HOUSTONBell Geospace and Onyx Engineering have won a contract from Petronas.

The contract, for 3D multi-client full tensor gradiometry (FTG) data acquisition, processing, and interpretative services, will cover about 198,900 sq km (76,795 sq mi). 

The provision of airborne FTG and magnetic surveys will be undertaken over offshore peninsular Malaysia, Sarawak, and Sabah, and will commence subject to pre-funding requirements and approval by Petronas.
