Equinor has recently granted letters of intent for three Isometrix 4D towed streamer projects to Shearwater GeoServices. This included a 4D seabed ocean bottom seismic (OBS) project to be carried out by Lundin Norway, in preparation of the 2020 North Sea summer season.
Lundin Norway’s project for the 4D OBS encompasses the Edvard Greig field in Norway and all data attainment is to be performed by survey vessels, SW Cook and SW Tasman. The second quarter of 2020 is the scheduled starting point for the 2-month project.
The research vessel, SW Amundsen will be installed by Shearwater for the Equinor projects. The 4D surveys, which plan to take around four months, will be carried out at Norway’s Sleipner West and Norne fields.
Shearwater has recently finished the takeover of five seismic vessels from CGG, who have since left the marine acquisition business.
