SeaBird Vessels Start Gigante Shoot

Oslo-listed, SeaBird, informed that all permits related to the Gigante survey for TGS Nopec have been granted and SeaBird has now kicked off the seismic campaign.

SeaBird announced the Letter of Award in November 2014. In May this year, TGS was granted seismic permit to acquire 181,500 km regional 2D seismic in Mexico, and said it will utilize four Seabird vessels to acquire an extensive regional grid of 2D multi-client seismic with 12,000 km offsets.

According to SeaBird, the vessels Osprey Explorer and Hawk Explorer have begun the acquisition while Northern Explorer is currently mobilizing to Mexico.

As earlier announced, Gigante will cover the offshore sector of Mexico, including the Perdido fold belt and Campeche Bay, and line ties will be made in to the US Gulf of Mexico regional grids previously acquired by TGS.

Data processing will be performed by TGS with initial fast-track data available in Q3 2015. According to TGS, Gigante should also include gravity and magnetic data with a regional seismic structural interpretation.

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
