RE: "I think $2.6B buy a lot of seismic work."
For a number of years, I Tendered to bid and evaluated bids for offshore seismic surveys.
But, the operations part of my career ended in 1985 .... and I have now been retired for 21 years and my days as a 'wage slave' are long over. I used to work for money (and the pleasure of the job); now my money works for me (and I still have the pleasure of hanging around the fringes). Thus I have no idea as to current survey costs.
However (even in 2023), 2.6B must still buy a lot of seismic work.
