Integrated seismic, gravity, and magnetic (SGM) interpretation
Seismic volcano stratigraphy
Petroleum implications of sill intrusions
Focus along the margins of the north Atlantic and Arctic oceans
Work also encompasses volcanic basins world-wide, e.g. South Africa, India, Australia, Siberia, Argentina and Brazil
New 24R licenses are soon awarded and amazingly many high-impact wells are soon drilled in the Barents Sea. Following the successful high-resolution 3D acquisition on Wisting in 2016, operators now prepare (contingent on exploration success) for P-Cable acquisition.
In the event P-Cable mobilize in the Barents Sea this summer, we intend to utilize remaining capacity to expand our MC P-Cable library, preferably in APA-terrains with shallow reservoirs. Companies are invited to nominate survey areas (strict confidentiality guaranteed).
Calibration of database acquired in 2014 (BSS14) and development of workflow for improved identification of hydrocarbon phase and ranking of exploration targets in undrilled areas.
