OSLO: GC Rieber Shipping ASA’s 20% owned geoservices company Shearwater GeoServices has been awarded Letters of Intent for three Isometrix 4D towed streamer projects by Equinor, and a 4D Qseabed Ocean Bottom Seismic (OBS) project by Lundin Norway for the 2020 North Sea summer season.
The 4D OBS project for Lundin Norway covers the Edvard Grieg field in Norway and is effectively the second repeat survey. Data acquisition will be executed by the SW Cook and SW Tasman with Qseabed crews who have worked continuously on OBS projects in the North Sea throughout the 2019 summer season. The two-month project is scheduled to start in Q2 2020 (4 vessel months).
The SW Amundsen equipped with Isometrix multi-sensor technology will be the lead vessel for the Equinor projects. The 4D surveys will be conducted at Norway’s Sleipner West and Norne fields, and for the Sleipner CO2 storage project. The total volume of work for Equinor is approximately 4 vessel months.
