The provider of comprehensive ocean bottom seismic (OBS) solutions to the global oil and gas industry Seabed Geosolutions and its partner have been awarded a 3D ocean bottom node survey in the Red Sea.

The S-79 project will require the acquisition and processing of high quality 3D data over a large area in various water depths.

Seabed’s highly efficient 4C Manta ocean bottom nodes will be used, in combination with its best-in-class ROV deployment system in deep waters and node-on-a-wire system in shallower areas. The surveys are scheduled to commence early 2019.

The contract will be jointly executed and shared with Seabed’s partner in the Middle East ARGAS, who is the contract holder.

Stephan Midenet, CEO of Seabed: “We are very pleased to partner with ARGAS in order to provide services to Saudi Aramco on this high profile project using our best-in-class nodes and deployment technologies. This latest contract demonstrates Saudi Aramco’s continued confidence in both ARGAS and Seabed and further strengthens our long-standing technology partnership."

Stephan added: "ARGAS, Seabed’s long-term partner in the region, was instrumental in securing this important contract award. Seabed’s technologies and ARGAS’ proven operational track record in the Kingdom are a powerful combination and will result in a successful execution of this project.”
