Scan Completes Caribbean 3D Shoot Early

Scan Geophysical ASA has successfully completed two marine seismic 3D programs ahead of schedule for Canadian-based Sherritt International Corp. in the Caribbean region.

The M/V Scan Resolution completed the 3D programs ahead of schedule, and the work was classified by the client as "complex." More than 39,000 man-hours of effort went into the projects, and the work was completed without a single work-related lost-time incident.

Toronto-based Sherritt is involved in nickel and cobalt mining, thermal coal production, oil and gas exploration and production, and electricity generation.

"We are pleased with the performance of our vessel operations, its crews and operational support team, as well as the excellent support provided by our client, Sherritt, who fuelled the spirit of teamwork by tying all aspects of marine acquisition together, resulting in a job well done," said Kjell Karlsson, Vice President Marketing and Sales for Scan in Oslo, Norway. "Results like these are the right ingredients to successfully keep a Scan vessel working in one region and thereby avoid expensive and non-productive vessel transits around the world."

Scan Geophysical ASA is 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, and will soon launch one 2002 built 3D vessel and three new building state-of-the-art 10 streamer 3D vessels. Administration is located in Oslo, with representatives in Moscow, Singapore and Caracas.
