HOUSTON – Schlumberger reports that Statoil Gulf of Mexico has signed an agreement to license a large part of the WesternGeco Campeche wide-azimuth deepwater multi-client seismic survey in the southern Gulf of Mexico. The license also includes collaboration with WesternGeco in the seismic processing phase.
Maurice Nessim, president, WesternGeco, said: “We are pleased to have the opportunity to collaborate with Statoil in this breakthrough project, which is the first WAZ multi-client broadband survey in Mexican waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
“The complexity of the geology in the Campeche requires wide-azimuth acquisition to image the subsalt effectively, and we are bringing all of our experience gained in the US Gulf of Mexico to deliver enhanced subsalt imaging to our clients.”
A fleet of eight vessels is conducting the survey in the Bay of Campeche for the three-year project. The project follows the Mexican government opening licensing rounds to non-government companies for the first time.
