Second CGG multi-client survey in Norway offers new seismic footprint in Barents Sea
PARIS -- CGG has successfully completed a second BroadSeis multi-client survey offshore Norway. The survey covers a 2,300 km2 area in the Barents Sea. Fast-track processing deliverables will be available by the end of 2013 and final processing products by August 2014.
This second BroadSeis 3D survey is located in the southeastern part of the Barents Sea adjacent to the recent eastward extension of Norwegian territory as a result of the border agreement between Norway and Russia. New data is required to assess the petroleum potential in this region.
The Barents Sea BroadSeis survey follows on from CGG’s recent first BroadSeis multi-client survey offshore Norway which targeted the Halten Terrace. Industry has shown strong interest in this new multi-client data acquired with CGG’s broadband technology. Initial results show a significant improvement in the imaging of deeper targets.
