OMV Petrom SA (SNP), 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 (DOLP) 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.
