Scan Picks Up 3D Job from PdVSA

Scan Geophysical has been awarded a contract for 3D seismic survey offshore Venezuela from PdVSA.

The work area, located off the northwest coast of Venezuela, is called Cardon II and comprises 400 Km2 of 3D seismic to be collected with scheduled start-up during summer of 2007.

The M/V Scan Resolution, which recently completed six months of 3D survey work offshore Venezuela and now is acquiring other programs in the Caribbean region, will return to Venezuela for this program. "This contract is important for Scan in terms of area to be surveyed," said Stephane Touche, vice president and COO of Scan. "Keeping our 3D vessel working in this region for a major company is consistent with our overall strategy to make the Americas one of our most targeted regions and to work directly for operating entities" he added.

Scan Geophysical ASA was established in 2002 as a Norwegian seismic data acquisition company specializing in both marine streamer seismic and ocean bottom seismic. The company is currently operating one 2D and one 3D streamer vessel, and scheduled to launch three new state-of-the-art 3D vessels during 2008 and one 2002-built 2D/3D vessel during Q3, 2007.
