Seabed Geosolutions, a joint venture between Fugro and CGG, has secured a 4D baseline ocean bottom node (OBN) project offshore West Africa, Offshore Energy Today reported.

The duration of the project is six weeks and the crew is currently in the mobilization phase of the project, SubSea World News informed. According to Seabed Geosolutions, the project will support the optimization of the recovery rate during the development and production phases of oil and gas fields by providing data on hydrocarbon prospects, reservoir characteristics, and potential geohazards.

The project positions the company well to respond to other potential deals in the region. The company’s ocean bottom node (OBN) system is designed to meet the demands of all survey configurations and to provide an alternative to a wide-azimuth (WAZ) streamer survey.

OBN systems can work in depths of up to 3,000m of water and can be used during dense source grid, full-azimuth, and long-offset surveys.
