Contract let for Malaysian airborne 3D survey

State-run Petronas has awarded Bell Geospace together with Onyx Engineering a contract to acquire 198,900 sq km of airborne 3D full tensor gradiometry (FTG) and magnetic surveys offshore Peninsular Malaysia, Sarawak, and Sabah.

John Macfarlane, Bell Geospace executive vice-president, said the data will provide “a rapid selection of areas of interest for bidding and for planning for subsequent seismic acquisition and interpretation work.”

In July, state-run Petronas announced it had reached the halfway point of its long-planned project to build a refinery and petrochemical integrated development (RAPID) complex at Pengerang in southeastern Johor, Malaysia. The $27-28-billion complex will have a combined capacity to produce 7.7 million tonnes/year of various grades of products (OGJ Online, June 27, 2016).
