PARIS – CGG has started acquiring Phase 1 of its Steppingstone BroadSeis 3D multi-client survey program offshore Norway.

Steppingstone Phase 1, also called Halten Terrace, covers 2,260 sq km (873 sq mi) and targets the southern trend of Jurassic reservoirs and Cretaceous discoveries.

The three-month program is being acquired by the Oceanic Champion.

The BroadSeis acquisition and processing parameters are optimized to focus on providing better imaging of prospective Jurassic rotated fault blocks, inversion anticlines, and shallow targets. The survey is expected to open potentially prospective late Cretaceous/Tertiary turbidite plays to the west.
