Shearwater GeoServices (Shearwater) has been contracted by geophysical company TGS to extend the largest 3D seismic survey in northern Europe.

The Norwegian Sea project on Atlantic Margin is expected to take three months and is scheduled to be completed by the end of September.

The survey will cover 5,135 square kilometres and will be performed by one of Shearwater’s high-end 3D vessels, utilising FlexiSource data and a wide tow spread.

Shearwater GeoServices Chief Executive Irene Waage Basili said the 2018 season will bring the total area shot by Shearwater for the Atlantic Margin project to 22,835 square kilometres.

Shearwater GeoServices is jointly owned by GC Rieber Shipping and Rasmussengruppen.
