Seabed Geosolutions has been awarded a 3D ocean bottom node (OBN) survey in a challenging area of the Gulf of Mexico by a major energy company.
Covering 270 km2 and in water depths up to 2100 m, the survey will commence in 3Q19 and take approximately 4 months to complete. It will be executed with ocean bottom nodes deployed by remotely operated vehicles and simultaneous source acquisition, with an imaging target that lies beneath a challenging overburden, including complex, overhanging salt bodies.
Stephan Midenet, CEO of Seabed Geosolutions commented: “This latest award illustrates the trust operators place in our expertise in providing the highest quality seismic data in the most complex geologic regions of the Gulf of Mexico, where we have built a track record of successful deliveries on difficult acquisitions. We look forward to safely and reliably facilitating the further development of reserves for our customer.”
The award was already included in Fugro’s backlog at year-end 2018.
