Dolphin Geo Deploys “World’s Largest Floating Object” off Myanmar Coast

Dolphin Geophysical, a supplier of marine geophysical services, has  mobilised the “world’s largest floating object” by deploying a seismic spread of 12 streamers, 7,050 meters in length with 150 meters streamer separation, off the coast of Myanmar for Ophir Energy Plc.

In February, Dolphin was awarded and signed a contract for 3D data acquisition and processing of 10,000 square kilometres with British oil and gas firm Ophir Energy in Myanmar.

This configuration of equipment has a moving width of 1.85 metres and the seismic spread covers a total area of about 12 square km, the Norwegian firm said in a statement.

Bjarne Stavenes, VP Technical, said, “Ophir Energy PLC challenged the industry to provide a cost efficient solution to acquire their large 10,000 square km survey in Myanmar. Dolphin responded by offering this ultra-wide towing solution.

“After a swift mobilisation, Dolphin’s Sanco Sword is now in steady production with acquisition of about 150 square km in a single day. This is believed to be a world record for our industry and we expect Sword to become the benchmark vessel when it comes to productivity going forward.”

Dolphin is also delivering a fast track on-board processing system powered by its proprietary OpenCPS software.
