GEMS Awards SCAN Geophysical a 2D Survey Offshore Sri Lanka

SCAN Geophysical ASA has been awarded a contract from GEMS International N.V. (GEMS) for a 2D survey offshore Sri Lanka.

GEMS, a Belgian and UK-based company specializing in EEZ (exclusive economic zone) and UNCLOS (United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea) studies is conducting the survey on behalf of the government of Sri Lanka (DEOCOM) as part of its outer continental shelf delimiting study.

SCAN's M/V Geo Searcher using a 6,000m streamer and a 4,200 cu. ins. source array is acquiring the approximate two month survey scheduled to complete in September 2007.

"We are pleased to continue our work with GEMS in this region," said Stephane Touche, vice president and COO of SCAN. "Having done UNCLOS work of this special nature in the past year, we expect to achieve good quality and productivity," he emphasized.
