Shearwater GeoServices receives Mauritania 3D exploration award from Total 

Shearwater GeoServices Holding AS (“Shearwater”) is pleased to announce it has received an award for a large towed streamer 3D acquisition and Fast Track processing project by Total E&P Mauritania (“Total”).

“This award confirms that our strong client focus and leadership of the consolidation in the marine geophysical industry, has positioned us well to navigate through these challenging times,” said Irene Waage Basili, the CEO of Shearwater GeoServices.

The exploration survey covers 6,000 sq. km in the C15 and C31 Blocks using an ultra-wide tow Flexisource configuration, the largest triple source spread to date, together with Fast Track processing enabled by Shearwater’s proprietary Reveal software. The two-and-a-half-month survey is scheduled to commence in Q3 2020, adding to other recent activity in North West Africa for Shearwater, and will be carried out by the SW Empress (formerly “Polar Empress”).

“Shearwater has had strong activity in North West Africa, and we are pleased to return for this survey for Total in Mauritania,” said Irene Waage Basili.
