Petrobras Taps SCAN's 2D Seismic Vessel for Caribbean Survey

SCAN has received confirmation and a Letter of Intent (LOI) from Petrobras Middle East B.V. (PEMID) for its dedicated 2D vessel M/V GEO SEARCHER to acquire approximately 2,500 km of 2D data for Petrobras in the Caribbean region, with mobilization set for early May 2009.

The GEO SEARCHER will acquire 120 fold hi-density 2D data. This modern 2D seismic vessel is equipped to handle ultra long streamers for high-end 2D applications including longoffset and large source configurations for 2D surveys worldwide.

A SCAN spokesperson said the company is especially pleased to make this announcement because it marks the second contract opportunity to provide services to an important and major client such as Petrobras. SCAN also expressed confidence that the vessel and crew will carry out this survey in the same professional manner as it did in the previous project for Petrobras in the southern North Sea last year, with completion as scheduled.
