Covering 270 square kilometres and in water depths up to 2,100 metres, the survey will commence in the third quarter of 2019 and take approximately four 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.
