Norwegian marine geophysical company, PGS, has informed it will cover Aasta Hansteen area, in the Norwegian Sea, in 2016. 

In May 2016, PGS will start acquisition of a new 4 400 sq. km 3D GeoStreamer survey over the Aasta Hansteen area. The survey is scheduled to be completed in August 2016.

Fast track data will be available four months after the final shot, the geophysical company said.

This prefunded MultiClient project is situated on the Nyk High in the outer Vøring area. It addresses imaging challenges caused by deep water and structurally complex geology, due to several episodes of rifting, compression and subsidence, PGS said.

PGS also said it would use its newest flagship, the Ramform Tethys, to deploy a deep-tow acquisition configuration of 16 streamers with 75 m separation.

According to the company, the application of GeoStreamer technology will improve seismic velocity estimation, and imaging of the structures beneath the basaltic dykes and sills. It will also boost signal penetration of the remobilized ooze that besets this area.
