Seismic Exploration Ships

Ramform Titan seismic exploration ship. 342 feet long and 230 feet wide, tows 24 seismic streamers.
The search for oil continues. Now they are mapping vast areas of the sea floor using arrays of sonic sensors towed behind ships, ships that are custom built for the purpose. Fat Albert (above) is the latest model. PGS is the company behind this ship.

Polarcus Amani
The Polarcus Amani is a more conventional looking ship, but it was built specifically for this purpose as well.
