Shearwater Embarks on Groundbreaking OBN Survey in India

Shearwater GeoServices Holding AS (Shearwater) is thrilled to announce its selection by the Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) for a landmark Ocean Bottom Node (OBN) survey off the coast of India. This venture, spanning six months, showcases their Pearl node technology aboard the SW Tasman, a vessel reimagined for peak efficiency in executing advanced seismic source and dual ROV operations.

The deployment of Shearwater’s Pearl node technology is a testament to Shearwater's unwavering quest to push the boundaries of OBN seismic exploration. The fusion of the Pearl node with the SW Tasman not only elevates survey efficiency and quality but also paves the way for groundbreaking seismic data collection in deepwater territories once deemed unreachable.

Irene Waage Basili, CEO of Shearwater, says: "The ONGC survey stands as a testament to the industry's faith in our forward-thinking technologies, particularly our pioneering Pearl node. Our dedication to transcending traditional survey limits, coupled with our drive to innovate, positions us at the forefront of marine seismic exploration. We're not just conducting surveys; we're redefining what's possible in deepwater exploration and complex environments, charting new courses that could very well reshape industry standards."
