ASKER, Norway – TGS has started acquisition of a multi-client 3D survey in the Barents Sea between the Finnmark platform and Nordkapp basin.

The 150 km survey covers 1,500 sq km, and follows the bended strike direction of the inverted margin between the two major structural elements.

Data acquired by the Polar Duke is scheduled to be available by 2Q 2012, says TGS-NOPEC Geophysical Co.

"We believe the survey will be instrumental in reducing trap risk on the narrow structural trend stretching east to the border of the previously disputed zone between Norway and Russia," commented Kjell Trommestad, senior vice president and general director of Europe and Russia for TGS.
