OSLO, Norway — PGS has secured new contracts from Equinor for this year’s summer season, under the terms of a frame agreement signed in 2021.
The company will acquire the 4D GeoStreamer monitoring surveys over the Visund field in the North Sea and the Snøhvit field in the Barents Sea.
Recently, PGS also secured commissions for a 3D exploration survey over the Prinsen and Hassel Ferdinand prospects in the Barents Sea.
Work on the Equinor campaign will start later in the current quarter, with an estimated duration approaching 5.5 vessel months.
In a separate development, PGS is making available 3D seismic depth data from its FSB Vision rejuvenation project, covering the offshore West of Shetland E&P area.
According to Sónia Pereira, vice president of Data Sales Europe, simultaneous inversion of refractions and reflection within FWI allowed the company to develop a detailed and conformable velocity model with greatly improved final data quality.
The Faroes Shetland basin offers multiple petroleum plays, but there are several features that obstruct subsurface imaging based on reflection seismic data.
