Norway: Halten terrace 3D spec survey under way

CGG has begun shooting the 3-month first phase of the Steppingstone multiclient 3D seismic survey in the North Sea offshore central Norway.

The broadband survey is to cover 2,260 sq km over the Halten terrace and targets the southern trend of producing Jurassic reservoirs and discoveries in the Cretaceous, the contractor said. Acquisition and processing parameters are optimized to focus on providing better imaging of prospective Jurassic rotated fault blocks, inversion anticlines, and shallow targets.

The survey is expected to open up potentially prospective late Cretaceous-Tertiary turbidite plays to the west.
