sq km (309 sq mi) and 900 sq km (347 sq mi).

The choice of locations for the 3D seismic survey was based on results from a large-scale hydrographic survey, a first for these waters, the company said.
