The survey for the multi-client company will take place for approximately two months starting in Q3 2021 and will deploy the Z700 technology.

Magseis Fairfield has a right of first offer to provide OBN acquisition services to the multi-client company with respect to future surveys undertaken by them in 2022 that adjoin this 2021 survey, subject to certain conditions, the company said.

“I am very pleased that the close collaboration with the repeat client has resulted in this award. This award provides the additional utilization we were targeting for the Z700 technology in Q3 this year”, said Carel Hooijkaas, CEO at Magseis Fairfield.

Since the beginning of this year, Magseis Fairfield secured and delivered numerous OBN survey projects.

In January, the company delivered the first-ever deep-water OBN survey acquired in Mexico. Shortly after, Magseis Fairfield won a 4D OBN survey in the Norwegian North Sea for an undisclosed E&P company.

At the beginning of April, the company was awarded an OBN survey in the Gulf of Mexico for a multi-client company and in May, it added a Norwegian 4D OBN survey to its to-do list.

Recently, Magseis Fairfield completed the acquisition of its 100th OBN survey, performing it as the first carbon-neutral seismic survey.

The OBN survey for BP over various assets in the US Gulf of Mexico was announced in December last year and used Magseis Fairfield’s ZXPLR node technology.
