NPD completes seismic acquisition season in northern Barents Sea

The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate reported completion of its seismic acquisition season Aug. 19, nearly a month ahead of schedule.

“Due to good weather and few technical issues, the acquisition was even more efficient than planned,” said Sissel Eriksen, exploration director.

Beginning July 18, NPD acquired about 5,600 km of 2D seismic in the northern Barents Sea. The program followed efforts in the southeastern and northern Barents that began in 2011 (OGJ Online, Aug. 21, 2013).

NPD hired Dolphin Geophysics for the assignment. The Artemis Atlanic seismic vessel conducted the survey and has arrived in Hammerfest for demobilization.
