WGP announced that it has completed the fifteenth Life of Field Seismic (“LoFS”) survey over the Valhall field in the North Sea for BP. This is the fourth LoFS at Valhall to be carried out using the Group’s Portable Modular Source System (PMSS™).
As per previous surveys, the PMSSTM was mobilised onto the M/V Stril Myster, a field platform supply vessel that is converted into a seismic source vessel for the duration of the project. In total the full data set of 2,552km of data was acquired in 6 weeks, including time for mobilisation and demobilisation, during what was a particularly busy period of field activity in and adjacent to the Valhall producing area.
Duncan Soukup, Chairman of Thalassa Holdings Ltd, said: “BP has, rightly, commended the WGP team for their professionalism in acquiring the data which will assist with the continued operations on the Valhall Field. I am particularly pleased that the company’s work is key to enhancing the life of the Valhall field and look forward to the sixteenth LoFS 2013.”
