CGG has been awarded a major project by Lundin Energy Norway AS for the seismic imaging of an innovative simultaneous node and streamer 3D survey currently being acquired over a 3700 km² area of the Nordkapp basin in the Barents Sea.
Emperor Energy has announced positive initial 3D Seismic Data results from its 100% owned Judith Gas Field in the offshore Gippsland Basin.
The Sydney-based explorer said its team of consulting geologists and geophysicists were currently doing analysis of the multi-client 3D seismic data acquired in the VIC/P47 Permit in mid-2020 by CGG. This follows an independent resource statement completed on 11 July 2019.
PGS seismic vessel Ramform Titan has begun acquisition of the Cape Anguille program, in partnership with TGS. This program expands the PGS-TGS joint venture with another 10 000km² of GeoStreamer 3D coverage in Newfoundland’s prospective Orphan Basin.
The survey covers existing lease blocks and open acreage. Acquisition is expected to complete mid-September 2021. PGS will deliver fast-track results in November 2021, and final imaging and interpretation products in Q1 2022.
Shearwater GeoServices has commenced the second and significantly larger phase of ION Geophysical’s 11,000km² UK Mid North Sea High 3D seismic survey program using the Oceanic Vega.
Shearwater said the Mid North Sea High’s proximity to shore and existing energy infrastructure supports lower development costs, making it an attractive development region for companies both within the oil and gas and the low carbon energy sectors.
The acquisition of this large data set, prioritizing...
Sercel has announced the launch of GPR300, a new nodal seismic acquisition solution specially designed for deployment in shallow waters down to depths of 300 meters.
Developed in partnership with BGP, the new solution expands Sercel’s existing GPRNT range which includes GPR1500 for high-end deepwater subsurface imaging.
Compact and lightweight, GPR300 features Sercel’s unique QuietSeis® broadband digital sensor technology for ultra-quiet performance and unmatched digital...
PGS and Joseph Exploration (JEX) have announced a technical collaboration in the West Cameron protraction area, Gulf of Mexico, USA.
Under the agreement, PGS will provide seismic data from the MultiClient 3D Flex Trend dataset for prospect development work to be undertaken by JEX. The prospect development work will benefit from collaboration between PGS processing and imaging experts and the JEX technical team.
The study area in West Cameron is a subset of the PGS Flex Trend dataset...
Shearwater GeoServices has been awarded a 4D monitoring contract for towed streamer seismic acquisition in the Campos Basin offshore Brazil.
The 3D and 4D programs will be conducted over 9-months by the SW Empress, over the Marlim, Albacora, and Voador fields, starting late in the second quarter of 2021, Shearwater said.
4D time-lapse seismic monitoring is a key reservoir management tool and Shearwater described itself as a “technology and market leader in 4D towed streamer...
With shares trading at an eight-year peak and aiming higher, Elixir Energy has provided an update on its largest exploration program to date in Mongolia.
The Adelaide-headquartered explorer launched the exploration and appraisal program across its 100%-owned Nomgon IX CBM PSC, where the spudding of two exploration wells is imminent.
The first well in the 2021 drilling program, Yangir-2, has just been finished and the Yangir depocenter has proven to be highly fractured and hosting of...
A consortium led by CGG has been selected by the European Space Agency’s Space Solutions initiative to undertake a study aimed at developing new environmental monitoring technology and services to help combat the global marine litter crisis.
CGG will collaborate with Mott MacDonald, a global engineering, management and development consultancy, and Brunel University London to develop innovative new environmental monitoring solutions based on CGG’s analysis and processing of Earth...
Shearwater has been awarded a 3D seismic survey by a major operator in Vietnam. The two-and-a-half-month project will commence in April 2021 and will be conducted by the SW Vespucci.
“This award contributes to an already strong portfolio of projects in the Asia Pacific region announced in recent weeks as market conditions improve”, said Irene Waage Basili, CEO of Shearwater GeoServices.
The marine geophysical services company has established experience in Vietnam and has...
