The transaction was completed following receipt of relevant regulatory approvals and satisfaction of customary closing conditions.

“We are now an industry-leading full-range geophysical services company with a solid financial and strategic platform. We are eager to move ahead as one strong combined business with global reach, critical mass and long-term viability and look forward to providing our customers with high-quality acquisition services and technologies”, says Irene Waage Basili, the CEO of Shearwater.

The transaction makes Shearwater a global, customer-focused and technology-driven provider of marine geophysical services, which owns and operates a fleet of 14 fully equipped seismic vessels offering a full range of acquisition services including 3D, 4D and ocean bottom seismic (OBS). Shearwater develops and offers high quality processing and imaging services.

The acquisition and related transactions were executed in accordance with the 22 August 2018 announcement, including an additional USD 50 million cash injection to Shearwater for working capital purposes. Going forward, Shearwater has three strong and complementary owners with RASMUSSENGRUPPEN AS holding 65%, GC Rieber Shipping ASA 20% and Schlumberger 15%.

“We have a strong balance sheet with the sector’s lowest debt per vessel and a leading cost position, which together with our technology and highly skilled people provide significant competitive advantages”, said Irene Waage Basili.
