Spectrum has started the first phase of a new high-density regional multi-client 3D survey in the UK’s Southern North Sea.
The survey, which is fully supported and funded by clients, is targeting an area of recently-increased industry focus.
It aims to provide improved imaging of the under-explored Zechstein, Carboniferous and Devonian plays in the Southern North Sea.
Industry’s response to the OGA’s Maximising Economic Recovery (MER) initiative has supported Spectrum’s survey concept for the area and forms part of a ‘multi-year’ plan of data coverage of which the initial 1,400 sq.km has just began.
Clients will receive processed data before the end of 2019 following their involvement throughout the testing and processing phase of the project, Spectrum noted.
