ION Geophysical’s ocean bottom seismic (OBS) company, OceanGeo, is mobilizing its vessels and crew for a survey offshore Nigeria.
The company received a letter of commitment for the project from an undisclosed international client.
ION expects the contract to be finalized within the next few weeks.
Brian Hanson, ION president and CEO said, “We are pleased to be putting our OBS crew back to work. We will immediately begin mobilizing to the project site, expect to begin acquiring data in late June or early July, and to complete full demobilization by late in the third quarter. Our technology is well suited for additional opportunities in Nigeria and West Africa, and we continue to pursue active tenders and leads for projects in the area. We remain optimistic about our ability to keep the crew deployed upon completion of this project.”
