Shearwater said Monday that the survey would cover an area of approximately 600 square kilometers in the western Black Sea.

The project is expected to last one month and will begin in the fourth quarter of 2019. Shearwater will deploy the 2015-built Polar Empress survey vessel for the project.

“We are very pleased to receive this award by Shell which will employ the Polar Empress in continuation of other successful work offshore Turkey this season,” said Irene Waage Basili, the CEO of Shearwater GeoServices.

As previously reported, Turkish TPAO in September awarded Shearwater’s Polar Empress vessel a seismic acquisition and depth processing contract in the Turkish sector of the Black Sea.
