    Arrow Seismic acquires new source vessel

    Vessel & ROV News // November 10, 2006

    Arrow Seismic, the 54 per cent owned subsidiary of GC Rieber Shipping, has entered into agreement to purchase the 1992-built cargo vessel Sophie for US$6.75 million.

    Arrow also has an option to purchase a sister vessel built in 1993 at a similar price.

    Arrow, having access to winches and compressors for delivery in 2007, is planning to convert the vessels into source vessels.

    The size of the vessels (92m x 17m) is sufficient for a further rigging of streamer winches, enabling them to operate as mulltistreamer 3-D vessels.

    This alternative is being evaluated, depending on the availability of a propulsion upgrade.
