Multiwave Wins Shell Mediterranean Contract

Multiwave Geophysical has been commissioned by Shell to carry out a major seismic acquisition campaign in the Mediterranean. The project, due to commence later this month, will involve a large-scale 2D marine survey and a possible 3D site survey in deepwater offshore Egypt.

Located in Mediterranean waters, the 5,200km 2D project will provide Shell with critical information, forming the basis for key decisions within the area. Already working with Shell on other projects worldwide, Multiwave meets the full range of Shell's requirements for operating in an ultra-deepwater environment.

Specifically designed for the acquisition of deepwater seismic data, Multiwave has rigged the C-Orion especially for the project.

"We are delighted to further strengthen our relationship with Shell by being selected for another significant project," commented Rick Donoghue, Multiwave's Vice President Sales and Marketing. "This is an endorsement of our ability to fulfil specific briefs in challenging environments, and we look forward to completing a highly successful assignment."
