NPD To Sell NCS 3D Seismic Data

The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate announced Tuesday that it will sell 3D seismic data covering Block 31/5, and a small part of Block 31/4, as part of a project to make data easily accessible to the industry in all phases of activities on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.

NPD acquired the seismic data in September 2008. The vessel used to gather the data was the Ramform Challenger and the information was processed by CGG in 2008/2009. The survey was undertaken to map the subsurface for potential COstorage sites. In 2009, this work was transferred from the NPD to GASSNOVA. GASSNOVA continued the work and acquired an additional 3D survey to the south.

The price of the seismic package is $179,986 (NOK 1,518,000).
