RXT refocuses OBC strategy

Norwegian company Reservoir Exploration Technology (RXT) is refocusing its ocean bottom cable (OBC) seismic operations to meet expected demand for its services in the North Sea, Gulf of Mexico, and most of West Africa.

The company has announced the appointment of Kim Gunn Maver as vice president of sales and marketing, and Fredd Causevic as vice president of business development, both based in the company’s headquarters in Oslo, Norway.

The new strategy follows RXT’s successful formation of GeoRXT, a joint venture with the major Brazilian oil and gas services company Georadar. Under the agreement, in which Georadar has a 55% holding, the joint venture will have exclusive marketing rights in the highly prospective Brazilian offshore, as well as the rest of South America, Angola, and some areas of the Middle East.

Stein Hedemark, RXT’s CEO, said: ‘Now that the joint venture is up and running it makes sense for us to target our resources in those areas where there is already an established market for OBC. It is in this context that we have brought Kim Gunn Maver and Fredd Causevic into the management team. In fact we are seeing increased interest in our seafloor multi-component seismic acquisition technology. The high resolution imaging we provide cannot be matched by towed streamers, and oil companies are realizing this. With OBC seismic imaging our clients can significantly improve understanding of their reservoirs and as a result optimize production from their existing assets.’

Kim Gunn Maver joins RXT from Schlumberger where his positions include vice president of reservoir seismic services. He was managing director of Ødegaard, the Danish seismic reservoir characterization company until it was acquired by Schlumberger in 2006. He holds a PhD in geology and an executive MBA.

Fredd Causevic came to RXT last year as senior sales manager. Previous senior management positions include managing director, Northern Europe for Thorn EMI, and president and CEO at both Otrum and the Impact Europe Group. He holds degrees in business administration and marketing.
