Dolphin Geophysical commence Finnmark 3D multi-client project in Barents SeaNews // March 12, 2013
Dolphin Geophysical, in partnership with Searcher Seismic, has announced details of the 1,407km2 non-exclusive 3D mulit-cleint seismic project on the Finnmark platform in the Barents Sea, Norway.
Processing has commenced in Dolphin's UK Centre using proprietary OpenCPS software. The processing sequence has been designed to enhance the imaging of the primary Jurassic targets located at around 1sec TWT. In addition, processing will focus on providing improved definition of the deeper Triassic and Permian Clastics.
A full suite of deliverables will be produced during the processing.
With planned infrastructure in Veidnes outside Honningsvåg in Finnmark announced by Statoil, the survey area is receiving a renewed interest from industry.
The data will be available for participating companies from the third quarter of 2013 or earlier in preparation for the Norwegian 23rd round nomination process.
