High-capacity 3D Seismic Vessel

  20/05/2011
Dolphon Group's 3D vessel Polar Duke entered into production on 19th May 2011 on her first project for TGS Nopec ASA in the Norwegian sector of the Barents Sea. Polar Duke was taken on charter in Stavanger on 10th May and mobilised directly on prospect in less than ten days and is presently operating with 10 streamers of 6,000 metres length.

 

Polar Duke 

The new purpose-built vessel, has a long and slim design that allows for high transit speed and focuses on maximum fuel efficiency. She has already proven very strong towing capacity, speed, sea capabilities and exceptional manoeuvring characteristics.

 

Atle Jacobsen, CEO commented; "In 5 months from establishing Dolphin Geophysical AS, we have succeeded in bringing the high capacity 3D vessel Polar Duke into operation in one of the most promising exploration areas of the world. This is a strong proof of our capabilities and an important milestone in developing Dolphin Geophysical."

Spill Response Baseline Survey

 

CSIRO from Australia is undertaking a survey tour towards the Australian Bight for a baseline survey looking for oil traces in the water. The surveyors are deploying a CTD and a gravity corer measuring possible traces of oil in the water column. The survey mission also consists of hydrographic mapping techniques, GIS and environmental specialists to make sure the situation before exploration is mapped well in order to know what the environmental consequences of an eventual oil seepage or leak may consist of.
