Premier Hires Shearwater for Tolmount Field Seismic Survey
Shearwater GeoServices, a joint venture between GC Rieber and Rasmussengruppen, has secured a contract from Premier Oil to conduct high-resolution 3D survey on the Tolmount field in the UK North Sea.
The survey is scheduled to start late Q2 2018 and will be executed by the Polar Duchess, the company informed.
The Tolmount field, located off the coast of Yorkshire, is one of the largest recent discoveries made in the Southern Gas Basin.
The survey is expected to take about one month and will provide high-resolution imaging of approximately 400 sqkm of the Tolmount field.
“This marks the return to the North Sea following last year’s active season. I’m especially pleased to see the Polar Duchess working for Premier Oil, conducting Shearwater’s first high-resolution appraisal project in the UK North Sea,” said Irene Basili, CEO of Shearwater.
Shearwater has also recently won several contracts for different oil companies in West Africa and with TGS on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.
