Shearwater to Start 3D Acquisition in North Africa
Shearwater has signed a one month contract with an undisclosed client for a 3D marine acquisition survey offshore North Africa.
The contract will start promptly and will be performed by Polar Marquis while en-route from India to the North Sea.
“In combination with the successfully completed ONGC contract and the recently awarded TGS Crean contract, this award ensures continuous employment for the Polar Marquis from December 2016 through to the end of the 3rd quarter 2017,” said Shearwater’s COO Peter Hooper.
Polar Marquis, 119 meters long and 22 meters wide, is a high capacity 3D seismic vessel, capable of deploying 16 streamers.
