Seabed Geosolutions eyes OBN survey job in Gulf of Mexico

Seabed Geosolutions, a joint venture between Fugro and CGG, has received a letter of intent for another 3D ocean bottom node (OBN) survey in an active area of the U.S. Gulf of Mexico for ‘a major energy company.’

Fugro said on Wednesday that the project would use Seabed Geosolutions’ Hugin Explorer vessel, equipped with CASE Abyss nodes that would be deployed by remotely operated vehicles (ROVs).

The survey, which will be performed in 2,000 meters of water depths, will start in the coming months and take approximately three months to complete. The letter of intent includes an option for another survey.

Stephan Midenet, CEO of Seabed Geosolutions, stated: “We are delighted to again partner with this major energy provider in another deepwater Gulf of Mexico field.

“We are confident that our proprietary OBN technology, coupled with our extensive expertise in the Gulf of Mexico, will aid in illuminating their target field with the data quality they need to meet their development goals.”

Earlier this month, Seabed Geosolutions sold its shallow-water ocean bottom cable recording equipment for around $ 10 million and completed a deepwater proprietary 3D OBN survey in the Santos Basin, offshore Brazil.
