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.

John Macfarlane executive vice president of Bell Geospace said: “We expect that this data will play a significant role in the exploration process for companies working or considering working in Malaysia, allowing for the first time ever, a rapid selection of areas of interest for bidding and for planning for subsequent seismic acquisition and interpretation work.”
