India’s Reliance Industries has awarded a 3D seismic data acquisition contract to seismic survey services provider Shearwater.

Under the contract, Shearwater will carry out a 3D survey in the Bay of Bengal, India.

The survey is slated to start in the first quarter of 2021 and covers 1,500 sq. km of block KG-UDWHP-2018/1 in the Krishna-Godavari basin. Shearwater will use the SW Vespucci seismic vessel for the seismic survey. The contract scope also includes fast-track time processing.

“We are pleased to be awarded this contract by Reliance and add to our backlog for the winter season,” said Irene Waage Basili, the CEO of Shearwater GeoServices. “Shearwater crews have remained busy in India throughout the year and this award is a confirmation of our leading market position and strong operational track record in the region.”
