Shearwater GeoServices Holding AS has announced two transactions to take over marine seismic acquisition assets previously owned by Polarcus, from Tiger Moth AS, a company affiliated with Woodstreet Inc.

Shearwater has acquired streamers and related seismic equipment for a total cash consideration of US$50 million. The company further purchased six seismic acquisition vessels for a total consideration of US$127.5 million.

The transactions are financed through a new vessel loan facility provided by DNB and GIEK of US$107.5 million and a convertible loan from RASMUSSENGRUPPEN AS in the amount of US$85 million. US$15 million of the convertible loan is available for general corporate purposes.

“These investments allow us to significantly extend the commercial life of our fleet and streamer pool and to accelerate our fleet renewal program to meet regulatory and public expectations facing our industry. By extending the runway of our asset base and maintaining our scale, we are proactively strengthening Shearwater’s position to invest in new technologies and the growing seabed market,” said Irene Waage Basili, the CEO of Shearwater.
