Sercel has won a second major contract to supply land seismic equipment to a leading seismic acquisition contractor for a 3D mega-crew survey in Saudi Arabia.
It has also won a smaller contract to equip a 2D survey to be conducted by the same contractor. These two new contracts closely follow the recently announced award to Sercel of a similar large-scale contract to equip a separate Saudi 3D mega-crew survey.
The new 3D contract includes a Sercel 508XT seismic acquisition system of over 60,000 channels equipped with strings of SG-10 geophones, and a fleet of over 30 Nomad 65 Neo all-terrain vibrator trucks with a full VE464 advanced vibrator electronics package. The equipment will be deployed from March onwards on the desert survey that is scheduled to last three years.
Emmanuelle Dubu, CEO, Sercel, said: “The award of this second mega-crew equipment contract in Saudi Arabia significantly strengthens Sercel’s already well-established position in the Middle East. Our equipment was selected for this contract on the strength of our long-term commercial relationship with the client and the proven reliability of our high-performance seismic equipment for these challenging land surveys acquired by highly productive crews.”
Headquartered in Nantes, France, Sercel is worldwide leader in the seismic acquisition industry. The company designs, manufactures and supports a full range of high-tech integrated equipment for hydrocarbon exploration in land, transition zone, ocean-bottom cable, marine, and downhole environments.
