    Dolphin conducting 14-streamer survey in Black Sea - 22-streamer vessel coming

    Projects and Operations // July 7, 2014

    Dolphin Geophysical's vessel Polar Marquis is currently towing a record 14-streamer configuration of 14 x 100m x 6,000m in the Black Sea, one of only three surveys ever conducted using this configuration.

    Polar Marquis has a powerful 220+ tonnes of bollard pull and is able to achieve a 5 knots acquisition speed with this configuration, using only 70 per cent of the available propulsion.

    In the second quarter of 2015 Dolphin will be taking delivering of Polar Empress, a 22-streamer, purpose-built, high capacity, 3D vessel with a bollard pull exceeding 300 tonnes.
