GC Rieber Shipping: Shearwater GeoServices awarded 1st Latin American Isometrix survey by Ecopetrol

GC Rieber Shipping ASA’s 20% owned geoservices company Shearwater GeoServices is pleased to announce the award of a 3D Isometrix seismic survey by Colombia’s Ecopetrol S.A. It will be the first Isometrix survey in Latin America with marine acquisition starting in Q4 2019.

The survey covers 2 000 sq. km of 3D seismic offshore Colombia on Ecopetrol’s Block COL-5 and will be acquired by the SW Amundsen equipped with Isometrix multisensor streamer technology. Isometrix streamer technology is a true 3D multisensor system that can record the full seismic wavefield enabling better receiver deghosting and improved seismic images. The survey is expected to take 1.5 months to complete.

Shearwater experiences increased activity in Latin America and has established a new Colombian branch to support this coming operation. This follows the recent set-up of a subsidiary in Brazil to support Shearwater’s growth in the region.
