Offshore staff

OSLO, Norway Spectrum ASA has entered into a multi-client master cooperation agreement with the federal government of Somalia. This will allow the company to acquire about 28,000 km (17,398 mi) of long offset 2D seismic data of subsurface structures offshore south Somalia.

The new acquisition has been designed to complement 20,000 km (12,427 mi) of existing seismic that was acquired in 2014. Together, these seismic surveys will allow the study of hydrocarbon prospectivity offshore Somalia, which lies in close proximity to major discoveries on the East African margin.
