According to the contract the oil company will use the data on a license basis, and RXT retains ownership and certain commercialisation and licensing rights. The contract is subject to government approval. RXT is in advanced negotiations with several clients in West Africa and additional work is expected in near future.
Reservoir Exploration Technology ASA (RXT) is the only marine geophysical company specializing in multi component seismic seafloor acquisition. Multi-component seismic solves several imaging challenges that cannot be resolved with towed streamer seismic, and targets improved oil recovery from existing fields. The technology also gives better data quality for appraisal and development, and is also the solution where towed streamers are impractical due to high density of platforms and/ or shallow waters. The Company has offices in Oslo, Norway in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in Abu Dhabi, UAE and Houston, Texas.
