Schlumberger informed that WesternGeco has completed a hybrid seismic acquisition survey using their newly deployed multipurpose vessel (MPV) WG Vespucci.

The 340 km2 3D seismic survey was acquired offshore Sarawak, Malaysia, for Roc Oil using a triple source array with simultaneous recording by ocean-bottom nodes and a towed-streamer spread, all from a single seismic vessel, the company said.

The WG Vespucci MPV acquired the ocean-bottom seismic (OBS) data required around existing platform obstructions supplemented by streamer seismic data.

“Providing a hybrid OBS and streamer acquisition option with our multipurpose vessel versus a traditional OBS or towed streamer survey gave the customer a versatile and cost-effective solution to better fit their specific challenges and budget,” said Maurice Nessim, president, WesternGeco, Schlumberger. “This industry-first acquisition underscores our commitment to offering our customers innovative approaches to offshore seismic acquisition challenges.”
