Contract awarded for 4D ocean bottom node survey

September 8th, 2019, Published in Articles: PositionIT

Seabed Geosolutions has been awarded a 4D ocean bottom node (OBN) monitor survey in West Africa for a major oil company. The project, for which the data is expected to be acquired over a two-month period during the third quarter of 2019, will cover 151 km2 in water depths up to 600 m. The ocean bottom nodes will be deployed by remotely operated vehicles. The survey contract is for repeat customer, and helps create a better understanding of the development of their reservoir. It will secure backlog continuity for the company’s Case Abyss crew and the Hugin Explorer vessel. Seabed Geosolutions is a joint venture between Fugro and CGG. It collects geophysical data on the seabed through an array of imaging technologies for oil and gas companies, focused on the development and production phases of their fields. Seabed Geosolutions acquired the speciliased ocean bottom seismic vessel, the R.V. Hugin Explorer, from Siem AS in Norway on 1 July 2019, at the end of the firm period of a long-term bareboat charter. The vessel, which has been part of Seabed’s fleet since its creation, is a proven ocean bottom seismic vessel with dual ROV node deployment and source vessel capabilities – the only hybrid vessel in the ocean bottom node market.
