Scan to Acquire Additional 2D Data Offshore Pakistan

Scan Geophysical ASA will record 9,500 km of 2D data offshore Pakistan for BP and GEMS International N.V. This new survey follows the acquisition of approximately 4,300 km of 2D seismic data offshore Pakistan for GEMS in November/December last year.

Scheduled to begin in June 2007, the survey is estimated to take three to four months to complete. It will be conducted by Scan's modern, high- capacity 2D vessel M/V Geo Searcher using a 6,000 m streamer and a 4,200 cu. ins. source.

"Together with GEMS, we are pleased to be awarded this work from BP," said Stephane Touche, vice president and COO of Scan. "We believe it further demonstrates the continuing acceptance of Scan as a quality seismic contractor by the major energy companies."

Scan Geophysical was established in 2002 as a Norwegian seismic data acquisition company specializing in both marine streamer seismic and ocean-bottom cable seismic. The company is currently operating one 2D and one 3D streamer vessel, and will launch three new state-of-the-art 3D vessels during 2008 and one 2002-built 2D/3D vessel in Q3 of 2007. The administration is located in Oslo, with representatives in Houston, Singapore and Caracas.
