With three large discoveries made in 2020 – Warka, Slagugle, and Bergknapp – the Norwegian Sea continues to prove itself as a world-class petroleum province. According to the NPD, production is expected to increase leading up to 2024, confirming the area as a key exploration hub for many companies.
The first 3D GeoStreamer survey was acquired in the Halten Terrace area of the Norwegian Sea in 2011 and after many more acquisitions and data rejuvenations, PGS is able to offer customers 48 000 sq. km of high-end broadband seismic.
Seven of the 13 discoveries made in the Norwegian Sea in 2020 were covered by GeoStreamer data, showing the interdependency of exploration with advanced acquisition and high-end imaging solutions.
PGS has brought GeoStreamer X technology to the Norwegian Sea with 7 000 sq. km acquired 2022, and more planned for future seasons. This is to meet the geophysical challenges in imaging both the deep and shallow, complex targets in the region. Improved understanding of complex structures will allow operators to make better-informed decisions on prospect ranking and development strategy.
PGS offers two data library product options in the area, the new Norwegian Sea MegaSurvey for large-scale screening, lead and prospect evaluation, and GeoStreamer PURE – over 30 000 sq. km of GeoStreamer data across a prolific fairway.
