Geospace Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ:GEOS) today announced that it received an order from a subsidiary of Seafloor Geophysical Solutions Holdings Ltd (“SGS”) for a marine data acquisition system comprised of 2,304 stations of the company’s OBX deep water seafloor nodes and related equipment. SGS is a newly organized marine geophysical contractor with management located in Norway.

“SGS is pleased to place this order with Geospace Technologies. The long life nodes are ideal for our data acquisition objectives and will be used on our first crew starting operations in the second calendar quarter of 2014. Combined with SGS' proprietary node handling system, the versatility and flexibility of the system will enable us to operate competitively in all water depths down to 3000 meters,” said Michael Scott, SGS’ Chief Executive Officer.

“We are pleased that SGS has selected our nodal technology for their seafloor data acquisition needs. Our OBX marine nodal technology has been successfully deployed on various marine ocean bottom seismic surveys across the globe. We are committed to supporting SGS’ marine data acquisition efforts as they enter in this important sector of the geophysical industry,” said Gary D. Owens, Geospace’s President and CEO.

Seafloor Geophysical Solutions is a marine geophysical company focusing on seafloor data acquisition, initially OBS (Ocean Bottom Seismic).
