LEIDSCHENDAM, the NetherlandsSeabed Geosolutions has secured a letter of award to provide a 3D ocean bottom node (OBN) survey in 2,000 m (6,566 ft) of water in the Santos basin.

The 410-sq km (158-sq mi) survey, which has a contract value of more than $50 million, will be performed for an unnamed company using the company’s proprietary Manta OBN technology and ROVs. The four-component (4C) project is expected to begin in 2Q 2020 and take around four months to complete.

CEO Stephan Midenet said: “We are excited to work with a pioneer in ocean-bottom technologies to deploy our new Manta technology, which has been recently and successfully used offshore Brazil for Petrobras on the Buzios field to deliver exceptional data quality. The survey data, which will be used to inform the area’s subsurface, will be acquired over an area of significant discoveries.”

Seabed Geosolutions is a joint venture between Fugro and CGG.
