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.
