PGS kicks off Viking Graben extension project

first_imgFurthermore, PGS says it offers a efficiency gain and reduced environmental footprint compared to node-based exploration. This industry-funded project further extends the GeoStreamer X area within the Viking Graben by 1160 square kilometres. It also builds on the 2019 GeoStreamer X pilot project in the same area. PGS seismic vessel Ramform Vanguard has begun a new multi-azimuth marine seismic survey in the North Sea. Norwegian seismic player said the first data is due in the third quarter 2020. The GeoStreamer X Viking Graben 2020 extension project will again combine three acquisition directions with PGS’ latest technology. “Our GeoStreamer X Viking Graben pilot clearly demonstrated the positive project economics and the illumination uplift that can be achieved with multi-azimuth GeoStreamer data on NCS. center_img The Ramform Vanguard will tow 14 streamers, including two 10 km-long tails to offset FWI, and a wide-tow multisource. “That is why, even in these difficult times, the market is willing to support an extension of the GeoStreamer X coverage area.” This configuration will deliver close to zero offsets, for optimal near-offset sampling and shallow imaging. In addition, the setup provides dense spatial sampling for high-resolution imaging and also improved illumination Gunhild Myhr, VP New Ventures at PGS, said:last_img read more

Aribo: Nigeria’s switch, no brainer

first_imgRelatedPosts Super Eagles soar on FIFA ranking FIFA ranking: Nigeria moves up by two spots, now world 29th Omeruo welcomes second child Rangers midfielder Joe Aribo has admitted that the decision to play for Nigeria rather than England at international level was a “no brainer” after growing up watching Super Eagles icons such as Jay-Jay Okocha and Kanu.The Ibrox star has made a huge impression already after scoring just three minutes into his debut and forcing manager Gernot Rohr into a stunning selection u-turn.Aribo’s parents are Nigerian and, despite the player being born in London, he opted to play for the Super Eagles ahead of the Three Lions – before quickly being compared with Okocha after his debut against Ukraine earlier this month.“I could have played for England but my parents are from Nigeria and I always watched players like Jay-Jay Okocha and Nwankwo Kanu as a kid so it was a no brainer to play for them,” Aribo said, as quoted by the Evening Times.“I read the headline where a journalist compared me to Okocha after the Ukraine game – that’s putting a lot of pressure on me!”Aribo will now face Brazil in a friendly in Singapore before the upcoming AFCON qualifiers against Benin and Lesotho.After his quick rise in international football, hopefully, Aribo can continue to impress and put in a stellar performance against the Brazilians.The comparisons with stars such as Okocha will put some lofty expectations on Aribo’s shoulders for his country but it could really help him grow as a player and help him get used to the pressure he’s under constantly at Rangers.Tags: jj okochaJoe AriboSuper Eagleslast_img read more

Farfan & Mendes Men’s first division hockey league Old Fort suffers back-to-back defeats

first_imgIT was tough going for the Old Fort men last weekend as they were made to endure two losses in as many matches against Bounty GCC and the Pepsi Hikers in the Farfan & Mendes Men’s First Division League.On Friday afternoon at Bourda, Old Fort took the field against an energized Bounty GCC,playing in front of a vociferous home crowd.The match seemed as though it would be an easy one for GCC as Old Fort,without a few of its senior members, succumbed to a Mark Sargeant field goal just 3 minutes into play and Kevin Spencer added a second for the Bourda side ten minutes later.Just as the match seemed to be getting out of Old Fort’s reach however, Old Fort’s Aderemi Simon, pushed into the forward line,produced two moments of pure brilliance.In the 22nd minute of play, Simon received a long pass from defence, turned past his marker and outpaced the GCC defence to blast a bullet of a shot into the GCC net. Simon would repeat this feat five minutes later for his own and his team’s second goal of the match to take the score into half time at 2-2.GCC’s pressure in the second half proved too much for Old Fort and their defensive fortitude eventually collapsed, conceding six more unanswered goals to end the match with an 8-2 GCC victory. Spencer managed a helmet-trick for GCC while Shaquille Leung scored a double and Kareem McKenzie a single.The very next afternoon saw Old Fort return to the field against tournament leader,Pepsi Hikers. This matched proved even more one-sided as the Hikers drowned their opposition by 9-0. While Old Fort managed to keep the game scoreless for sixteen minutes, the Hikers seemed threatening from the start. Midfielder Shane Samuels was the highest scorer of the match with a hat-trick, Andrew Stewart scored a double while Robert France, Randy Hope, Kevin Fogenay and Tivesard Garnett each added one.Matches continued yesterday with Bounty GCC vs Saints HC at Saints ground from 16.30hrs.last_img read more
