SeaBird Exploration has signed a contract to acquire a 2-D seismic survey for an international oil and gas company in the Africa region on Sept. 19.

The survey is due to commence towards the end of September and is estimated to run for approximately three weeks. The company will be using the Nordic Explorer for the work.

The 2-D survey in the Africa region fits well with the previously reported 10,000 km (6,213 miles) 2-D contract in Australasia region securing back-to-back utilization of the Nordic Explorer in fourth-quarter 2019 and for most of first-quarter 2020.
