Seabed Geosolutions to conduct acquisition surveys for Total E&P in the North Sea

Seabed Geosolutions wins North Sea seismic contract from Total
The initial work programme consists of 3D and 2D surveys in the UK Sector of the North Sea

Seabed Geosolutions, a joint venture between Fugro and CGG, has secured a two-year contract with Total E&P to conduct acquisition surveys in the North Sea using its ocean bottom node seismic data acquisition technology. 

 

The initial work programme consists of approximately 5 months of 3D and 2D surveys and will commence in the UK sector of the North Sea in the fourth quarter of 2013.

 

The multiple survey areas will be acquired with Seabed Geosolutions’ deepwater Trilobit technology and robotic modularised handling equipment. This seismic system is a proprietary autonomous node technology deployed using an ROV (remotely operated vehicle).

 

The contract utilises a ‘call-out’ mechanism for each acquisition survey with the option to extend the contract for an additional 24 months.

 

Seabed Geosolutions was formed early 2013 as the seismic seabed joint venture of Fugro and CGG. It collects geophysical data on the seabed through an array of imaging technologies for energy companies, with a focus on the development and production phases of oil and gas fields.
