BACKGROUND

Crew AG02 is a deep desert 3D seismic crew established in 2003 with brand new instruments and camp equipment. At the end of 2007 a 428XL recorder and brand new line equipment was purchased to replace the 408CMXL recorder. The crews (12) Nomad 65 Vibrators are less than 2 years old.

The crew is fully self sufficient with its own diesel and water tankers as well as cargo and freezer trucks. It has two fully fitted kitchens, two shower trailers, HSE, QC, Client, Party Manager, Survey and Observer Offices, Mechanical, Vibrator and Geophone workshops, Clinic and numerous accommodation trailers.

The crew has worked for many oil companes since its creation on both 2D and 3D operations in all types of terrain. Client oil companies have included Waha Oil Company, Veba Oil Operations Libya, AGOCO, Woodside Energy, Total E&P Libye, Teikoku and Verenex Energy. Local and international staff work together with a professionalism and expertise to handle any task.

Crew organization follows industry norms. The crew is run by a Party Manager (Party Cheif) with each section run by a section head. HSE and administrative resources are supervised by the crew HSEA and Camp Boss.
