The provider of geophysical marine seismic acquisition and processing services, Shearwater GeoServices has been given a conditional letter of award for a 2D seismic acquisition and fast-track processing project by Total E&P South Africa B.V.
The survey at block 11B-12B will be Shearwater’s first project offshore South Africa, said a press note from the Norwegean Oil and gas exploration service provider.
The multi-purpose vessel SW Cook will acquire the initial 3,650-linear km (2,268-mi) program. Starting in 4Q 2019, it has a base duration of two months.
The project includes fasttrack processing facilitated by the vessel’s high-capacity onboard computer facility and experienced processing teams linked by satellite to client and project teams.
The SW Cook has been working throughout the North Sea summer season on 3D and 4D ocean bottom projects, including as a source vessel on Total’s 2019 North Sea 4D program.
