BGP wins Jamaica survey contract

Tullow Oil has commissioned Chinese company BGP, a subsidiary of China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC), for a seismic survey in waters off Jamaica’s southern coast.

BGP has deployed its vessel BGP Challenger for the work, which is expected to be completed in 30 days. Tullow expects it will take up to nine months to process and analyze the seismic data.

Tullow signed a production sharing agreement with the Petroleum Corporation of Jamaica in 2014 and is now undertaking the 3, 000 kilometre survey as part of the programme.
