Spectrum starts Black Sea seismic shoot
Seismic survey specialist Spectrum has begun the acquisition of offshore multi-client 2D seismic data in the eastern Turkish Black Sea.
Spectrum said in an Oslo Børs filing on Wednesday that the first phase of the new survey comprised of 7,000 kilometers of 2D data.
According to the company, the survey campaign is focused on an area identified to have significant hydrocarbon potential.
The project is carried out in partnership with geophysical services company BGP, utilizing a long offset configuration used for broadband data processing.
Spectrum added that the acquisition was expected to take three months to complete with final processed products available in the first quarter of 2019.
While the company did not specify the vessel being used for this survey, the only BGP vessel currently in the Black Sea near the Turkish coast, according to latest AIS data from June 27, is the Don Fang Kan Tan No.1.
The last time Offshore Energy Today reported on Spectrum’s activities was back in April when the company started a 6,000-kilometer 2D program over the Pernambuco-Paraiba basins along the Eastern Margins of Brazil.
