FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Geokinetics awarded a contract by Brunei Shell Petroleum to acquire a high resolution 3D survey in Brunei Darussalam
HOUSTON, TX (20 March 2017) - Geokinetics Inc., a provider of integrated seismic data acquisition, processing and reservoir analysis solutions, is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a contract by Brunei Shell Petroleum Company Sdn Bhd (BSP) to acquire a high resolution 3D seismic survey, offshore Brunei Darussalam. The acquisition is scheduled for Q2 2017 and involves the deployment of a hybrid recording solution that comprises both towed streamers and ocean bottom nodes, positioned around extensive field production infrastructure.
“We are pleased that our expertise in complex seafloor survey operations has been recognized through the award of this project.” stated Mr. David Crowley, President and CEO of Geokinetics. “This marks our fourth project with BSP within the last six years, which clearly demonstrates the trust that Geokinetics has earned with this prestigious client.”
Geokinetics is a market leader in deploying state-of-the-art acquisition and processing technologies to 2D, 3D and 4D land, transition zone (TZ) and marine Ocean Bottom System (OBS) surveys in challenging environments.
“Geokinetics substantial acquisition experience in the region dates back to the early 1970's.” said Craig Walker, Regional Manager Asia Pacific, based in Singapore. “I'm delighted that we have secured this contract and look forward to working with BSP again.”
The project will be managed by Geokinetics' Seafloor Operations (SFO) Group, which acquires seafloor seismic from beach to deepwater anywhere in the world, in all geographic and geological settings. The SFO Group is comprised of a fleet of specialized proprietary vessels and equipment, including both ocean bottom cable (OBC) and ocean bottom nodal (OBN) recording systems.
“Providing innovative solutions to challenging projects and executing them safely and efficiently is our core business.” said Ewan Neill, Vice President, Marine Acquisition. “Our hybrid recording system solution, combining streamer and nodal, provides BSP with the most cost effective solution for acquiring the seismic data that is required to underpin this field's future development program.”
