Norway: Dolphin, Searcher Seismic Begin 3D Multi-Client Survey in Barents Sea

Dolphin Geophysical in co-operation with Searcher Seismic are about to commence acquisition of 2,000 km2 of high-resolution 3D Multi-Client data over open acreage in the Barents Sea using Dolphin’s 12 streamer high capacity 3D seismic vessel, Polar Duke.

The blocks and data coverage were nominated and designed for the upcoming 22 governmental licensing round in Norway, by pre-committing clients working close with Dolphin and Searcher designing the Multi-Client program.

Searcher Seismic, Geir Helgesen Sales & Business Manager commented, “following the success of the recent high resolution 2D survey a focused area will be covered by the 3D, which will for the first time offer a 3D high resolution image of the Byornoya fault complex”.

Ian T. Edwards, VP Global Multi-Client at Dolphin said, “we are pleased to be able to establish Dolphin as a new 3D seismic Multi Client data provider in the highly attractive Barents Sea region. We fully utilize the 12 streamer capacity of Polar Duke, to minimize acquisition time and combined with fast track processing, the attractive data will be provided to clients prior to the 22 licensing round”.

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
