Equinor has hired Shearwater GeoServices for a 4D seismic survey at the Troll unit in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea. The survey will be carried out this summer.

The Troll Unit survey will last approximately two months. Shearwater will be using the Amazon Conqueror seismic vessel for the operation.

“The award of the Troll Unit project from Equinor adds to our extensive 4D and Isometrix program [ video below ] for the 2019 summer season. We are encouraged by our strong seasonal backlog which reflects an overall increase in 4D survey activity,” said Irene Waage Basili, the CEO of Shearwater GeoServices.

The new project with Equinor adds further to Shearwater’s 4D program in the North Sea and the Barents Sea this season as the company was just a month ago awarded three 4D survey deals also with Equinor. These are for surveys to be conducted in 2019 at the Kvitebjørn & Valemon, Visund, and Snøhvit fields.

The first survey is scheduled to start in 2Q and the total duration for the three 2019 projects is estimated at around three months. The surveys will be conducted by Shearwater’s Amazon Conqueror and SW Amundsen vessels.
