Shell Contract Puts Multiwave in a Class of its Own

Shell has awarded Multiwave Geophysical a 4C seismic contract in the Gulf of Mexico. The contract, which involves installation of 4-component seismic cable over Shell's deepwater Mars field, also requires Multiwave to acquire repeat seismic surveys for 4D analysis over the next one to two years.

Now the only seismic contractor currently installing permanent seismic monitoring systems, Multiwave will be utilizing advanced cabling from Geospace Engineering Resources International. Operating at a depth of 1000 meters, the cable will be placed on the seabed and tied back to a sophisticated recording system located on the platform, designed to give Shell the most accurate and reliable survey possible.

"We are naturally delighted to have won the contract," commented Karstein Roed, President of Multiwave, "and the fact that we are seen by Shell as the most appropriate solution for such a project further underlines our capability and track-record."
