Shearwater GeoServices Holding AS has been awarded a master services agreement by Lundin Norway AS and new Isometrix seismic acquisition projects for Lundin and Spirit Energy Norway AS in the Barents Sea, Norway.

Both projects are Flexisource quad-source Isometrix projects with 50 m streamer separation which will deliver a true 3D deghosted high-resolution Isogrid dataset. The marine acquisition surveys will be carried out by the Amazon Conqueror, starting in 3Q19. The Lundin award is under the new multi-year master services agreement and covers approximately 180 km2 at license PL965. The project for Spirit Energy covers 130 km2 and is at license block PL962.

“In addition to the unique Isometrix streamer technology, we have redesigned the source configuration down to a very small point source of only 1 m by 3 m. Combined with wide tow and four of the small focused sources, we believe we will obtain a super-high resolution image with almost zero-offsets as well as give us accurate amplitude versus offset measurements for reservoir property prediction”, commented Per Eivind Dhelie, Senior Geophysicist in Lundin.

“This novel hybrid acquisition setup, which combines elements from 3D marine and site-survey operations will deliver a very high-resolution dataset that we believe will enable high fidelity imaging of our target”, commented Mark Ackers, Senior Geophysicist in Spirit Energy.

“The combination of our Amazon class vessel and Isometrix multi-sensor technology gives our clients access to the industry’s most technologically advanced and efficient platform for marine seismic acquisition,” said Irene Waage Basili, the CEO of Shearwater GeoServices. “We are truly excited by Lundin and Spirit Energy choosing our Isometrix technology and the Amazon Conqueror for their surveys.”
