Statoil looking at Schlumberger’s Campeche seismic data (Mexico)

World’s largest oilfield services company Schlumberger has executed a contract with Norway’s Statoil for a large part of WesternGeco’s Campeche wide-azimuth (WAZ) deepwater multiclient seismic survey in the southern Gulf of Mexico, off Mexico.

The license also includes collaboration with WesternGeco, a subsidiary of Schlumberger, in the seismic processing phase.

Maurice Nessim, president, WesternGeco, said: “We are pleased to have the opportunity to collaborate with Statoil in this breakthrough project, which is the first WAZ multiclient broadband survey in Mexican waters of the Gulf of Mexico. The complexity of the geology in the Campeche requires wide-azimuth acquisition to image the subsalt effectively, and we are bringing all of our experience gained in the US Gulf of Mexico to deliver enhanced subsalt imaging to our clients.”

According to Schlumberger, a fleet of eight vessels is conducting the survey in the Bay of Campeche for the three-year project. The project follows the Mexican government opening licensing rounds to non-government companies for the first time.

Schlumberger started the seismic survey that will cover 80,000 sq km on August 10 this year.
