Figure comparing conventional 3D seismic and P-Cable seismic in the Hoop area. High-resolution P-Cable 3D data reveals superior imaging of reservoir sequences across leads in 23R and 24R blocks in the Barents Sea. Both datasets are processed using TGS Clari-Fi™ method.
VBPR has led the development of the P-Cable high-resolution 3D seismic technology since 2001, and co-founded the P-Cable 3D Seismic AS (P3S) company in 2008. P3S was sold to the Houston-based company NCS Subsea in July 2016. VBPR is the co-owner of an extensive multi-client P-Cable data base in the Barents and Norwegian seas, and will continue to work with P-Cable data to develope multi-client surveys world-wide.
