Chevron Taps Wavefield Inseis for Faroe Shetland Basin Survey

Wavefield Inseis has been selected by Chevron to carry out a new long offset 2D seismic survey in the Faroe-Shetland Basin. The survey will be acquired by the Wavefield Inseis vessel, Malene Ostervold, and forms part of the previously announced backlog for the vessel.

The project, due to be completed by August this year, will be acquired with a 10,000m seismic streamer towed at a depth of 23 meters. The deep towed source and streamer parameters have been designed to optimize low frequency signal.

Commenting on the survey, Wavefield Inseis' vice president marketing and sales, Rick Donoghue stated, "This is the first time we have worked with Chevron and we are delighted to add them to our growing client list. The survey will utilize our recently converted Malene Ostervold vessel, and we look forward to a successful project."
