COSL to Commission Building of Deepwater Geophysical, Survey Vessels
COSL hosted a signing ceremony for agreements to commission building of a deepwater 12-streamer geophysical vessel COSL720 and a deepwater survey vessel COSL708 on July 3, 2009 in Beijing.
COSL720 is a 12-streamer dual-detector giant geophysical vessel powered by both diesel and electricity capable of navigating in unrestricted waters. It will be mainly used for collection of 3D seismic data in deepwater. COSL708 is an electricity-powered deep-water exploration vessel capable of navigating in unrestricted waters. It will be mainly used in geological surveying for ocean-bound engineering projects.
These two vessels constitute parts of the integrated supporting facilities in the Company's deepwater key-technology initiatives.
COSL720 is to be built by Shanghai Shipyard Co., Ltd. and will be rated by China Classification Society upon completion. COSL708 is to be built by CSSC Guangzhou Shipbuilding Company Ltd. and will be rated by both China Classification Society and Det Norske Veritas upon completion. COSL720 is scheduled to be delivered in April 2011. COSL708 is scheduled to be delivered in March 2011.
Completion of these two vessels will see COSL's deepwater service capabilities significantly enhanced, and the vessels will complete COSL's deepwater service chain.
