Fugro owned Seabed Geosolutions has been awarded a series of 4D ocean bottom node (OBN) seismic monitoring surveys in oil and gas fields in the US Gulf of Mexico.
The surveys will take around two months and start later this year. The data collected will be used for detailed reservoir characterisation, monitoring of the impact of production and detection of potential geohazards.
Seabed Geosolutions CEO Stephan Midenet said: “With this recent award, we believe we have secured solid backlog for the Case Abyss crew and the Hugin Explorer vessel, while enabling us to work for a world class customer and placing our assets in a geographic market with substantial contracting opportunities.
“We are excited to be collaborating with this industry-leading customer for the first time in the Gulf of Mexico and look forward to a successful project.
Seabed Geosolutions is 60% owned by Fugro, with the remaining 40% is owned by CGG.
