Marine geophysical services provider Shearwater GeoServices has been awarded a combined 3D and 2D seismic survey in Southeast Asia for the SW Vespucci multi-purpose vessel (MPV).

The contract covers an area of 1,600 square kilometers for 3D seismic with associated 2D work to be executed over a 1.5-month period from end Q3 2019.

According to the company, the SW Vespucci is a highly flexible seismic vessel able to effectively conduct source, 2D, 3D, and ocean bottom nodal seismic acquisition, thereby maximizing vessel utilization and minimizing transit times.

“The MPV platform is ideally suited for clients with diverse project requirements,” said Irene Waage Basili, the CEO of Shearwater GeoServices.

“It has allowed us to build a unique position in Southeast Asia and the award to SW Vespucci is a further confirmation of the strong value we offer to clients in the region.”
