BERGEN, Norway – Total E&P South Africa B.V. has given Shearwater GeoServices Holding AS a conditional letter of award for a 2D seismic acquisition and fasttrack processing project.

The survey at block 11B-12B will be Shearwater’s first project offshore South Africa.

The multi-purpose vessel SW Cook will acquire the initial 3,650-linear km (2,268-mi) program. Starting in 4Q 2019, it has a base duration of two months.

The project includes fasttrack processing facilitated by the vessel’s high-capacity onboard computer facility and experienced processing teams linked by satellite to client and project teams.
