Magseis starts Red Sea seismic survey for Saudi Aramco

Artemis Athene

Magseis, a Norwegian geophysical company, has together with its partner BGP Arabia officially started operations on Saudi Aramco’s project in the Red Sea. 

Magseis was awarded Saudi Aramco’s S78 project for large-scale ocean bottom seismic acquisition in the Red Sea in February 2016.

The company said on Monday that the project started following a period of preparation and testing.

The survey will be recorded with Magseis’ proprietary MASS system and deployed in water depths ranging from 1 to 1000m.

The project has an expected duration of 9 months and a 12-month extension option.

According to the seismic company, the survey features complicated surface and geological conditions with a combination of deep and shallow marine work.

The company also said back in February that M/V Artemis Athene, Magseis’ OBS vessel, will be used for the survey.
