FugrologoWhiteBackgr4CSeabed Geosolutions has been awarded a 4D baseline ocean bottom node project in West Africa, with a duration of six-weeks.

The crew is currently in the mobilisation phase of the project, which will support the optimisation of the recovery rate during the development and production phases of oil and gas fields, by providing high quality data on hydrocarbon prospects, reservoir characteristics and potential geohazards. The project positions the company well to respond to other potential projects in the region.


Seabed Geosolutions is a joint venture between Fugro and CGG. With a focus on the development and production phases of oil and gas fields, it collects geophysical data on the seabed using an array of imaging technologies.

As announced recently (, its new versatile and ultra-efficient node solution Manta® will be available in the first half of 2017. This state-of-the-art system represents a step change in seabed survey productivity in all configurations and water depths.
