Shearwater to shoot seismic for Repsol off Malaysia

Marine seismic acquisition company Shearwater GeoServices has will carry out a hybrid node and towed streamer seismic survey by Repsol offshore Malaysia.

Shearwater said Wednesday that the survey would start in the first quarter of 2020 and would take two months to complete.

The project covers approximately 1,000 sq. km of ocean bottom and towed streamer seismic on Repsol’s operated block offshore Peninsular Malaysia, Shearwater said.

The Multi-Purpose Vessel (MPV) SW Vespucci will acquire the seismic using Flexisource triple source in combination with Qmarine towed streamer and ocean bottom nodes, the company explained.

“By combining ocean bottom and towed streamer seismic using an MPV we offer our customer an innovative and efficient hybrid solution for the acquisition of high-quality seismic data at a field which already has numerous oil installations,” said Irene Waage Basili, the CEO of Shearwater.

“This is the second contract awarded to us in recent weeks in Southeast Asia and confirms our position in the region and the value we offer to our clients. Our strategy, to have a fleet with flexibility and critical mass, enables back-to-back operations for SW Vespucci in the region, maximizing vessel utilization, minimizing global transit cost and lowering emissions,” Irene Waage Basili said.

As reported on Tuesday, India’s ONGC hired Shearwater for a combined 2D and 3D broadband marine seismic acquisition campaign by ONGC in Eastern Offshore, India. More on that here.
