The survey includes coverage of the Zulu gas discovery, which is close to the giant Johan Sverdrup discovery. It also highlights the hydrocarbon potential in the Miocene Utsira Formation sand and uncovers a new exciting play type in the area.
Interpretation of the final 3D volume has revealed several promising leads at numerous stratigraphic intervals including the potential for spill migration from proven fields further west.
