Marine seismic acquisition company Polarcus has received an award for a 3D project offshore West Africa.
The project, with an undisclosed client, is expected to begin in the early fourth quarter 2017 with a scheduled duration of one month.
The Polarcus XArray methodology will be utilized to optimize both data quality and acquisition efficiency.
Richard Price, Senior Vice President, Western Hemisphere Polarcus, said: “We are pleased to have secured this project for our Q4 backlog, especially as the timing aligns very well with completion of the North Sea season. With only a short transit, this enables us to optimize vessel utilization and strategically position a vessel in West Africa for follow on work.”
The company did not reveal the financial details nor the name of the vessel it will be using for the project.
