As per Spectrum, the survey, which is fully supported and funded by clients, is targeting an area of recently-increased industry focus.

“[The survey] aims to provide improved imaging of the under-explored Zechstein, Carboniferous and Devonian plays in the Southern North Sea.  Industry’s response to the OGA’s Maximising Economic Recovery (MER) initiative has supported Spectrum’s survey concept for the area and forms part of a ‘multi- year’ plan of data coverage of which the initial 1,400 sq.km has just commenced,” Spectrum said.

The company said the clients would receive processed data before the end of 2019 following their involvement throughout the testing and processing phase of the project. Spectrum has told Offshore Energy Today that the vessel being used for the project Akademik Primakov, owned by Rosgeo.

Spectrum, listed on the Oslo-exchange, has recently entered into an agreement to be acquired by TGS.

Completion of the merger is subject to approval by extraordinary general meetings in Spectrum and TGS, expected to be held on or about June 21, 2019.
