Offshore survey specialist Shearwater GeoServices has been awarded a major exploration survey in Brazil by TGS, the provider of multi-client geoscience data to oil and gas exploration and production companies worldwide.
The project will be executed by the Amazon Warrior using proprietary Q technology starting in Q1 2019, said the marine geophysical services company.
“Shearwater and TGS have a long-established relationship and we are very pleased to develop this partnership further. Shearwater’s Amazon Warrior is equipped with industry leading single sensor Qmarine technology and will provide TGS and their clients with a powerful and effective platform for the survey, ideally suited to environmental conditions offshore Brazil”, said Irene Waage Basili, the CEO of Shearwater GeoServices.
“TGS is pleased to continue the good cooperation with Shearwater. The use of their Qmarine technology, combined with TGS processing, will ensure the highest quality of data being delivered to our customers,” states Kristian Johansen, CEO of TGS.
The 11,200 km2 survey is expected to last approximately 8 months including transits.
The Amazon Warrior has a unique vessel design created, in its entirety, for the purpose of high-capacity seismic acquisition. The vessel is one of two Amazon class vessels in Shearwater’s fleet, designed from scratch to deliver a safe, efficient, and stable performance during all seismic operations.
The vessel is equipped for world-wide operations ranging from harsh artic environments, to South Atlantic conditions where the stable vessel design enables low noise data to be acquired through an extended operational window.
