China Oilfield Services Limited (COSL), an offshore oilfield service provider, has completed a 3D seismic data acquisition project in the Barents Sea. 

The company won a contract for a 3D seismic acquisition, covering a total area of over 4,000 square kilometers in the Arctic region, in May this year. COSL claimed the project was its first great order for 3D seismic operations in Arctic waters.

Following the award, the company engaged its 12-streamer seismic vessel HYSY 720, built in 2011. By August, COSL completed operations on two blocks in the Barents Sea.

On Wednesday, November 9 COSL reported that the HYSY 720 vessel, under the Geophysical and Surveying segment of the company, has now completed the project.

“The company’s HYSY 720 operation team  has completed three blocks operation in ultra-high latitude and ultra-low-temperature waters,” the Chinese company added.
