The company plans to carry out the survey with its ZXPLR technology, currently in use for ongoing projects in the same geographical area.

Mid-December last year, Magseis Fairfield booked a three-month project in the US GoM, which started in Q1 2021.

The Oslo-listed company expects the new survey campaign to kick off in mid-Q2 2021, and run for approximately two months.

Carel Hooijkaas, CEO in Magseis Fairfield, said:

“We are glad to see our customers recognising the value we bring, and award us repeat business. This contract represents an important addition to our overall backlog, and specifically extends our backlog for the ZXPLR crew in the region.”
