Seabed Geosolutions to conduct 4D seismic surveys in Gulf of Mexico

Seabed Geosolutions, a joint venture between Fugro and CGG, has been awarded a series of 4D ocean bottom node (OBN) seismic monitoring surveys over multiple oil and gas fields in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico.

Fugro said on Thursday that the surveys ordered by an unnamed client, with a duration of around two months subject to the final scope of work, would begin in the third quarter of 2018.

Stephan Midenet, CEO of Seabed Geosolutions, said: “With this recent award, we believe we have secured solid backlog for the CASE Abyss crew and the Hugin Explorer vessel while enabling us to work for a world-class customer and placing our assets in a geographic market with substantial contracting opportunities.

“We are excited to be collaborating with this industry-leading customer for the first time in the Gulf of Mexico and look forward to a successful project.”

The last time Offshore Energy Today reported on a contract win by Seabed Geosolutions was in April when the company received a contract award for an ocean bottom seismic project in the Middle East.

Seabed Geosolutions is 60% owned by Fugro while the remaining 40% is owned by French geophysical services company CGG.
