Offshore seismic specialist Shearwater GeoServices has been awarded two new projects in the Arabian Sea.
Eni Oman in partnership with Oman Oil Company Exploration and Production has awarded the company a seismic survey in Block 52, offshore Oman. Polar Empress will commence the project later this year, and is expected to take three months.
Additionally, India’s Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Limited (ONGC) has awarded Shearwater a 3D broadband marine seismic acquisition contract. The main streamer vessel will be mobilised before the end of the year and the survey is expected to take five months to complete.
Irene Waage Basili, CEO of Shearwater, commented: “We are proud to win these awards which represent repeat business for Shearwater, and a further deepening of our client relationships. This will be the third consecutive year that Shearwater will work for ONGC, and second for Eni. Together with the recent expansion of our fleet and technology offerings, we welcome this strong backlog which occupies our legacy Shearwater fleet through the winter season and into Q2 2019”.
