TGS, Dolphin Agree Barents Sea 3D Seismic Survey

Norwegian seismic surveyor TGS announced Thursday that it has signed a joint venture deal with Dolphin Geophysical to acquire approximately 1,675 square miles of 3D seismic data over the western part of the Hammerfest Basin in the Barents Sea.

TGS said the multi-client survey will provide the industry with broadband data over acreage not previously covered by 3D.

The new survey has been planned using TGS's and Dolphin's existing data as well as geological and geophysical knowledge from the area. The new project links Dolphin's Gotha 3D survey with TGS's Finnmark Platform 3D surveys and will provide seamless data coverage over large areas of the western Barents Sea, TGS said.
