Dolphin Geophysical Commences Seismic Survey for Ophir Energy Off Myanmar

Norway's Dolphin Geophysical AS reported Wednesday that it has just mobilized the "world's largest floating object" by deploying a seismic spread of 12 streamers, 23,130 feet (7,050 meters) in length with 492 feet (150 meters) streamer separation, off the coast of Myanmar for Ophir Energy Plc. This configuration of equipment has a moving width of 6.06 feet (1.850 meters) and the seismic spread covers a total area of about 4.6 square miles (12 square kilometers). The Dolphin modern and high capacity fleet, once again proves its ability to deliver cost efficient and powerful solutions to our clients.

Bjarne Stavenes, VP Technical, commented: "Ophir Energy PLC challenged the industry to provide a cost efficient solution to acquire their large 3,861 square miles (10,000 square kilometers) survey in Myanmar. Dolphin responded by offering this ultra-wide towing solution. After a swift mobilization, Dolphin's Sanco Sword is now in steady production with acquisition of about 57.9 square miles (150 square kilometers) in a single day. This is believed to be a world record for our industry and we expect Sword to become the benchmark vessel when it comes to productivity going forward."

As a fully integrated geophysical company, Dolphin is also delivering a complete Fast Track on-board processing system powered by our proprietary OpenCPS software, and our Singapore processing office will ensure a timely delivery of a complete high quality Pre-Stack Time Migrated (PSTM) SHarp Broadband dataset.
