Oxy Commissions Multiwave for Largest 4C 3D OBC Survey

Multiwave Geophysical has been commissioned by Occidental Petroleum of Qatar Ltd. to carry out what is believed to be the largest-ever 4-component 3D OBC survey. The 150 square kilometer project is designed to help Oxy further increase the efficiency of production of Qatar's ISND and ISSD offshore fields.

Multiwave commenced the project in mid-November 2003. Projected completion is late Q2 2004. "We rigged our vessels Pacific Titan and Polar King specifically to meet Oxy's needs," said Rick Donoghue, Multiwave's International Sales Manager. "To do this within just 6 weeks is possibly a record for a new OBC crew, and is a result of our experience in implementing surveys of this size and complexity."
