Asian Geos Mobilises Second Geophysical Survey Vessel, MV Volans

Bintulu – 14 April 2014

Due to an increasing demand for a good and competent geophysical survey vessel to service its clients in the region, Asian Geos (“AG”) mobilises today its second vessel MV Volans to replace the MV Dayang Sari which was off-hired recently.

The 50m long vessel was previously a geotechnical drilling vessel and it has now been converted and equipped as a dedicated geophysical survey vessel to support AG’s geophysical survey operations in Malaysia and the Southeast Asia region. Classed under the Bureau Veritas, Volans has completed the installation of geophysical survey equipment in Singapore for onward sailing to its first Seabed CPT campaign in offshore Sarawak.

Volans is now equipped with an array of geophysical survey equipment, including the 2D High Resolution Seismic System comprising a 96-Channel TTS2+ Prakhla Streamer and TL3 Seismic Acquisition System; while the Analogue Geophysical System comprising the GeoAcoustics 2094D Side Scan Sonar System, Geo-Spark Sparker and applied Acoustics Boomer systems. The Promax QC & Processing System is also available to facilitate onboard processing.

The vessel carries with her the Single Beam Echo-Sounder Dual Echotrac MK III, Valeport Midas (CTD) Profiler. The DGPS positioning system employs the Starpack DGPS. For Underwater Positioning System the Sonardyne Ranger USBL is permanently installed.

Volans is also equipped with the Seabed Sampling System comprising 3 metre Gravity Corer with 400m winch and the Neptune 3000 Seabed CPT.

Volans which is to complement the AG Surveyor that is currently contracted to Petronas Carigali, will be registered in Indonesia. This is in tandem with AG’s planning to operate an Indonesian-flagged geophysical survey vessel to meet with the Indonesian Cabotage law and with the primary purpose of meeting the growing demand for offshore geophysical survey services in Indonesia.
