SeaBird Exploration, a provider of seismic survey vessels, has signed a letter of intent with an unnamed client for an upcoming 2D seismic survey in South America.
According to Seabird, the project is estimated to begin in the first half of the third quarter.
Without revealing any specifics about the client or where exactly the project will be conducted, SeaBird said it would be using the Northern Explorer vessel for the job.
The Northern Explorer 2D long offset and source vessel is 76 meters long, built in 1986 and rebuilt in 1998. According to current AIS data, the vessel is anchored several miles offshore Montevideo, Uruguay.
The project will have a duration of approximately two and a half months.
