LIMASSOL, CyprusSeaBird Exploration will acquire a long-offset 2D multi-client survey in the Norwegian Barents Sea during September and October.

The company designed the survey jointly with Lundin Norway.

They aim to acquire long-offset profiles that image large-scale, deep-seated crustal structures beneath the Barents Sea. Lundin will supervise processing of the resultant dataset.

SeaBird will use the Harrier Explorer vessel for the campaign.

Earlier this month the company entered into a contract to acquire another vessel, Hawk Explorer, which it has chartered since 2006.

SeaBird will pay $1.1 million, including the vessel’s seismic equipment, and will cancel all future lease payments and additional obligations under the charter agreement.
