Shearwater GeoServices expects its Polar Empress seismic vessel to start a seismic survey soon over Block 52 in the Arabian Sea offshore Oman. Clients are Eni and Oman Oil Company Exploration and Production. The program comprises 2500 sq km (965 sq mi) of 3D data and 800 km (497 mi) of 2D acquisition and data processing. Shearwater has also secured a 3D broadband marine seismic-acquisition contract for India’s Oil and Natural Gas Corporation, with the surveys expected to take 5 months to complete. They will cover a total area in the Asia Pacific region of approximately 2000 sq km (772 sq mi), with the main streamer vessel mobilizing later this year.
