Polarcus Commences Multi-Client Survey Offshore Northwest Africa

Polarcus Limited announced Monday that it has commenced a new 3D broadband multi-client survey across the Mauritania-Senegal-Guinea-Bissau Basin (MSGB), offshore northwest Africa.

The survey, which is supported by industry funding, will cover an area of 579 square miles offshore The Gambia and is expected to run for 50 days. Polarcus expects final data products to be available in 1Q 2016.

Prefunding for the project was secured due to “the heightened industry interest in the Cretaceous slope fan and shelf-edge reef plays along the entire MSGB margin”, according to a Polarcus press release.

Polarcus has conducted broadband projects offshore Australia, the UK and in the Mediterranean since the beginning of the year. The company Appointed Rod Starr as the new chief executive officer on January 11, 2015, following Rolf Ronningen’s decision to retire in 1Q 2015.
