HOUSTON, Apr. 1
-- Bahamas Petroleum Co. PLC signed a letter of award with CGGVeritas for a 3D seismic survey of at least 1,500 sq km on BPC’s Southern license area in Atlantic off the Bahamas.

Contract details are to be finalized this month, and shooting will begin in May 2011. The Veritas Viking vessel will acquire the seismic using 10 streamers incorporating BroadSeis technology for the first time in the Americas. Fast-track interpretation is planned.

The licenses lie between Andros Island and Cuba (see map, OGJ, July 13, 2009, p. 34).
