A consistent team delivers on Kosmos’ global seismic acquisition projects

With multiple seismic survey projects located around the globe, having a project team large enough and with the right expertise to support the technical, commercial, environmental and safety aspects of these projects is key to success. RPS provided a core team of specialists from various departments, collaborating and dedicated to the successful execution of each Kosmos project.

 

From 2015 to 2020 RPS supported Kosmos on deepwater seismic operations including surveys in Morocco, Mauritania, Senegal, Suriname, Sao Tome and Principe, Cote d’Ivoire and Equatorial Guinea. Kosmos needed to ensure that their seismic projects were executed safely, met environmental regulations and delivered the quality of data their exploration teams required. Using personnel from various departments, RPS created a support team for onshore in-country project supervision and field services. Included in the team were technical auditors, marine auditors, lead acquisition quality assurance specialists, navigation quality control specialists, health, safety, environment and security (HSES) quality control specialists, marine fauna observers and passive acoustic monitors (PAM) operators. These specialists, along with the required technical and environmental management software and systems, collaborated on up to three simultaneous operations, covering all back to back crew changes.

This team was supported by RPS’ logistic team, who manage travel, transportation and other logistical needs. On the most recent project, this included the safe repatriation of personnel from two vessels offshore in Sao Tome due to the start of the COVID pandemic.

Over this six year timeline, RPS delivered consistency of personnel across multiple projects for Kosmos that spanned the globe.  We assured that their data acquisition requirements were fulfilled while meeting all health, safety and environmental regulations.
