TGS has signed a joint venture agreement with Dolphin Geophysical (DOLP) to acquire 4,500 km(2) 3D multi-client seismic survey over the western part of the Hammerfest Basin in the Barents Sea, Norway.
The survey will provide industry with broadband data over APA acreage not previously covered by modern MC 3D. Successful exploration of remaining resources in this area could provide the key to commercial production developments in this part of the Barents Sea, TGS has said in a statement.
The new survey is based and planned on TGS’ and Dolphin’s existing data and G&G knowledge in this geographical area. The new project links the existing Dolphin’s Gotha 3D survey with TGS’ Finnmark Platform 3D surveys . Dolphin is mobilising M/V Polar Duchess for the project.
