MCG hires ‘Nordic Bahari’ for Indonesia survey
- Business & Finance
Nordic Maritime, an offshore service operator, has been awarded the contract to provide 2D seismic survey work in Bali, Indonesia by MultiClient Geophysical (MCG).
This survey is expected to start in December 2014 and will take approximately 60 days to complete.
The vessel to undertake this contract will be the S/V Nordic Bahari and the survey will consist of two parts: a regional long offset program of minimum 1753 km offshore Lombok and smaller program of minimum 1014 km offshore East Sulawesi. MCG reported that the acquisition began on the first of these two surveys.
The main imaging targets are the proven hydrocarbon-bearing Late Eocene-Miocene carbonates and coarse clastic play fairways in Lombok and Oligocene-Pliocene coarse clastics and carbonates in East Sulawesi.
In addition, the deeper sections will also be imaged to understand the underlying structures that control the deposition of various play elements. According to MCG, acquisition is expected to be completed in January 2015 with all final processed data expected to be available during the second quarter 2015. Furthermore, both surveys are strongly supported by industry funding.
Nordic Maritime’s Executive Director, Kjell Gauksheim said: “We are delighted to announce this new contract from MCG just before the end of the 2014 for our vessel, S/V Nordic Bahari. With our established track record in successfully completing similar projects, our client can be assured of our professionalism and high quality standards in servicing them. We look forward to acquiring more of such seismic surveys contracts in the coming year. ”
