Norwegian seismic company SeaBird Exploration has received a letter of intent for the exclusive provision of source vessel services for an ocean bottom node (OBN) survey.

The survey will take place in the Eastern Hemisphere, said the global provider of marine acquisition for 2D/3D and 4D seismic data, and associated products and services to the oil and gas industry.

The survey is expected to start in Q1 2020, with an approximate duration of 60 - 90 days.
