SUSTAINABILITY & CARBON FOOTPRINT
At Acoustic Data, we take our responsibility to the Planet seriously and our Green philosophy is proudly applied from manufacture through to deployment in order to reduce our use of single-use plastics and CO2 footprint.
We start with simple measures such as requesting our suppliers to wrap our inwards parts in biodegradable waxed paper, and similarly we have a no single use plastics packaging philosophy; our outbound packages being made of wood and cardboard.
Our equipment is designed to be produced in an environmentally efficient manner, with as little machining and waste as possible. This approach synergistically results in a low cost of manufacture and robust designs. The flow on is our ability to introduce efficient, accurate, low cost instrumentation to optimise economic production of the wells deployed in, a less environmentally disturbing approach than drilling new wells.
Our SonicGauge™ equipment is ultra-energy efficient and can be deployed over very long periods in wells without intervention, our battery power solutions being extremely small in comparison with our competitors, producing several years of performance from just 4 C cells. Similarly, our Barracuda™ ElectroSET™ is powered by a small stack of rechargeable C cells. Less cells, less waste coupled with responsible disposal yielding less pollution.
With rising CO2 levels in our atmosphere we are doing our bit to provide a low CO2 footprint solution for subsurface data acquisition. Our SonicGauge™ is a compact, light weight and simple system that can be hand carried to wellsite and then hand deployed in the well. This results in less transport fuel burden, no dedicated trucks and cranes, less transport personnel and storage overhead—a very low carbon footprint from workshop to wellbore.
