WesternGeco, Schlumberger’s subsidiary specializing in seismic acquisition, is getting ready for a marine seismic project in Canada.
Schlumberger on Friday said WesternGeco had received underwriting for a deepwater 3D multiclient survey covering more than 9,000 km2 in the Flemish Pass offshore Newfoundland.
Seismic acquisition will start in the second quarter of 2016 using IsoMetrix marine isometric seismic technology.
The purpose-built WesternGeco Amazon Conqueror will tow 14 streamers during the summer and deliver its first images later in the year.
In 2017, measurement of an additional 9,000 km2 is planned to provide contiguous high-resolution, long-offset, broadband seismic data for the location, Schlumberger said.
