Searcher Seismic expands 3D survey in Barents Sea

Searcher Seismic, an independent multi-client company, has announced Phase 2 of the Silver-Eye Broadband 3D survey in the Barents Sea, offshore Norway.

Following the acquisition of Phase 1; comprising 2,663 square kilometres, Searcher is now acquiring additional broadband 3D data in the area.

According to the multi-client company, Phase 1 of acquisition, completed in September 2015, supported the need for Phase 2.

Acquisition of Phase 2 is scheduled to start in April 2016 with a PSTM data volume being made available in November 2016, the company said.

Phase 1 PSTM data will be available in April 2016 with PSDM available in the third quarter of 2016. Phase 2 final data in both time and depth is expected in early 2017, Searcher Seismic added.

Jan Gunnar Opsal, Country Manager for Searcher Seismic, Norway, said the survey extension covers existing discoveries and vacant acreage within the APA area.

“Searcher is excited to be expanding our 3D library in the Barents Sea and to offer high quality data for evaluating this area of the Hammerfest Basin in the APA, 2017,” Opsal added.
