These two high-capacity innovative vessels are key components of CGGVeritas' strategy of progressive fleet renewal, involving the staged retirement of the former generation of lower capacity vessels in conjunction with the introduction of these new platforms. The new vessels are purpose-designed for the efficient deployment of industry-leading Sercel solid streamer technology and configured for spreads of up to 16 long streamers, or 20 shorter streamers in high-density applications.
"Our long-term strategy to position our marine fleet as the highest performing in the industry relies on both technical innovation and quality relationships with our suppliers", said Robert Brunck, Chairman and CEO of CGGVeritas. "We are extremely pleased to partner with Eidesvik Offshore ASA and Ulstein Design AS to introduce these vessels into our fleet and to further strengthen the relationship between our companies. The exclusive vessel design, with its superior technical capabilities and advanced features, aims to significantly improve the productivity of our marine operations and to provide our customers with the most advanced technology for conducting wide-azimuth, high-resolution exploration and production seismic surveys in the most environmentally friendly manner."
With the introduction of these two new-build vessels, CGGVeritas will operate the most versatile and capable worldwide fleet in the industry.
CGGVeritas and Arrow Seismic ASA also announced that they have agreed to cancel the negotiation for a 12 year Bare Boat charter as outlined in the LOI dated December 2006.
