Bell Geospace, Onyx Engineering Bag FTG Contract from PETRONAS

Bell Geospace reported Tuesday that the firm and Onyx Engineering have bagged a contract from Petroliam Nasional Berhad (PETRONAS) to provide 3D multi-client Full Tensor Gradiometry (FTG) data acquisition, processing and interpretative services over approximately 76,796 square miles (198,900 square kilometers) offshore Malaysia.

The partners will commence the airborne FTG and magnetic surveys over offshore Peninsular Malaysia, Sarawak and Sabah subject to pre-funding requirements and approval by PETRONAS.

"We expect that this data will play a significant role in the exploration process for companies working or considering working in Malaysia, allowing for the first time ever, a rapid selection of areas of interest for bidding and for planning for subsequent seismic acquisition and interpretation work," John Macfarlane, executive vice president of Bell Geospace said in the press release.
