Norway's Dolphin Geophysical announced that the high-capacity 3D seismic vessel, Polar Marquis, has a new contract with GC Rieber Shipping for 3.5 years with 2+2 years options.

The vessel has just completed a significant seismic and propulsion upgrade, with a redundant and flexible engine package of 17,400kW and more than 200 tons bollard pull. Polar Marquis can now operate 16 streamers with 100m separation. This will put the vessel among the top ten seismic vessels in the world.

Polar Marquis is mobilizing for her first contract survey in the Black Sea utilizing a record spread of 14 seismic cables with 100m separation, followed by an additional contract in East Africa.
