SeaBird Exploration, a provider of seismic data to the oil and gas industry, has signed a contract for undershoot work in the North Sea during this coming summer season.

The project is due to start in the third quarter of 2016 and it will run for approximately 3 weeks.

SeaBird did not provide further details about the project, nor did it name the client.

According to Schlumberger’s oilfield glossary, undershooting is a technique for acquisition of seismic data beneath areas that are difficult to access at the surface of the Earth, such as near rivers, drilling rigs, production platforms, environmentally sensitive areas or around seismically problematic features such as salt domes, which introduce uncertainty because of their high velocity. The sources and receivers are located on opposite sides of the feature.
