The marine geophysical services company Shearwater GeoServices has been awarded a combined 2D and 3D broadband marine seismic acquisition campaign by Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) in Eastern Offshore, India.

The contract is planned for execution in the first half of 2020, said a press note from the 50/50 joint venture between GC Rieber Shipping and Rasmussengruppen  AS.

The survey covers 1,600 sq. km of 3D and 800 km of 2D data in a deepwater area of the Bay of Bengal.

“We are very pleased to return to work with ONGC in India for a fourth consecutive season” said Irene Waage Basili, the CEO of Shearwater GeoServices. “Our track record for seismic operations offshore India is unparalleled and we look forward to executing this season’s work and strengthening that position.”
