OceanGeo B.V., a geophysical company specializing in multicomponent ocean bottom seismic acquisition, has been awarded a contract for a 510 square kilometer ocean bottom 3D seismic survey in the Gulf of Paria offshore Trinidad for Petroleum Company of Trinidad and Tobago Limited (Petrotrin). Acquisition of the survey began in late December 2013 and is expected to be complete in April or May 2014.
Jamaludin Khan, Petrotrin’s Vice President Exploration and Production, commented, “The Gulf of Paria has produced in excess of 1.5 billion barrels of oil since 1955 and still has significant hydrocarbon producing potential. Meeting Petrotrin’s five-year strategic challenge of reserves replacement and increased production requires a new and superior quality seismic data set in the Gulf of Paria. A best-in-class ocean bottom seismic 3D survey provided by OceanGeo will provide the wide azimuth data we need to identify deeper Cretaceous plays and bypassed opportunities adjacent to existing reservoirs.”
