Shearwater GeoServices said it was awarded a seismic acquisition and depth processing contract by Turkey’s state exploration and production company Türkiye Petrolleri Anonim Ortaklığı (TPAO).
The survey contract covers an area of 2200 sqkm and includes fast track processing, followed by full time and depth processing. Work will start in the second 2019 and will be conducted by the Polar Empress, the company said in a statement.
“We are very pleased to see the Polar Empress contracted by TPAO for this 14-streamer survey, following on from efficient operations elsewhere completing ahead of schedule,” said Irene Waage Basili, the CEO of Shearwater GeoServices. “Achieving operational efficiency within each project and maximizing utilisation over a program of projects is key to our results.”
Polar Empress is a high-capacity 3D streamer vessel, part of the company’s 16-ship fleet. Shearwater owns and operates this fleet of purpose built seismic vessels designed for safe and efficient seismic acquisition using towed streamers, ocean bottom nodes (OBN) and ocean bottom cables (OBC).
