IPC/Sodra Petroleum, operators of a production licence for Tranche F in the North Falkland Basin with partners Desire Petroleum, have awarded a contract to Veritas, a geophysical services company, to acquire 2000km of 2D seismic data in the North Falkland Basin.
Veritas will deploy their vessel R/V New Venture which is currently surveying in Mauritanian waters off west Africa. The New Venture plans to start surveying in the North Falkland Basin in late December.
The Falkland Islands Government welcomes investment that companies are making to acquire new infill data that will add to the geological understanding of the area.
