Dolphin Geophysical has formally been awarded the acquisition and processing of a 7,000 sq. km. SHarp Broadband 3D survey offshore Senegal by Kosmos Energy.
The Dolphin high-capacity 3D vessel, Polar Duchess has commenced operations and it will take approximately four months to complete. Dolphin's OpenCPS software will be utilised both onboard the vessel to produce a PostSTM Fast-Track dataset and then for the final PSTM volume at Dolphin's UK Processing Centre.
Atle Jacobsen, Dolphin's CEO commented "We are very pleased to have been awarded this large SHarp 3D acquisition and processing contract from Kosmos Energy, one of the leading acreage holders in North West Africa. This is our first seismic project for Kosmos and Dolphin's fifth survey in Senegal".
This contract is included in the Q2 2014 backlog, previously announced by Dolphin.
