Monday, March 28, 2011

Singapore, 28 March 2011 – ST Marine has successfully delivered its first Seismic Survey Vessel to Swire  Pacific  Offshore  Operations  (Pte)  Ltd  (Swire),  a  wholly  owned  subsidiary  of  Swire  Pacific Limited. 
 
In December  2008,  ST Marine  announced  the S$30m  contract  to  provide  detailed  design  and  to construct  the 68-metre Vessel  for Swire. Work  commenced  in 2009. The  contract  from Swire was awarded on  the back of a charter which Swire secured with a major player  in  the seismic market. Swire provided  the basic design and major equipment,  including  the seismic survey equipment  for the Vessel.
 
The 68.0m by 17.4m Vessel, equipped with 2 units of medium speed diesel engines of 2880KW each was designed and constructed in compliance with  the  rules and  regulations of American Bureau of Shipping  (ABS).  The  Vessel,  named Pacific  Finder,  carries  the  ABS  Class  Notation  +A1,  +AMS, ACCU, E and  Ice D0. The Vessel also complies with  the  latest  International Maritime Organization (IMO) MSC.266 (84) Code of Safety for Special Purpose Ships, 2008.
 
Pacific Finder, a 4-streamer Vessel, is to be deployed to carry out marine seismic survey in shallow waters  for  oil  and  gas  clients  in  the Asia Pacific  region.  The  seismic  survey  vessel  is  capable  of sailing  at  a  select  “survey  speed”  through  the  water  with  the  hull  and  propulsion  characteristics designed to produce low wake field turbulence while the survey is carried out.
