Shearwater GeoServices awarded large South America survey.

Shearwater GeoServices Holding AS (“Shearwater”) is pleased to announce the award of a large survey to be acquired in South America starting in Q4 2019.

The 6-month project covers approximately 8,500 sq. km and will be acquired by the Amazon Warrior using 14-streamers and Flexisource triple source. The Amazon Warrior is equipped with a Qmarine streamer system and has been working offshore Brazil since March 2019 and is designed to execute safe, high productivity seismic data acquisition in harsh environments.

“The Amazon Warrior has proven to be a powerful and effective seismic vessel in Brazil,” said Irene Waage Basili, the CEO of Shearwater GeoServices. “We are very excited to see the vessel remaining in South America and adding to the large volume of high quality 3D data acquired since its arrival there. This award further strengthens a growing Shearwater backlog.”

The Amazon Warrior is designed, in its entirety, for the purpose of high-capacity seismic acquisition. As one of two Amazon class vessels in Shearwater’s fleet, it is tailor-made to deliver a safe, efficient, and stable performance during all seismic operations. It is equipped for world-wide operations ranging from harsh artic environments, to South Atlantic conditions where the unique vessel design enables low noise data to be acquired through an extended operational window.
