Hydro Morocco has awarded a contract worth approximately NOK 85 million to the Norwegian seismic acquisition company Fugro-Geoteam.

Fugro will perform a 3D marine acquisition survey off the coast of Morocco, northwest of Safi.

The survey comprises approximately 2,200 square kilometres for which Fugro’s flagship vessel, the R/V Geo Pacific, is being used.

The R/V Geo Pacific will tow a wide spread of six streamers, each 6,000 metres long, with 150 metre streamer separation, allowing efficient acquisition of this 3D exploration survey.

The work is expected to begin in November 2005.
