Wavefield Inseis acquires new 2D/3D vesselVessel & ROV News // April 13, 2007
Marine seismic acquisition specialist, Wavefield Inseis ASA, is bringing a new vessel into operation as the company further expands its 2-D/3-D capability.
The vessel, Malene Østervold, is currently being converted in Norway and will be fully operational in June 2007.
Commencing operations by acquiring a series of 2-D projects in the North Sea, Malene Østervold is ideally suited to long offset 2-D and small 3-D acquisition.
Carrying the very latest seismic acquisition technology, the vessel will be equipped with new Sercel SEAL streamers (1 x 12000m or 2 x 6000m) and dual Bolt airgun source arrays.
Wavefield Inseis’ second 2-D craft, Malene Østervold brings the number of vessels in the company’s fleet to six and is in line with the company’s aim to provide a flexible seismic fleet with ready access to 2-D vessels that can also be used as source vessels for wide-azimuth projects and undershoots.
