Multiwave Brings C-Orion into Operation

Multiwave Geophysical has brought a new vessel into operation as the company gears up for a major seismic acquisition campaign in the Mediterranean which is due to start later this month. The vessel, C-Orion, has been rigged by Multiwave specifically for the project, which will include a large-scale 2D survey and 3D program.

Specifically designed for acquisition of deepwater seismic surveys, the C-Orion is a 6 streamer vessel and provides a high capacity 3D solution for the delivery of the highest quality data. As such, it is perfectly suited to the needs of Multiwave's clients worldwide.

The vessel, owned by Edison Chouest, is equipped with some of the latest geophysical acquisition technology.

"We always look extremely carefully at the alternatives when selecting a vessel," commented Rick Donoghue, Multiwave's Vice President Sales and Marketing, "and chose the C-Orion as it is provides a very flexible platform for our "on demand" business model."
