China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC) has selected Wavefield Inseis for a new 3D seismic survey offshore Libya. Due to commence in Q1 2007, the 3D marine survey is expected to take one and a half months and will be acquired by Wavefield Inseis’ M/V Geowave Commander.

Wavefield Inseis’ second offshore Libya contract win in less than one month, the survey for CNPC will cover 850 km2 and is located within block 17-4 of the Pelagian Basin, at a water depth of 200 to 400 metres.

Utilising Wavefield Inseis’ M/V Geowave Commander, CNPC will benefit from one of the world’s most modern 3D vessels. Built in 1998 and converted by Wavefield Inseis earlier this year, the vessel features eight streamers and is perfectly adapted to large scale exploration 3D surveys.

“We requested tenders from a number of companies and, after a full evaluation of the alternatives, found that Wavefield Inseis precisely met our requirements,” commented Dr. Feng Kai, assistant general manager of CNPC International - Libya Branch. Dr. Feng Kai added, “The Company offers the key strengths and expertise required to make a real contribution to CNPC’s activities and we look forward to a highly successful partnership.”
