Petronas Taps Scan for 2D Survey in the Caribbean

Petronas Carigali Overseas SDN BHD has awarded Scan Geophysical ASA a contract for 2D marine acquisition in the Caribbean region.

Malaysian state-owned Petronas, which aims to become a leading multinational oil and gas company, will be exploring for hydrocarbons in the region.

Scan is scheduled to commence acquisition of the 2D program during June 2007 utilizing the M/V Scan Resolution, which will employ an 8,000-meter streamer and a 4,000-cubic-inch source. The contract is expected to last for approximately two months.

"We are extremely pleased to be awarded work for Petronas" said Stephane Touche, vice president and COO of Scan. "This is a breakthrough for Scan as it opens potential doors for other seismic work around the world that may be considered by Petronas."

Scan Geophysical ASA was established in 2002 as an international seismic data acquisition company specializing in both marine streamer seismic and ocean bottom seismic. The company is currently operating one 2D and one 3D vessel. It will soon launch one 2002 built 3D vessel and three newbuild state-of-the-art 3D vessels, each capable of towing eight to 10 streamers. Its administration is located in Oslo, with representatives in Moscow, Singapore, and Caracas.
