Dolphin Group setting records offshore Myanmar

Oslo: Dolphin Group has said it has just mobilised offshore Myanmar the ‘world’s largest floating object’ by deploying a seismic spread of 12 streamers, 7,050m in length with 150mstreamer separation.

Dolphin was awarded the contract in February by Ophir Energy, and is conducting 3D data acquisition and processing of a 10,000 sq km area.

The setup has a moving width of 1,850m and the seismic spread covers a total area of around 12 sq km.

Bjarne Stavenes, vp technical of Dolphin Group, commented: “After a swift mobilisation, Dolphin’s Sanco Sword is now in steady production with acquisition of about 150 sq km in a single day. This is believed to be a world record for our industry and we expect Sword to become the benchmark vessel when it comes to productivity going forward”.
