Shearwater Geoservices has announced the award of a 3D seismic survey in the Otway Basin and a 4D survey in Angola by Total.
“We see a solid, consistent level of activity in Australia where we have multiple projects booked in 2021”, said Irene Waage Basili, CEO of Shearwater. “We observe increasing regional demand for our vessels equipped with high-end technology, which is reflected in backlog and utilization.”
The approximately two-month survey is expected to commence in Q3 2021 covering an estimated 2,700 sqkm, employing the Geo Coral using a multisensor streamer system with a variable streamer spacing configuration.
Off Angola the two-month project will be on the GJDR Development area of Block 17, commencing in Q1 2021.
“As the established global market leader in 4D monitor surveys Shearwater is pleased to announce the award of this advanced multisensor project by Total in Angola,” Ms Waage Basili, said. “We have seen a notable increase in interest for 4D technology for our clients’ planned projects in 2021, which is demonstrated by the award of this project in West Africa.”
One of Shearwater’s industry leading multisensor equipped vessels will be used for the survey in conjunction with source vessels from the Shearwater fleet.
