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
