OceanGeo BV, a Houston-based
geophysical company specialising in
multicomponent ocean bottom seis-
mic acquisition, announced that it has
been awarded a contract for a 510
square kilometer ocean bottom 3D
seismic survey in the Gulf of Paria
offshore Trinidad for Petrotrin.
Acquisition of the survey began in late
December and is expected to be com-
plete in April or May, the company
said in a release.
Jamaludin Khan, Petrotrin s Vice
President Exploration and Production,
said: "The Gulf of Paria has produced
in excess of 1.5 billion barrels of oil
since 1955 and still has significant
hydrocarbon producing potential.
"Meeting Petrotrin s five-year strate-
gic challenge of reserves replacement
and increased production requires a
new and superior quality seismic data
set in the Gulf of Paria. A best-in-class
ocean bottom seismic 3D survey pro-
vided by OceanGeo will provide the
wide azimuth data we need to identify
deeper Cretaceous plays and bypassed
opportunities adjacent to existing reser-
Colin Hulme, OceanGeo s chief exec-
utive officer, added: "We are extremely
pleased to announce this award. While
we have a new name and ownership,
we have a proven track record of suc-
cessfully acquiring ocean bottom seis-
mic data, safely and efficiently, with
over five years of operation offshore
Brazil, delivering superior reservoir
understanding for our E&P clients.
"We are now pleased to put that
expertise to work for Petrotrin. Ocean
bottom seismic continues to rapidly
grow and gain market share from towed
streamer by meeting oil and gas com-
panies requirements for higher quality
seismic data to better develop and man-
age their reservoirs. With the full sup-
port of our parent companies ION and
Georadar, we are well positioned to
compete and thrive in the growing
ocean bottom seismic market, and we
are truly excited about the future of

National Energy and NESC sign agreement
National Energy further solid-
ified its partnership with the
National Energy Skills Centre
(NESC) recently by participating
in a ceremonial signing at the
NESC head office in Point Lisas.
The signing signalled the con-
tinued collaboration between the
two companies as NESC will pro-
vide essential training for suitable
candidates in the Mayaro/
Guayaguayare community in
preparation for the commence-
ment of operations at Port Gale-
ota in 2014.
National Energy has had a
long-standing partnership with
NESC over the years given
NESC s mandate, to "...provide
the necessary training modeled
around the skill expectations of
new plants targeted for the ener-
gy and energy related industries...
" In 2013, National Energy part-
nered with NESC to provide
roustabout training to 22 persons
from the Mayaro/Guayaguayare
area. In 2014, there will be a pro-
gression for those persons who
received roustabout training as
well as the start of a six-module
stevedoring training programme.
At the ceremony National
Energy president Dr Vernon Pal-
too, expressed his gratitude to
NESC and its president Kern
Dass for their continued support
of National Energy s capacity
