Norwegian seismic surveyor SeaBird Exploration said it had taken delivery of the Geowave Voyager from France's CGG, and the vessel has been renamed Eagle Explorer.

The vessel was acquired fully rigged with 40km streamer and dual source, for $17 million and a NOK 120 million private placement.

As part of the purchase agreement, SeaBird will have a preferred supplier status with CGG when using the Eagle Explorer.

SeaBird and CGG have entered into a 160-day contract for the vessel, operating as a source vessel, with options for CGG to extend.

The vessel will go to work starting in December, after completing class renewal.
