Dolphin Wins Seismic Survey Contract on Petrom Black Sea Block

OMV Petrom SA, Romania’s biggest oil company, awarded a contract of about 95 million euros ($124 million) to a unit of the Oslo-based Dolphin Group AS for seismic surveys in the Black Sea.

Dolphin Geophysical AS will conduct the studies on an offshore block explored by Petrom, according to a European Union procurement document published today.

Austria’s OMV AG, the majority-owner of Petrom, said on Feb. 22 that it discovered what may be its biggest gas find in the Black Sea well it is exploring together with a unit of Exxon Mobil Corp.
