Ship history

ULSTEIN designed six seismic survey vessels which were delivered to WesternGeco in the time period 2009-10. All the six vessels are based on the SX124 design. Two vessels were constructed at Drydocks World - Dubai, and four were built at Barreras, Spain.

The vessels ranged by delivery date:
