Work is scheduled to commence in 3Q20 and will take approximately 60 days. The survey will be carried out in water depths of 2000 to 2600 m.
The award adds further to the backlog for Magseis Fairfield’s existing ZXPLR crew, led by the REM Saltire node handling vessel. The new award increases the crew’s backlog into 4Q20, following the two deepwater OBN programmes announced in December 2019.
“This award demonstrates our leading position in the deep water OBN market and strengthens our 2020 backlog. The work is for a repeat customer who completed a survey in the US Gulf of Mexico earlier in 2020, and we very much look forward to working for them in Mexico later his year.” said Carel Hooijkaas, Magseis Fairfield CEO.
This is the first deepwater OBN survey in Mexico following the 2013 Energy Reform.
