SeaBird will be using the Nordic Explorer vessel for the work. It added that the survey in this area fits well with the last reported 10,000 km 2D contract in Australasia.
Nordic Explorer will now be used for back-to-back utilization in the fourth quarter of 2019 and for the majority of the first quarter of 2020.
What is more, earlier in September, SeaBird was granted a contract to enhance 2D seismic data in the Australasia region, using the Nordic Explorer vessel as well.
This survey will begin on the fourth quarter of 2019, and is expected to last for about three to four months plus mobilization.
