New Schlumberger Seismic Vessel Sets String of Records

Monday, August 23, 1999
Schlumberger announced its new seismic vessel, Geco Eagle, has successfully been deployed for her first acquisition job and has broken several world records in the process. The vessel left the shipyard where it was built in Bergen, Norway, and traveled halfway around the globe to Brazil - a distance of 6,359 miles - to take up her first job in the Campos and Santos basins on behalf of Amerada Hess and partners. This is the most remote startup ever undertaken by any seismic acquisition vessel. Geco Eagle then took fewer than seven days between deploying the first streamer section and recording the first commercial 10-streamer production. Now in full production, Geco Eagle continues to set new standards for the seismic industry. She is the first vessel in the world to deploy 60 kilometers of streamer. With 10 19,684.8 ft. streamers in tow, Geco Eagle has achieved the biggest single vessel tow ever, as well as the largest footprint ever recorded.
