Schlumberger's WesternGeco has completed a hybrid seismic acquisition survey using a newly deployed multipurpose vessel (MPV) offshore Sarawak, Malaysia for Roc Oil.
In a press statement Schlumberger said that this was the first acquisition of towed-streamer and ocean-bottom nodal seismic data with a single vessel.
The WG Vespucci MPV acquired the high-quality ocean-bottom seismic (OBS) data required around existing platform obstructions supplemented by streamer seismic data.
“Providing a hybrid OBS and streamer acquisition option with our multipurpose vessel versus a traditional OBS or towed streamer survey gave the customer a versatile and cost-effective solution to better fit their specific challenges and budget,” said Maurice Nessim, president, WesternGeco, Schlumberger. “This industry-first acquisition underscores our commitment to offering our customers innovative approaches to offshore seismic acquisition challenges.”
