LONDON -- India's Oil & Natural Gas Corp. has extended its contract with WesternGeco for Q-Marine system services.
The existing contract covered two Q-Marine vessels during 2005-2006 for offshore India. The extension covers two vessels for two more seasons to target areas off the western and eastern coasts of India.
"The initial Q-Marine contract, and now this extension, represent the largest cumulative seismic acquisition effort undertaken in India to date and underscores the significant commitment of ONGC to explore, develop, and produce hydrocarbons in India through the utilization of the foremost seismic technology available today," said D.K. Pande, director (Exploration) for ONGC.
"We will continue to process the surveys in our newly expanded Mumbai data processing center," said Richard Cieslewicz, WesternGeco regional manager. "We provide a full suite of advanced data processing services, including depth imaging, as well as reservoir seismic services such as reservoir characterization and 4D (time-lapse) processing and analysis."
