Norway sells 3D seismic data from area southeast of Troll

The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) is selling 3D seismic data from an area southeast of Troll field, block 31/5 as well as a small part of Block 31/4, located in the North Sea. 

The NPD, a  government agency whose task is to manage the oil and gas resources on the Norwegian Continental Shelf, acquired the seismic data in September 2008. The vessel used was the Ramform Challenger. The seismic data was processed by CGG in 2008/2009 and it covers 300 km2 FF.

The agency explained on Tuesday that the reason for the seismic data sale is to make data easily accessible to the industry in all phases of activities on the NCS, which is part of the NPD’s overall assignment.

The name of the survey, undertaken to map the subsurface for potential CO2 storage sites, is NPD-TW-08-3D-TROLLCO2.

In 2009, this work was transferred from the NPD to GASSNOVA. GASSNOVA continued the work and acquired an additional 3D survey to the south – a direct extension of the NPD-TW-08-3D-TROLLCO2.

The price of the seismic package is NOK 1,518,000 ($179,900) plus VAT, cf. the terms of sale (price for one company). The data will be distributed by DISKOS.
