Sovcomflot tops ranking of best marine seismic contractors


PAO Sovcomflot, represented by its subsidiary SCF GEO, has achieved top ranking amongst “Russia’s best marine seismic contractors 2015”. The results from voting on the ranking were summarized at the “Oil and Gas Shelf 2015” conference held in Moscow on 8 December 2015, where the award ceremony also took place.

Potential suppliers and contractors were evaluated following a survey of major consumers based on their history of interaction. Participants in the voting included representatives of major Russian and foreign companies working on the Russian continental shelf, such as Gazprom, NK Rosneft, NK Lukoil, NOVATEK, Exxon Neftegas Ltd., and others. The survey was organized with the support of the Russian Ministry of Industry and Trade and the Russian Federation Council.

The contest was designed to identify the best suppliers of industrial products and services necessary for the effective and safe development of oil and gas fields on the continental shelf. PAO Sovcomflot, represented by its subsidiary SCF GEO, earned the highest score in the category of “Marine Seismic Acquisition” amongst the 24 Russian and foreign companies that took part in it.

PAO Sovcomflot entered the marine geophysical survey segment in 2011, with its high-tech 3D seismic ice-class vessel Vyacheslav Tikhonov, which is currently the only research ship of this class in Russia. The development of the seismic survey business within the Group is carried out by the company’s subsidiary SCF GEO.

Over the last few years, Vyacheslav Tikhonov has successfully completed a number of seismic studies, including in difficult climatic conditions, for companies such as Sakhalin Energy, Gazprom, NK Rosneft, NK Lukoil, and others.
