    ChevronTexaco awards 3-D survey to WesternGeco

    News // July 4, 2003
    ChevronTexaco Upstream Europe has announced that it has awarded a contract to WesternGeco for a 3D seismic survey utilising the advanced Q-Marine* system. The contract is for a 30-day seismic acquisition programme in the ChevronTexaco operated Captain field in the outer Moray Firth, UK North Sea.

    Q-Marine is a proprietary marine seismic acquisition and processing system, comprising a suite of technologies designed for enhanced reservoir management. Improved imaging is a key factor in achieving better understanding of reservoir conditions and in delineating development opportunities.

    The survey, scheduled for July 2003, will be conducted by the Geco Topaz Q-Marine vessel and is expected to cover more than 200 square kilometres across block 13/22a.
