Seabed Geosolutions, a joint venture between Fugro and CGG, has secured two contracts for 3D and 4D ocean bottom node (OBN) seismic acquisitions.
The 3D OBN seismic acquisition will be undertaken for BHP over the greater Angostura field in shallow waters, offshore Trinidad.
The 225 km2 Trinidad project will start in the first quarter of 2018 and will use Seabed Geosolutions’ latest node handling solutions deployed by ROV. These subsea systems were developed together with Fugro.
Stephan Midenet, CEO of Seabed Geosolutions said: “We are delighted to partner with BHP for their first ever OBN survey over an existing field offshore Trinidad. We are confident that our technology, coupled with our operational track record, will provide BHP with the data quality they need to meet their development goals.”
Furthermore, the company will conduct 4D OBN acquisition for Shell Nigeria Exploration and Production Company in the Bonga field offshore Nigeria.
The 4D OBN monitor project will use Seabed Geosolutions’ Hugin Explorer vessel equipped with CASE Abyss nodes and will begin in the first quarter of 2018.
The combined value of the contracts is around USD 60 million, the company informed.
