    SeaBird partners with Searcher Seismic Pty Ltd for SnÝspurv survey

    Company News // December 29, 2012

    SeaBird Exploration Plc has partnered with Searcher Seismic Pty Ltd on the 12,000km SnÝspurv 2D high resolution seismic survey. The multi-client survey covers the Bjarmeland platform in the Barents Sea.

    The survey is scheduled to commence in the second quarter of 2013 and is estimated to take four months to complete.

    The platform area consists of several play types already proven in other parts of the Barents Sea. The survey will be undertaken to target the prospective Triassic-Jurassic sections to the south and west. In addition, the Carboniferous/Permian and the Triassic section will be the main exploration targets to the northern part of the survey area.

    No exploration wells have been drilled to date in the Bjarmeland Platform, despite covering an area of almost 35,000 km2.

    As well as unlocking the potential of this vast area, the survey will also provide the necessary link for regional interpretation into the promising South Eastern Barents frontier which is soon to be opened for exploration.
