Shearwater GeoServices has been awarded four ocean bottom seismic (OBS) surveys by Aker BP and Equinor.

The projects will be executed by two of Shearwater’s multi-purpose vessels using proprietary technology during the 2019 North Sea summer season.

Aker BP has awarded Shearwater a multi-year OBS contract, with the first three surveys to be conducted in 2019 at the Frosk, Ivar Aasen, and Valhall fields.

The first survey is scheduled to start in the second quarter and the total duration for the three 2019 projects is estimated at around four months.

Meanwhile, Equinor has awarded Shearwater an OBS survey over the Gullfaks field in Norway, with start-up in the third quarter and an estimated duration of one month.

The company will utilise the multi-purpose vessels WG Tasman (pictured) and WG Cook on the surveys.
