CGG has announced a western extension of the Horda BroadSeis-BroadSource 3D multi-client program, which it began acquiring in the Northern North Sea, offshore Norway, in 2014. The extension, known as Tampen, is in the Northern Viking Graben, offshore Norway and the UK, and is expected to be completed in 2016. It will add a further 17,000 km2 of data to the initial 18,000-km2 Horda survey that CGG will complete this season, to provide a total of 35,000 km2 of contiguous and uniform broadband seismic data coverage in one of the world’s most prolific petroleum provinces. The Tampen survey will cover a mature, high-potential area encompassing fields, such as Statfjord, Gullfaks, Snorre and Osberg in Norway, in addition to several fields in the UK.
