Genel commissions 3D seismic survey offshore Morocco
Shearwater GeoServices will acquire 3D seismic this summer for Genel Energy in the Sidi Moussa license offshore Morocco.
The survey will include dual, FlexiSource and multi-azimuth shooting, for appraisal and exploration targets, and will involve acquiring more than 3,500 sq km (1,351 sq mi) of 3D data over a three- to four-month period.
In addition, Shearwater’sPolar Marquis vessel will shoot two surveys offshore West Africa for an undisclosed client over a five-month period, with total coverage of around 10,000 sq km (3,861 sq mi).
For one of the surveys the vessel will employ FlexiSource, which is said to cut wide-tow large survey acquisition time by one-third compared to conventional dual-source seismic acquisition.
Throughout the winter season the company’s fleet has also been engaged on acquisition surveys in the Indian Ocean.
