Shearwater GeoServices has secured a contract from TGS for its Crean 3D project to be conducted offshore Ireland.
Shearwater will provide one of its 3D vessels for the 5,400 km2 survey located in the South Porcupine Basin.
This award will strengthen Shearwater’s backlog in the EAME region for the 2017 season with approximately 4 additional vessel months, the company said.
Shearwater, a 50/50 owned by GC Rieber Shipping and Rasmussengruppen, has four seismic vessels in its fleet: Polar Empress, Polar Duke, Polar Duchess, and Polar Marquis.
The survey acquisition is expected to start in June 2017.
