PARIS – CGGVeritas has landed the first contract for its newbuild Oceanic Sirius seismic survey vessel. The vessel will conduct a 3D BroadSeis survey in Avaldsnes field, offshore Norway, for Lundin Petroleum.

“An essential part of the Lundin exploration philosophy is to continuously learn and seek new understanding through new technology,” said Hans Christen Rønnevik, Lundin’s exploration manager.

“Broadband technology represents a step-change in marine seismic acquisition. Based on very encouraging results from a 2D BroadSeis R&D test over the Luno discovery that we conducted early this year, Lundin, as an operator of the PL501 license, has chosen to proceed with 3D BroadSeis acquisition over the Avaldsnes discovery.”
