Large seismic survey starts offshore Norway

CGG has begun shooting the largest broadband multiclient seismic survey it has conducted in Northwest Europe and what it calls the largest multiclient 3D survey ever shot by any company offshore Norway.

The 19,000-sq km survey will cover more than 80 production licenses in the North Sea between the Horda platform in the southeast to the Sogn graben in the north. The area covers all of Quadrant 35 and parts of Quadrants 31, 32, and 36, including the Troll, Brage, Fram, and Gjoa licenses.

Responding to increased exploratory interest due to recent discoveries in the Horda area, the survey aims to provide a large, uniform dataset with increased seismic resolution, CGG said.

Data acquisition by the Viking Vanquish seismic vessel, to be joined later by a second vessel, will continue into 2015.
