Singapore-based offshore specialist Nordic Maritime, in collaboration with Sovcomflot (SCF Geo), has been awarded a USD $23.5 million contract to provide 3D marine seismic data acquisition and processing services off the east coast of India to Cairn India Limited, starting later this month.
The contract will involve the use of the 2011-built, Ulstein-designed, 8-streamer seismic survey vessel, Vyacheslav Tikhonov.
During the course of the project, which is scheduled to commence this Saturday, the Vyacheslav Tikhonov will survey approximately 1,023 sq km of sea floor over the course of three months and include the acquisition of gravity and magnetic data alongside the seismic data near Nizamapatnam Bay.
To support the 3D data acquisition programme, Nordic and SCF Geo will charter and mobilize a supply ship and 10 chase vessels locally from Indian owners.
Nordic Maritime’s Chief Executive Officer, Kjell Gauksheim commented on the award: “This award from Cairn Energy for work offshore India is naturally exciting for Nordic and our partners. We are pleased to be entrusted with it and we will perform as always to our established high standards. We believe there are more opportunities like this in the region and we are open to more contracts of this sort in future.”

RUSSIA in CLOSE-UP: Navy star



Petr Velikiy (Peter the Great), the heavy nuclear-powered missile cruiser responsible for successfully escorting the first batch of Syrian chemical weapons out of the war-torn country, is Russia’s most powerful battleship and the flagship of the Northern Fleet. It is the only Russian watercraft with sufficient capability to thwart large-scale attacks by cruise and ballistic missiles. The warships of this type are designed to search for and engage enemy ballistic missile submarines, as well as large surface targets, and provide air and antisubmarine protection to naval forces.

Powerful Russian subs to guard Black sea and Mediterranean basin



Russian Black Sea Fleet will receive six submarines as a part of the 636.3 Project until 2016. Three submarines will be available to sailors this year. These are diesel-electric submarines: "Novorossiysk", "Rostov-on-Don”, "Stary Oskol." They belong to the third generation class of ships "Varshavyanka" (NATO – Kilo classification). This is what experts make of technical features and possibilities of the new submarines: http://ift.tt/1e5hfUC
