Data processing will be complete for the southern half of Utsira in September 2020.
Undertaken in conjunction with its partner, Axxis Geo Solutions (AGS) the 1584 km2 Utsira survey was completed in October 2019. The total number of nodes deployed for the survey was 143 567 and total shots was 3 942 230. The size of the input data for processing of the entire survey was 1.5 petabytes. To put the project into context, the data collected is equivalent to a typical 520 000 km2 marine survey - enough to cover an area the size of Spain.
TGS has also announced that it will be conducting a roadshow in Norway beginning on 18 March for any companies that wish to view this standout seismic imaging data.
Kristian Johansen, CEO at TGS, stated: “TGS has been at the forefront of the recent commercial development of multi-client OBN technologies and the launch of our Utsira OBN data library is a further step forward in our efforts to grow this market over the next decade.
Our OBN data is defining a new reference point for quality subsurface imaging which will be imperative for E&P companies as they seek to maximise the life of producing fields and production facilities.”
