The campaign, planned to start in 4Q 2019, covers new 4D acquisition over the Pluto, Brunello, Laverda, Cimatti, and Vincent fields with an option for one additional field, Shearwater said on Monday.

The 4D seismic campaign will improve Woodside’s understanding of the fields’ production performance over time and provide data to guide future field developments.

The campaign will be executed using the Amazon Conqueror, one of the world’s most advanced seismic vessels. It is equipped with Isometrix, a multi-component multi-sensor seismic streamer system.

This is the second 4D seismic campaign award by Woodside to Shearwater following the baseline 4D program in Senegal earlier this year. The contract in Senegal covered the Sangomar, Sangomar Deep and Rufisque Offshore blocks, which contain the SNE discovery.

The high density and multi-azimuth survey was scheduled to start in 3Q 2019 and it was acquired by the Polar Marquis using 14 streamers, and FlexiSource triple source.

Recenty, while the Polar Marquis vessel was located offshore Senegal, a fire broke out in its engine room. The fire was put out and there were no injuries.
