Seismic acquisition company Spectrum has informed it has started the first phase of a new high-density regional Multi- Client 3D survey, over a 2019 prioritized area of the UK’s Southern North Sea.
As per Spectrum, the survey, which is fully supported and funded by clients, is targeting an area of recently-increased industry focus.
