Polarcus Alima acquiring 3D offshore Cote d’Ivoire
2 Oct 2014
Polarcus Alima has mobilized for a dual-azimuth proprietary 3D seismic survey offshore Cote d’Ivoire, West Africa. The purpose-built seismic vessel is equipped with specialized, advanced maritime technology to minimize the environmental footprint of the operation and the vessel continues to set new standards for the industry, having been awarded the highest achievable Triple-E(TM) environmental and energy efficiency rating by DNV-GL, the world’s leading ship and maritime classification society.
The survey, for an undisclosed client, will cover an area of approximately 1,800 square kilometers and will involve the technologically-advanced seismic vessel towing a ten streamer receiver spread in two different azimuths, designed to optimally image the client’s geological objectives in the near shore shallow water blocks. The survey is expected to run for approximately two months.
This project forms part of the Company’s existing backlog that has been previously announced through the Oslo Stock Exchange.
