Geowave Endeavour deliveredVessel & ROV News // August 20, 2008
Wavefield Inseis has announced that the high capacity 3-D vessel Geowave Endeavour was delivered from Fosen Yard and taken on a seven-year time-charter from Volstad Maritime in July 2008.
The vessel mobilised for its first large 3-D contract with oil and gas major BG Norge on July 28th and was fully operational and in steady production on August 6th with 10 solid streamers of 6km length.
Endeavour is one of the world’s largest and most powerful 3-D vessels with 16 streamer vessel capacity. The vessel will complete the North Sea season for BG Norge in September and then continue on one of the world's largest 3-D seismic contracts for BP in Libya, estimated to be completed end of 2009.
"Our new flagship was delivered and taken into production as scheduled, in time to fulfill our client's need for data acquisition in the North Sea this season," said the compay's CEO Atle Jacobsen. “Our strategy of building large high quality and high capacity 3-D vessels and delivering them on time, has secured us a historical high contract back-log with major oil companies."
