By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, May 24
– TGS-NOPEC Geophysical Co. has begun shooting more multiclient 3D seismic in the Hoop fault complex area of the Barents Sea off Norway.

The survey is an extension of the previously announced Hoop fault complex survey and will add 1,800 sq km to existing data in the area. Some 500 sq km of the survey are infill in the northern area of the 2009 survey, and the other 1,300 sq km are an extension to the east of the 2009 survey area.

Blocks have been awarded in the survey area during the last two rounds, and with the 2011 acquisition, TGS will be able to provide extended coverage for future rounds.
