Russian geological company Rosgeo has introduced a 12-streamer 3D vessel to meet the stronger demand for marine seismic surveys both in the Russian Arctic and elsewhere.
The extra vessel reflects the company’s ‘focus on long-term development strategy’ as the industry upswing is forecast to continue.
The vessel Akademik Primakov, named in honor of the scholar and politician, has already acquired two surveys. The first one was a 4150 sq. km project of Gazprom in the Barents Sea, which was followed by a multi-client 1000 sq.km survey offshore Morocco for Geoex Ltd.
The company said that it expected to be busy in the Arctic season ahead. ‘Rosgeo is looking forward to putting the company in a significantly stronger position with a substantial backlog building up owing to the resurgence in both multi-client and proprietary data acquisition all across the globe’, said a Rosgeo management.
