OSLO, Norway – Dolphin Geophysical and Searcher Seismic are preparing to acquire 2,000 sq km (772 sq mi) of high-resolution 3D MC data over open acreage in the Norwegian Barents Sea.

They will use Dolphin’s 12-streamer, high-capacity 3D seismic vesselPolar Duke for the program, which relates to blocks nominated for Norway’s upcoming licensing round.

Searcher Seismic’s Geir Helgesen said: “Following the success of the recent high-resolution 2D survey a focused area will be covered by the 3D, which will for the first time offer a 3D high-resolution image of the Byornoya fault complex.”
