    WesternGeco sells seismic ship

    Vessel & ROV News // October 15, 2004
    The 3D seismic research vessel Western Legend has been sold by WesternGeco to Columbia University's Lamont Doherty Earth Observatory of Palisades, New York.

    The ship will replace the Lamont-operated 72.2m x 14/0m, 3,200hp R/V Maurice Ewing, which has accumulated well over half a million miles of track in its service to science and exploration of ocean and deep Earth processes.

    The National Science Foundation provided funding of more than US$20 million to support the purchase and refitting of the ship from Western Geco Inc, who has operated her for several years.
