Wavefield Inseis has been contracted by BP to carry out a seismic survey to the west of the Shetland Islands. The project, due to commence in May 2008, is expected to take 35-45 days and will involve a 4D marine survey within block 204 of the UK Continental Shelf.

Located over the Schiehallion, Loyal and Foinaven fields, approximately 190km west of the Shetland Islands, the survey will be acquired by one of Wavefield Inseis’ large capacity 3-D vessels and a source vessel for undershooting.

The first time the companies have worked together, the 4-D survey will rely on Wavefield Inseis’ acquisition technology and experience of 4-D marine projects.

“The agreement with BP represents another significant step forward for Wavefield Inseis,” commented Rick Donoghue, Wavefield Inseis’ vice president sales and marketing. He continued, “We are delighted to be awarded this 4-D survey and look forward to working with BP on many other projects.”

On the other side of the globe OMV has also awarded a contract to Wavefield Inseis for a major 2-D project offshore New Zealand. The programme of over 17,000 km is due to commence in October this year and will be acquired by the 2-D vessel Discoverer II over areas of both the Great South Basin and the Taranaki Basin.
