Shearwater GeoServices awarded survey work by ONGC

Shearwater GeoServices, the seismic joint venture between GC Rieber Shipping and Rasmussengruppen, has been awarded a 3D broadband marine seismic acquisition contract by India’s ONGC.

The surveys are expected to take around five months, and the main streamer vessel will be mobilised to the region before the end of the year.

Irene Waage Basili, CEO of Shearwater, commented: “This is the second consecutive year Shearwater will work for ONGC. A pleased customer is a repeat customer and we see this award as a testament of the quality of the deliverables from the Shearwater organization. We know the operational area well and in the challenging market we are all experiencing today, we are very pleased to have secured this contract which gives us full utilization for one of our vessels through the winter season.”

Shearwater GeoServices was formed in December 2016 and has a fleet of four seismic vessels.
