OceanGeo completes OB cable survey off Trinidad

OceanGeo BV completed an ocean-bottom cable seismic survey in the Gulf of Paria off Trinidad for the state-owned Petroleum Co. of Trinidad and Tobago Ltd. (Petrotrin).

The work began 2 Jan 2014 and the wide-azimuth acquisition work was completed on 30 May 2014.

The survey covers about 510sq km over the shallow-water Southwest Soldado field area. The company plans to reactivate the field, which may contain 43 million bbl of proved reserves.

Petrotrin said the survey will be used to produce a significant amount of good-quality, high-resolution data. The data will be " processed to build an image of the earth below that will allow us to better identify oil and gas deposits."
