Our 2020 Hammerfest extension survey, PGS20001NBS, will cover parts of the southern Loppa High and a portion of the Hammerfest Basin west of our PGS18M04NBS survey. The data will be acquired using a similar survey configuration to the 2018 acquisition showcased in our Barents Sea case study but towing the sources even wider to obtain even more near offsets.
The technical set-up, which includes wide source spread, high density streamers and long tails for FWI, has been tailored for precise imaging of extremely shallow targets but also targets at deeper levels. This will result in a superior dataset in a challenging and prospective area of the Barents Sea.
The survey area includes open acreage included in the APA2020 and held acreage.
The survey will be acquired with Ramform Tethys. This ultra-high-capacity seismic vessel can operate a highly effective spread with variable streamer lengths that include a sparse set of long streamers for FWI-based velocity model building.
This acquisition and imaging concept offers the flexibility to address exploration challenges in the Barents Sea, as well as other basins with complex geological regimes around the world, where wide-tow source configurations are the preferred operational solution.
