The contract revenues for the period were $5.5 million, up 112% from Q4 2016 and up 106% relative to Q3 2017.
SeaBird specializes in high quality operations within the high end of the source vessel and 2D market, as well as in the shallow/deep water 2D/3D and 4D market. Main focus for the company is proprietary seismic surveys (contract seismic).
