WATCH: Turkey Strengthens Seismic Fleet

Turkey’s second seismic research vessel, the MTA Oruc Reis, has been delivered to General Directorate of Mineral Research and Exploration.

The vessel joins Turkish Petroleum Corporation (TPAO)’s 8-streamer seismic vessel Barbaros Hayreddin Pasa, which was acquired from Polarcus in 2013.

Built by Istanbul Shipyard, for a working lifespan of 30 years, the MTA Oruc Reis is designed to perform 2D/3D seismic research and sampling for hydrograpghic, hydroacustic, geologic studies. The 86 meters long and 22 meters wide vessel is fitted with 4×4 streamer systems, with system infrastructure ready for 8×8.

The vessel is equipped with one remote operated vehicle (ROV) for oceanographic sampling and measuring. It can accommodate up to 55 personnel and stay at sea for 35 days.
