Large, modern dataset covering the western Hammerfest Basin
Website Map for Survey Ringvassøy 3D
The survey targets the Ringvassøy-Loppa fault complex region west of the Hammerfest Basin and east of the Tromsø Basin.
The survey provides regional broadband coverage and improves understanding of multiple under-explored plays in a frontier exploration area, including the Jurassic, Cretaceous and shallower Cenozoic.
Past discoveries prove a working petroleum system in an area not previously covered by modern MultiClient 3D seismic.
