WesternGeco commences IsoMetrix multi-client seismic survey in Barents Sea

GATWICK -- WesternGeco today announced that it has begun acquisition of its Ice Bear 2 multi-client 3D survey in the western Barents Sea using its new IsoMetrix marine isometric seismic technology. The isometric inline and crossline sampling delivered by the IsoMetrix technology will provide high-resolution broadband imaging in this geologically complex area.

Celine Blachere, the company’s vice president of Europe, Africa, Russia and Caspian, said the survey aims to improve understanding of the play’s potential and the economic viability for hydrocarbon production in the region.

Ice Bear 2 lies to the north of the WesternGeco BjØrnØya Ice Bear and West Loppa 3D seismic survey areas where the Havis and Skrugard discoveries were made. Exploration and production activities in the region have increased as a result of these and other discoveries in the area.
