Shearwater GeoServices announced on Tuesday it has been awarded a master services agreement by Lundin Norway, and new Isometrix seismic acquisition projects for Lundin and Spirit Energy Norway in the Barents Sea, off the coast of Norway.

Both projects are Flexisource quad-source Isometrix projects with 50-meter streamer separation which will deliver a true 3D deghosted high-resolution Isogrid dataset. The marine acquisition surveys will be carried out by the Amazon Conqueror, starting in the third quarter of 2019. The Lundin award is under the new multi-year master services agreement and covers approximately 180 square kilometers at license PL965. The project for Spirit Energy covers 130 square kilometers and is at license block PL962.

“In addition to the unique Isometrix streamer technology, we have redesigned the source configuration down to a very small point source of only 1 meter by 3 meters. Combined with wide tow and four of the small focused sources, we believe we will obtain a super-high resolution image with almost zero-offsets as well as give us accurate amplitude versus offset measurements for reservoir property prediction,” said Per Eivind Dhelie, Senior Geophysicist in Lundin.

“This novel hybrid acquisition setup, which combines elements from 3D marine and site-survey operations will deliver a very high-resolution dataset that we believe will enable high fidelity imaging of our target,” said Mark Ackers, Senior Geophysicist in Spirit Energy.

“The combination of our Amazon class vessel and Isometrix multi-sensor technology gives our clients access to the industry’s most technologically advanced and efficient platform for marine seismic acquisition,” said Irene Waage Basili, the CEO of Shearwater GeoServices.
