UK: West of Shetlands Erlend basin seismic set

By OGJ editors

TGS-NOPEC Geophysical Co. has begun shooting the first phase of a 3D seismic survey in the Erlend basin north of the Shetland Islands on the UK Continental Shelf.

The 3,210 sq km survey is the basin’s first multiclient 3D shoot and covers open blocks that were offered in the UKCS 27th round. The survey area adjoins a northern North Sea 3D survey shot in 2011.

The new 3D data expands on TGS' Northern North Sea 3D survey making a total contiguous volume exceeding 10,000 sq km. Second phase acquisition take place during the 2012 season, and processed data will be available for delivery and licensing in the second quarter of 2013.
