Shearwater to Undertake 4D Seismic Surveys for Equinor
Shearwater GeoServices has secured an award of three 4D seismic surveys by Equinor to be conducted this summer in the North Sea and Barents Sea.
Equinor has awarded Shearwater a multi-project contract, with three surveys to be conducted in 2019 at the Kvitebjørn & Valemon, Visund and Snøhvit fields.
The first survey is scheduled to start in Q2 and the total duration for the three 2019 projects is estimated at around 3 months.
The surveys will be conducted by Shearwater’s Amazon Conqueror and SW Amundsen vessels.
“We see a clear increase in activity in the 4D market in 2019, and we are very pleased to see a leading purchaser of 4D seismic choosing Shearwater’s Isometrix technology for their 4D surveys. Shearwater has decades of innovation and crew experience in 4D and it is important to see this capability selected by established clients,” said Irene Waage Basili, the CEO of Shearwater GeoServices.
Shearwater is a joint venture between GC Rieber Shipping and RASMUSSENGRUPPEN.
