UAE-based marine seismic acquisition company Polarcus has been awarded an XArray 3D marine seismic acquisition project.
Polarcus said on Wednesday that the project duration was for up to ten vessel months and was expected to start in the third quarter of 2018.
The company added that the project would provide backlog for two vessels throughout the fourth quarter of 2018 and the first quarter of 2019.
Polarcus has not revealed the name of the client, the vessels to be used nor any other details regarding the project.
The Polarcus XArray is an acquisition configuration developed by Polarcus to deliver ‘superior’ data quality and make full use of today’s larger streamer spreads.
According to Polarcus, it improves both in-line shots by 100- 250 percent and cross-line bin density by up to 400 percent on any streamer separation and can be tailored to provide higher fold data, increase crossline sampling and improve acquisition efficiency.
The last time Offshore Energy Today reported on an award of an XArray 3D marine seismic acquisition project to Polarcus was in May for work in the Asia Pacific region.
It is also worth reminding that Polarcus recently appointed Lars Oestergaard as a new chief operating officer (COO). He will lead the company’s geophysical, operations, and sales teams as well as the EHSQ department.
