Shearwater GeoServices Holding AS announced the award of four Ocean Bottom Seismic surveys by Aker BP ASA and Equinor ASA. The projects will be executed by two of Shearwater’s multi-purpose vessels using proprietary technology during the 2019 North Sea summer season. Irene Waage Basili, the CEO of Shearwater GeoServices, said that “We are excited to be chosen by two major petroleum exploration and production companies to execute these surveys and leverage our proprietary OBS acquisition system, state-of-the-art vessels and experienced crews.”

Aker BP has awarded Shearwater a multi-year OBS contract, with the first three surveys to be conducted in 2019 at the Frosk, Ivar Aasen and Valhall fields. The first survey is scheduled to start in Q2 and the total duration for the three 2019 projects is estimated at around 4 months.

Equinor has awarded Shearwater an OBS survey over the Gullfaks field in Norway, with start-up in Q3 and an estimated duration of 1 month.

Irene Waage Basili said that “These awards secure backlog for the full North Sea summer season for two of our OBS vessel platforms and cementing our strong position in the OBS market. We are pleased to see strategically important customers acknowledge this position by awarding additional projects for follow-on seasons.”
